PG's Joe Coffey is On Location in Nashville, TN, for the 2010 Summer NAMM Show where he visits the Cordoba Guitars booth. In this segment, we get to check out some of their newest models including the Fusion Series 12 Orchestra and 14 Maple.
The Cordoba Fusion Orchestra 12 is the first full body guitar in the Fusion series. It features Indian rosewood back and sides, a lightweight cedar neck, and an ebony fingerboard and the option of either a solid Canadian cedar or European spruce top. The multiple ringed rosette is made of 100% natural woods and inlaid by hand, along with the Maple and ebony purfling that outlines the soundboard. A light mahogany binding accents the body shape of the Orchestra, which is slightly altered from a traditional nylon string guitar. The tone is dark and punchy in the basses, with strong, round trebles and balanced mids.
The 14 Maple is very similar to the Fusion 12 Orchestra, but its differences include a joint at the 14th fret, flame maple back and sides, mahogany neck, and a single cutaway body configuration.
