Great Tone with a Sleek, Fast-playing Design

The Cordoba 55FCE nylon-string acoustic-electric guitar combines a fast-playing feel with traditional Spanish construction techniques for a great playing experience. The 55FCE is built for tone, with flame maple back and sides with a solid European spruce top. The thin body design, narrower neck, and deep cutaway give you a faster playing experience than some classical guitars. And the thinner body style is comfortable for players of any style. Not only do you get premium tonewoods, the 55FCE shows Cordoba's attention to detail with a hand-inlayed wood rosette and gold tuners with pearl buttons. You also get the Fishman Prefix ProBlend pickup system built right in. For a highly playable guitar with some beautiful appointments, you'll love the Cordoba 55FCE.

Cordoba 55FCE Nylon-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Traditional design and construction
  • Premium tonewoods
  • Fishman electronics
Traditional Design:

The Cordoba 55FCE doesn't skimp on construction. The 55FCE features traditional handmade classical guitar design, including the solid European spruce top with Spanish-style fan bracing. Fan bracing is preferred for flamenco guitars over lattice bracing, allowing the 55FCE's top to vibrate more freely while still providing evenly balanced tone.

Quality Tonewoods:

While the Cordoba 55FCE is inexpensive, Cordoba did not sacrifice quality materials. The flame maple back and sides set a powerful tonal foundation for the solid European spruce top, giving you the right balance of warmth and brightness. The neck is solid Spanish cedar, for maximum transfer of string energy to the spruce top. An ebony fingerboard and Indian rosewood bridge complete the elegant look.

Fishman electronics:

Cordoba's 55FCE features Fishman's Prefix Problend pickup system for ultimate plugged-in tone. The Problend system combines a piezo pickup with an internal mic, allowing you to blend the two signals to taste. So you get the snappy bite and presence of a piezo pickup, with the naturally warm and organic tones you can only get with a microphone. You'll love how the 55FCE sounds plugged-in.

First acoustic/electric hollow body

This guitar replaced my 42 year old Malaga that accompanied me all over the world for decades. Unamplified or amplified it is a pleasure to play. This guitar has a full bodied sound unamplified (for jamming) and the Fishman electronics helps strengthen the treble strings to the base intensity for recording (or personal preferences). The narrow body is also comfortable although I need to get use to my right arm position as it's definitely different than a full body acoustic and takes some time to get used to. I recommend this guitar to anyone looking for a multipurpose guitar that is fun to play and sounds incredible with or without an amp.
