Cordoba C9-E Nylon-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar
Based on one of the original models in Cordobaâ€™s Luthier series, the Cordoba C9-E is built with a solid European spruce top with solid mahogany back and sides. The C9-E features a fan bracing pattern, which gives the center of the soundboard more surface area to vibrate and respond to the tension of the strings. A more responsive soundboard makes the guitar louder, and provides better tone. The C9-E is the perfect choice for the serious classical guitarist, or for any player looking to upgrade to a concert-level instrument at an affordable price. The inclusion of the Fishman Sonitone pickup on the C9-E allows for easy amplification.
Like every guitar in the Luthier series, the C9-E is built with Spanish heel construction, where the top of the guitar is attached to the neck, the sides are added next, and the guitarâ€™s body is sealed by the installation of the back. This construction feature allows the entire instrument to vibrate as one unified piece. The C9-E has the neck shape and flat fingerboard characteristic of traditional classical guitars, and includes the added benefit of a two-way truss rod built into the neck.
Aesthetic touches like the mother-of-pearl weave rosette inspired by a 1920â€™s Domingo Esteso guitar add a touch of vintage elegance to this best-seller. Other premium features include a rosewood fingerboard, rosewood bridge, high gloss finish, and Savarez Cristal Corum strings.
The C9-E includes Cordobaâ€™s lightweight polyfoam case.
