Acoustic guitars are the heart and soul of so many Spanish and Latin genres, it comes as no surprise that they would be the exclusive specialty of a luthier that shares its name with provinces in Spain and Argentina. Committed to everything nylon-stringed, Cordoba makes an impressive lineup of classical, flamenco, orchestral and contemporary guitars. A great example of Cordoba's craftsmanship is the Loriente Clarita classical guitar. Topped by Canadian cedar with Indian rosewood taking up the rear, this guitar is handcrafted in Barcelona, Spain. The attention to detail is nothing short of incredible, making the Clarita a true masterpiece: an artisanal concert guitar that sounds as beautiful as it looks.
If you're a beginner or an adventurer, you might consider something like the La Playa Travel Half-size guitar. This model is a departure from most of Cordoba's guitars since it has steel strings, but it's a change that makes the guitar easier to keep in tune when you're taking it off the beaten path - which is exactly what it's made for. The reduced size makes it easy to bring anywhere as well as ideal for young players, and its cutaway body style gives you unhindered access to every last fret.
Two things that La Playa has in common with many of Cordoba's other guitars are a pickup and preamp. If you want the most versatile instrument you can get, acoustic-electric models like this are the way to go. Unplugged, they're normal acoustic guitars, but when you want to really be heard, you can hook up an amp and get as much volume as you need.
Flamenco, classical and other nylon-stringed guitars are as popular now as they've ever been. Whether you're a beginner, hobbyist, Latin or flamenco band member or even in an orchestra, there's a Cordoba guitar here that's right for you. Take a look - you'll be pleased with what you can find.
