Steel string players enjoy the feel and tone of the 12 Jet guitar by Cordoba. The Jet belongs to Fusion series which is a line of high quality hybrid style nylon string guitars designed to play and feel like steel string acoustics. Most notably, the necks are carved thinner than traditional Spanish-style classical guitars and have a nut width of 48mm (1 7/8 inches).
The 12 fret model, 12 Jet, more closely resembles a traditional classical guitar, and allows the bridge to sit a bit further back on the soundboard, where resonance is optimized for a large sound with long sustain. Featuring 12 frets plus slimmer dimensions combined with a radiused fingerboard give the Fusion series the feel and playability that most steel string and electric guitar players are used to.
Additional features include cutaway body style, Fishman Presys with built in digital tuner, 2 way adjustable truss rods and Savarez Corum Alliance strings that offer the higher tension feel that most crossover players are looking for. The Jet is built with a solid Canadian cedar top and Indian rosewood back and sides. It gets its name from its “jet” black finish, a high gloss polyurethane black that goes beautifully with the guitar’s Mother-of-Pearl appointments on the headstock and rosette. It also comes equipped with the Fishman Presys pickup. The fingerboard and bridge are rosewood, neck has 12 frets to the body and comes with a deluxe Cordoba gig bag.
Tonally the Fusion series models have all the warmth, body, and resonance that traditional classical nylon string guitars are known for, and are built using traditional Spanish guitar methods like domed soundboards and fan bracing patterns. Cordoba’s Fusion series was first to effectively merge the feel of a steel string with the tone of a classical guitar, and with a variety of wood options and finishes is the most comprehensive line of crossover style nylon string hybrids on the market.
