The Cordoba Fusion 14 Maple Classical Acoustic Electric Guitar features a solid European spruce top, flamed maple back and sides, sleek high gloss PU finish, and a Fishman Presys Blend pickup with an onboard tuner. A nylon string guitar for the steel string crossover guitarist, the Cordoba 14 Maple has a 48mm nut width and a radiused ebony fingerboard.
Most notably, the necks are carved thinner than traditional Spanish-style classical guitars and have a nut width of 48mm (1 7/8 inch). With 14 frets to the body, these 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. 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 in the design.

The Maple is built with a solid European spruce top and flamed maple back and sides. The neck has 14 frets to the body, and has an ebony fingerboard. The bridge, binding, and headstock overlay are made of rosewood, and the rosette is hand inlaid using maple and rosewood rings. The Maple is equipped with the Fishman Presys Blend pickup, and includes a deluxe Cordoba gig bag.
The 14-fret model has a more familiar upper register for steel-string players. The bridge is shifted slightly forward from the center of the soundboard, increasing ease of playability for the steel string or electric player. More frets are exposed, creating an easier territory for soloing.
