Córdoba Guitars Releases the Mini II

The newly designed travel guitar features a 22 7/8” scale length that works with standard tuning.

Santa Monica, CA (May 17, 2018) -- After many years of success with the Mini, Córdoba is pleased to introduce a fresh new take on the travel-size nylon string guitar: the Mini II.

The Córdoba Mini II simplifies impromptu jam sessions thanks to a new scale length that suits Standard E tuning (580mm / 22 7/8”). With a 48mm nut width, its neck will feel like home for crossover players and beginners. When compared to the original Mini, the Mini II is slightly larger, featuring a deeper body and traditional nylon-string tie block on the bridge. The Mini II will be available in three exciting tone-wood options and while some short-scale instruments sound more “ukulele”, the Mini II’s voice skews guitar - warm and full.

The all-mahogany Mini II MH offers a classic tone and the flamed mahogany Mini II FMH is an easy upgrade for those who seek an exotic look and sound. Lastly, the Mini II EB-CE features a spruce top and striped ebony back/sides. It's the most performance-ready option thanks to its built-in pickup and onboard tuner.

Starting at just $129, the Mini II easily fits into a ½ size gig bag and is the perfect travel-friendly nylon-string guitar for any musician!

  • Mini II MH - $180 MSRP • $129 MAP USD
  • Mini II FMH - $250 MSRP • $179 MAP USD
  • MIni II EB-CE - $345 MSRP • $249 MAP USD

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
