Cordoba 55FCE Electro Classical Thinline guitar with cutaway design and including hard case in Natural Blond finish. This hand crafted premium quality instrument boasts a fantastic blend of upscale specifications combined with upscale craftsmanship.
This is what the guys at Cordoba have to say about this incredibly lovely thinline high end electro classical guitar in - The handcrafted 55FCE's thin, feedback-resistant body makes this Spanish-made guitar an essential tool in the gigging musician's arsenal. The chosen guitar of the Gipsy Kings, its solid European spruce top is paired with stunning flamed maple back and sides and honey amber tinted or natural polyurethane finish.
One of Cordoba’s most popular acoustic-electric models, the 55FCE is the chosen guitar of the Gipsy Kings for its thinbody cutaway design, and slightly narrower nut width. Handmade in Spain with a solid European spruce top and flamed maple back and sides, this flamenco guitar has a bright, snappy tone and modern aesthetic. With its Fishman Prefix ProBlend onboard electronics with 3-band EQ and built-in microphone, the 55FCE is stage-ready, and its thinbody design helps reduce feedback when the guitar is amplified at high volumes. With low action and little relief in the neck, this guitar offers substantial comfort and ease of playability.
The 55FCE’s thinbody design makes it the perfect choice for exploring the nuances in sound that can only be captured with nylon strings, and bringing them to the stage. Like every Cordoba guitar, this model also has a two-way truss rod built into the neck. Other premium features include a Spanish cedar neck, ebony fingerboard, Indian rosewood binding and bridge, a clear flamenco-style tap plate, and Savarez Cristal Corum strings. The 55FCE features a high gloss polyurethane finish in either Honey Amber or Natural Blonde, and includes a custom HumiCase Thinbody Protégé case.

Beautiful looking guitar, well made, and very easy to play. Has many of the benefits of 'crossovers' - cutaway, thin body etc, but has a more classical feel to it, and in my opinion this makes it much easier to play any style. Having tried some 48mm nut crossovers, the string spacing is too cramped with nylon strings. If you are thinking of moving over to nylon from steel, then don't dismiss a more 'traditional' classical fingerboard. Also, the sound is surprisingly full for such a thin guitar, but this also makes it lightweight and easy to hold stood up with a strap. The superior electronics enable a blend of piezo and mic which gives a more natural sound.
Thanks to the staff at Project Music for helping choose this beauty unseen from a distance away.
