A staple in the Iberia series, the Cordoba C5-CEBK Acoustic Electric Nylon Guitar features a solid Canadian cedar top, mahogany back and sides, and a jet-black finish. The combination of the solid cedar top with mahogany back and sides gives the C5-CE a warm, round sound. The construction is based upon the traditional Spanish classical guitar with the exception of a soft cutaway and a slightly thinner neck. Nylon string guitars are built more lightly than steel string guitars, allowing the soundboard to vibrate and resonate more freely. The fan bracing pattern gives the center of the soundboard more surface area to vibrate, and respond to the tension of the strings. A more responsive soundboard makes the guitar louder, and provides better tone.
Handmade in the traditional Spanish style, the C5-CE also features an all wood inlaid rosette, rosewood binding, hand-carved headstock, fan bracing system, and bone nut and saddle. The Fishman Isys+ 2band pickup system produces a rich and natural sound when amplified - perfect for gigging and recording.
