Cordoba Espana 55FCE Negra Ziricote Electro Classical Guitar


The Cordoba 55FCE Negra crossover style guitar is a nylon-string guitar designed to look and feel like a steel string acoustic. Handmade in Spain and featuring a solid European Spruce top and Ziricote back and sides, the 55FCE Negra provides a smooth, rich and versatile tone paired with a striking aesthetic. Its Fishman Prefix ProBlend on-board electronics featuring 3-band EQ and built-in microphone mean the guitar is ready for gigging straight away. Offering a comfortable low action neck and ease of playability, the 55FCE is perfect for competent classical players to take that unique nylon sound to the stage, and its thinbody design aids feedback reduction at highly amplified volumes.

Includes a complimentary custom HumiCase Thinbody Protege guitar case.

The Cordoba 55FCE Negra really does deserve its place at the top of the range; with superior sound and build quality there's no comparison to the tones this nylon-string guitar can produce whether you are practising at home, or plugged in on stage. For these reasons the 55FCE is the chosen guitar of the Gipsy Kings, its thinbody cutaway design and narrower nut width resulting in the perfect classical crossover.

A flamenco-style tap plate, alongside a Spanish Cedar neck, Ebony fingerboard, Indian Rosewood binding and bridge and Savarez Cristal Corum strings, offers a real premium look and feel to the instrument, and a two-way truss rod brings stability and sturdiness to the Cordoba Espana 55FCE Negra. The Fishman Prefix Problend electronics offer all the versatility you need with EQ and volume controls, pickup/mic. blend control and a feedback-fighting notch filter and phase switch. On top of all this the Fishman preamp features a revolutionary pivot design for instant 9-volt battery access and ease of use.
