If you choose to return the guitar after it’s had a Plek setup you will still be liable for the cost of the plek setup except for in cases where we’ve offered it as part of a promotion or offer.

Cordoba Espana 55FCE Negra

Solid Spruce Top, Ziricote Back & Sides

The 55FCE is part of Cordoba's Espana range of guitars.  These are models that are made in Spain and feature some stunning designs which are all exclusive to this particular series.  This guitar looks particularly gorgeous but the distinctive and striking ziricote is not just eye-candy at the expense of tone; instead it serves beautifully to tick both boxes.

Description

The 55FCE is part of Cordoba's Espana range of guitars.  These are models that are made in Spain and feature some stunning designs which are all exclusive to this particular series.  This guitar looks particularly gorgeous but the distinctive and striking ziricote is not just eye-candy at the expense of tone; instead it serves beautifully to tick both boxes.

The top on this beautiful classical guitar is a classic choice - solid spruce and fan-braced.  This style of bracing (pioneered on classical guitars by Antonio de Torres Jurado) gives a far superior bass response and dynamics when compared to a ladder-braced classical.  The neck is made of cedar and is joined to the body using the Spanish heel method - another Torres invention.  This is a more time-consuming method of construction where the guitar is built around the beck as opposed to simply being added on.  This gives a strong and sturdy construction and makes the body and neck one cohesive piece which clearly has a positive effect on the resonance of the instrument.

The fingerboard on this guitar is ebony whilst the headplate, bridge and binding are all rosewood.  The rosette is a traditional wooden style.  An amazing feat that is often overlooked.  Either side of it is a clear flamenco tap-plate.  More modern features include a dual-action truss rod, so that the playability can be adjusted over time and a humidified hardshell case.

The guitar also includes Fishman's Presys Blend pickup system.  This is fantastic as it combines an under saddle piezo with an internal microphone that can be blended in.  This will help re-create a natural sound without having to use an external mic.  The body is thin to help resist feedback but due to excellent design, it does not sound lacking at all.  Given all these features, it is not hard to see why this guitar is used by the Gipsy Kings.

As a ziricote guitar varies so much in appearance from piece to piece, buying from Peach means you can see the exact guitar you are getting thanks to our in-house studio photography.
