The 12 Natural belongs to Cordoba's Fusion series, a line of high-quality crossover or 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).
With 12 frets to the body, these slimmer dimensions combined with a radiused fingerboard give the Cordoba 12 Natural 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.
Additional features include a cutaway body styles, Fishman pickup, 2-way adjustable truss rods, and Savarez Corum Alliance strings that offer the higher tension feel that most crossover players are looking for.
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.
