Handmade with Black and White Ebony

Cordoba's 45 Limited is a nylon-string acoustic guitar masterpiece crafted from breathtakingly beautiful tonewoods. The 45 Limited is part of Cordoba's Espana series of guitars that are made in the traditional fashion in Spain. The guitar's appearance and tone emanate from a strong-sounding European spruce top and black and white ebony back and sides. This type of ebony is rich with gorgeous figuring and delivers clarity and power. Make the 45 Limited yours while it is still available.

Cordoba 45 Limited Nylon-string Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
  • Espana Series
  • Exotic tonewood complement
  • Limited edition
Espana Series

Cordoba's Espana series of classical and flamenco acoustic guitars are inspired by old-world craftsmanship and design. They build these beautiful instruments by hand in the traditional fashion in Spain, the home of the nylon-string acoustic guitar. You'll find beautiful woods, Torres-style bracing, a real bone nut and saddle, and many other appointments that will remind of of the early days of the instrument. Sweetwater is proud to offer you this work of art.

Exotic tonewood complement

The Cordoba 45 Limited nylon-string acoustic guitar is hand crafted from amazing tonewoods that dazzle both visually and sonically. The guitar's top is a robust-sounding solid piece of European spruce. This type of spruce delivers plenty of note articulation while supplying a surprising amount of low end. The back and sides of the 45 Limited are black and white ebony. This is a very rare wood that boasts immense figuring and a precise tonal signature. The neck and fretboard are crafted from mahogany and ebony.

Limited edition

Only a select number of 45 Limited nylon-string acoustic guitars are being made. The scarcity of the black and white ebony will make it a fantastic collector's item. And features such as a real bone string nut and saddle, gold-plated tuning machines, and a headstock and heel cap that feature black and white ebony overlays are sure to generate a lot of demand for this instrument. When the 45 Limited it gone, it truly is gone, so get yours while you can.

Awesome Cordoba

After looking at this guitar for months, and having started out with Flamenco/Classical guitars and not having one. I decided this was the guitar to purchase. Beautiful white/black Ebony is stunning. Now, I'm back to my Aaron Shearer books purchased back in the 70's. Thank you Will Newbill and the Sweetwater staff for the lower action setup and string change. Anyone in doubt about this guitar, should dive in head first. You want be disappointed.

Cordoba 45 limited!

What a beautiful guitar. It plays nicely and sounds even better. Not quite the mellow sound of a cedar but a nice clear pronounced sound emphasized even more by the ebony back and sides. You will not be disappointed !

More Than I Could Ever Want

I'm the type of person who must try a guitar in person for sound, playability, and feel before purchasing it. I went to my local guitar store and came across a couple of Cordobas that I thoroughly enjoyed, especially the one with maple back and sides. This encouraged me to look into the company to see what else they had to offer. The Espana series appealed to me the most, as this lineup consists of guitars handcrafted in Spain. While all of them are quite attractive, the 45 Limited immediately caught my attention due to the black and white ebony back and sides. I've never seen or played an ebony guitar before and I really liked what I saw in the photos, so I decided to take a leap of faith and order the guitar. Boy was this the right call. This guitar is more than I could have ever hoped it would be. The sound is extremely rich and vibrant while projecting a commanding volume all at the same time. The action was perfect right out of the box, which means the playability is excellent. This is, by far, the nicest sounding nylon-string guitar I have ever played. Although the photos of this guitar are stunning, it is even more beautiful in person. The icing on the cake was the Humicase that was included with this instrument. In addition to all of this, I have received excellent service from Sweetwater and my Sales Engineer, Andy. The purchasing process was painless, I received a phone call thanking me for my business and to confirm the shipping instructions, an email to notify me that FedEx had dropped off the guitar, and another email to thank me for my business to conclude the buying process. I am thoroughly satisfied with my new (and first) Cordoba nylon-string guitar and the complementary service by Sweetwater.

Cordoba 45 Limited

I own a Cordoba C-5 and C-7. The 45 Limited is bit softer sound. I'm hoping the sound will increase as the guitar ages. It looks stunning. The team at Sweetwater was great to work with, from order through delivery. Overall, including the free shipping and Humi-Case, I think the purchase price is a deal.

Beautiful to look at!

Very nice guitar for the price. Sound is a bit quieter than the C10s because of the laminated back and sides, but still a nice clear sounding guitar. I purchased this because it is a limited edition and hopefully gains value as it ages. I'm sure that, kept properly humidified, the spruce top will open up as time goes on. I have already noticed a small change in just the month I've owned it. For sound, I still prefer my C10s. We'll see if that lasts. I'm not a fan of the Savarez strings that came with it so I changed them out and the sound improved immediately. Mark Stein was very helpful during the purchase and after the delivery of this guitar. I appreciate the Sweetwater touch:-)
