Cordoba Esteso Master Series Classical Acoustic Guitar





Cordoba Esteso Master Series Classical Acoustic Guitar

Cordoba’s Esteso is built with either a solid European spruce or solid Canadian cedar top, paired with solid Palo Escrito back and sides. Palo Escrito is a variety of rosewood, renowned for its striking figure, great volume, and light weight. The Cordoba Esteso has a more petite body shape than many full size guitars, measuring 13 ¾” at the lower bout. It has a 650mm scale length, 52mm nut width, and a comfortable classical guitar neck profile. Additional features include a Spanish cedar neck topped with an African ebony fingerboard, flamed maple binding, intricate pearloid rosette, nitrocellulose finish, and Esteso’s 5-fan bracing pattern. Cordoba added a few modern refinements such as a truss rod, geared tuning machines, durable finish, and non-gut strings. The result is an instrument that exemplifies authentic Esteso designs, voicing, and feel, and captures a rare piece of guitar making history.

Cordoba then partnered with Francisco Navarro Garcia, who is building each Esteso model with a small team of only a few builders, using traditional Spanish techniques in an old world-style workshop in Paracho, Mexico.

All of our guitars come with a new standard factory setup, but may require a small amount of fine tuning to fit the players personal taste. In order to prevent false warranty claims, the guitar is given a new serial number and the back of the head-stock is lightly stamped "used" or "2nd" by the authorized refurbishing center. These guitars are the next best thing to buying new!
