Cordoba Guitars Introduces the GK Pro Maple

The GK Pro Maple features the signature rosette of the Luthier series, a mother-of-pearl hand-inlaid design inspired by a 1920s Domingo Esteso rosette, and includes a humidified hardshell case.

Santa Monica, CA (June 19, 2014) -- Following the continued popularity of Cordoba’s GK Studio and GK Pro models, Cordoba is excited to introduce the brand new GK Pro Maple. This is Cordoba’s first cutaway guitar made with solid flamed maple back and sides, paired with a solid European spruce top. Like its sister GK Pro models, the GK Pro Maple features a flatter neck angle, allowing for low action and ease of playability. The Fishman Prefix ProBlend pickup makes this the ideal choice for gigging musicians across flamenco, rock, jazz, blues, and other genres of music. The GK Pro Maple features the signature rosette of the Luthier series, a mother-of-pearl hand-inlaid design inspired by a 1920s Domingo Esteso rosette, and includes a humidified hardshell case.

GK Pro Maple Specs: Solid spruce top, solid flamed maple back and sides, mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard, natural high gloss PU finish, 50mm nut width, 650mm scale length, Fishman Prefix ProBlend, Savarez Cristal Corum strings. Includes Cordoba humidified archtop wood case.

Street: $1679.99

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
