The ultimate crossover nylon-string guitar is available for a limited time as a negra model with ziricote back and sides! The Cordoba Espana 55FCE Negra-Z is the chosen guitar of the Gipsy Kings for its thinbody design, deep cutaway, and slightly thinner neck width. The rich, smooth sound of ziricote pairs nicely with the 55FCE’s solid spruce top for an overall fantastic tone. Featuring the Fishman Prefix ProBlend on board electronics with 3-band EQ, the 55FCE Negra is the perfect guitar for improvisation with an amplified sound. Includes a HumiCase Thinbody Protege case. Handmade in Valencia, Spain.
All guitars purchased on the All Strings Nylon website undergo a thorough setup performed by a professional luthier, Chuck Marfione, at no extra cost to our customers. The setup includes the following steps:
I'd never bought a guitar sight unseen before ASN. Chuck and Magz are amazing people and took my order flawlessly. Chuck called me on the phone several times just to make sure he was going to get the setup correctly. He made some suggestions based upon my playing style and nailed the setup the first time! He went above and beyond the call when he custom made 3 different saddles for the guitar on the off chance that his initial setup wasn't exactly what I was looking for. I've actually fiddled around with the different saddles and it's almost like having 3 different guitars because of the variance in the action, etc. Additionally he sent me a 2 page letter with all of the specifics on my instrument including the measurement(s) of the separate saddles he made. This was a personal letter and not some typical corporate "form letter" with my name cut and pasted into it. The service was exemplary and both the Cordoba 55FCE itself and ASN exceeded my expectations. I've told everyone I know who plays nylon about this service and will continue to do so. If you're a serious nylon player, do yourself an enormous favor and contact ASN before going anywhere else either online or in person- you'll be as blown away as I was. I'd definitely give this the patented Homer Simpson "12 thumbs up". (Posted on 8/3/2015)
Chuck at AllStringsNylon was so friendly and helpful, with a professional setup for my new guitar included! The 55FCE is so easy to play, with a nice full sound for an instrument that is narrow. The neck is so finger style friendly and I highly recommend this guitar if you're looking for a classical/flamenco style guitar made in Spain with electronics at a reasonable price. I am really happy.
Thanks to Chuck & Magz...
Full disclosure, the case that comes with it doesn't really fit the instrument, is too large. I'll have to add some fabric covered foam to make this work longterm. Surprised that Cordoba would miss the mark with that. But, it's not really a big deal, just wanted to report this. (Posted on 2/27/2015)
