Great breeding with modern electronics!

The Cordoba RCWE Acoustic-Electric Guitar is the classical counterpart to the flamenco FCWE model. The soundboard is solid German spruce, and the back and sides are rosewood. Like the FCWE, this model is equipped with a Fishman Pro-Blend pickup, has the cutaway body design, and also has a slightly narrower fingerboard. The thin body gives this Cordoba guitar a sleek look which also assists in making it very playable live onstage for virtually any style of music.

As it's been pointed out before--the natural acoustic sound of the RCWE is good, but not as refined as a concert hall model--however, when plugged in, the amplified sound is better than othere similar amplified nylon guitars I have tried.The action was a bit high--I had to reduce the saddle--and put some high tension strings on it, but it is very lightweight, very comfortable to play, with killer tone through an AER amp. With the lower action, I am thinking of adding tap plates. It reminds me more of a flamenco negra type of guitar--you can play classical, but I didn't get it for that. I got it for crossover, contemporary stuff, and it dominates the field in that regard

RCWE review

By mlk

from Princeton, NJ

probably the richest and mellowest tone you can get on a thin-body nylon string guitar today. the overall craftsmanship is flawless. the only problem I have with it is the narrower neck. If you're a classical guitarist, you may find the string separation a lot narrower than other typical classical guitars. I had to adjust my right hand technique considerably with much shorter and stronger free strokes to regain some of the clarity and speed that I had on my previous full body classical guitars. Regardless, for other styles, folk, jazz, or flamenco, this guitar is a gem and definitely recommended.

Cordoba RCWE = Pure Pleasure +

By Cordoba Jazzer

from Palm Springs California

I'm a musician since I was eleven years old. I have owned and played many guitars in the past forty years, many have come and gone, but this guitar has the best playability, sound, and tone. I work with it every night now, playing easy jazz and some folk, and travel with five instruments on the road. I am going to purchase two more of these, I believe this will become one of the guitars I will take to the grave, It is sure to become a classic.

      Unbelievable how much tone and volume come out of such a narrow comfortable body!


      Guitar Making at its Best

      Worth every cent, the Cordoba RCWE has a beautiful tone, finish, and is comfortable to play.


      Very nice guitar

      I'm very impressed with the quality, sound, and features of this instrument. Although the thin-line body's tone and projection isn't quite as large as that of a full-width gut-string, when it's plugged into an amp, it really opens up. Extremely playable, well-built instrument; recommended!


      Sweet, just that

      By Kris Alton

      from Morro Bay, CA

      The RCWE is the sweetest guitar I think I have ever played. It begs to be played and is the most forgiving guitar. When linked up with a nice acoustic amp,in my opinion,shines better than anything I have played before.


      Play Rythmn Guitar in your Group?

      from Undisclosed

      I found this wonderful Acoustic-Electric that can provide really BIG, FULL rhythmn background and sound BIGGER than your Strat or Les Paul. Nice, Fast neck (once you can get over the slightly wider fret board) I bought it as a travel guitar to rehearse on the road but now use it in performance. Workmanship is first-rate, beautiful wood, 18 useable frets, nice gold hardware. I've got guitars that cost more but right now, none that I like better.

      This is THE most amazing A/E classical guitar I've ever had the pleasure of playing. It plays effortlessly. Hard to describle. Comfortable neck. Thin body but big sound especially when plugged in. I played through a Fender A/E amp (can't remember which one) but it sounds incredible.
