The Cordoba Fusion Orchestra Spruce Top Classical Guitar is the first full body guitar in the Fusion series. Although the Orchestra is full-bodied, its shape is slightly altered from that of a traditional nylon string guitar, accented by a light mahogany binding.
Cordoba Fusion Orchestra Spruce Top Classical Guitar Features
- Solid European Spruce top
- Indian Rosewood back and sides, a lightweight Cedar neck, and an Ebony fingerboard
- The thin 1 7/8 inch neck is comfortable for any player
- The radiused fingerboard makes playability quick, comfortable, and easy
- Tone is dark and punchy in the basses, with strong, round trebles and balanced mids
Like the other Fusion models, the Orchestra's neck is carved thinner than traditional Spanish-style classical guitars, and has a nut width of 48mm or 1 7/8 inch. These slimmer dimensions combined with a radiused fingerboard give the Fusion series guitars 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 Orchestra is built with the classic combination of a solid European spruce and Indian rosewood back and sides. The neck has 12 frets to the body and an ebony fingerboard. The bridge and headstock overlay are made of rosewood, and the rosette is hand inlaid using maple and rosewood rings. With mahogany binding and a high gloss PU finish, the Orchestra is the perfect blend of traditional materials with modern aesthetic touches. A deluxe Cordoba gig bag is included as well.
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.
