In Stock!

Play Like a Gipsy King!

The Cordoba GK Pro Negra Gipsy Kings signature model nylon-string acoustic guitar combines a fast-playing feel with traditional flamenco construction techniques for a remarkable playing experience. The GK Pro Negra is built for tone, with solid Indian rosewood back and sides with a solid European spruce top. The mahogany neck is slightly thinner and narrower than traditional classical guitars for smooth playability. And the thinner body style is comfortable for players of any style. Not only do you get premium tonewoods, the GK Pro Negra shows Cordoba's attention to detail with a hand-inlayed wood rosette and premium gold tuners. 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 GK Pro Negra.

Cordoba GK Pro Negra Gipsy Kings Signature Model Nylon-string Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
  • Traditional design offers classic tones
  • Premium tonewoods
  • Great look, great playability
Traditional design offers classic tones

The Cordoba GK Pro Negra doesn't skimp on construction. The GK Pro Negra 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 guitar's top to vibrate more freely while still providing evenly balanced tone.

Premium tonewoods

While the Cordoba GK Pro Negra is inexpensive, Cordoba did not sacrifice quality materials. The solid Indian rosewood 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 mahogany, for maximum transfer of string energy to the spruce top. An ebony fingerboard and Indian rosewood bridge complete the elegant look.

Great look, great playability

The Cordoba GK Pro Negra is gorgeous to simply look at, from the detailed hand-inlayed rosette and Indian rosewood binding to the premium gold tuners. And you'll love how the gloss finish shows off the rosewood body and European spruce top. But looks aren't everything - the GK Pro Negra was designed with playability in mind, and the great look is just the icing on the classical cake.

Cordoba GK Pro Negra Gipsy Kings Signature Model Nylon-string Acoustic Guitar Features:
  • Great-sounding, fast-playing guitar at an amazing price
  • Traditional Spanish fan bracing provides a balanced, lively sound
  • Solid Indian rosewood back and sides for full-bodied frequency response
  • Solid European spruce top for excellent definition and projection
  • HumiCase Protege case included

My new go-to guitar

I am an acoustic (mostly steel string) fingerstyle guitarist. When I first played a demo model of the GK Negra at a local chain music store I was not in the market for a nylon string classical. I just wanted to try something different. Different it was! I was immediately blown away by both the playability and the fabulously lush sound I was able to produce. I played for a couple of hours and couldn't stop. A sales person suggested I plug in and when I did it was all over...I couldn't put the guitar down. The Fishman Prefix ProBlend pickup system reproduced all the subtile tonal color that captured my attention when I first started playing acoustically. I knew immediately that I wanted to own this guitar. The store I was at didn't have a "new" model and wasn't going to be able to get one for over a month. I found the same guitar on Sweetwater (for less!) and, though I have never bought a guitar that I didn't actually pick up an play first, I decided to give an online purchase a try (largely because of Sweetwater's return policy and satisfaction guarentee). I had my guitar in a couple of days. It was set up even better than the one I played in the store and had the same great sound. This is important because there can be inconsistency in tonal quality between individual guitars even when they are the same model. This was not the case with Cordoba. I was VERY pleased with Sweetwaters service and attention to detail. They made my first experience buying a guitar online a positive one (so much so that I will definitely shop with them again). I own (and have owned) high end Taylors, Martins and a vintage Guild. I just love the nuances of different tonewood combinations and guitar designs. I could not believe how well the Cordoba stood up against my other much more expensive guitars in terms of tone quality and playability. It is my go-to guitar at home and I fully expect to be using it at gigs regularly in the very near future. The only reason its not my primary gig guitar now is that I re-writing many of my arrangements of songs I play on steel string because, the GK Pro is so playable. I am able to play better and do more with this guitar. I'm sure a classical or flamenco guitar purist would not appreciate some of the deviations/innovations Cordoba has incorporated into the GK Pro Negra - like the relatively low action, the narrower neck radius and more rounded neck. But it is a beautiful instrument in its own right and a joy to play for a crossover steel string player like myself. High marks for Cordoba and Sweetwater!

Cordoba GK Pro Negra

Mine came yesterday by UPS and must state very well packaged. Always been interested in Nylon stringed guitars and took the plunge. Well this model blew me away perfect in all aspects and sounds outstanding both plugged in and not. The finish and workmanship....outstanding and that special case great.....I added it to my other non-nylon electric/acoustic guitars. I found the Cordoba has a higher string action and it takes awhile to get used to but that is the way all nylon string guitars are built....but they sound better than metal strings. I made a good decision on this guitar thanks to Paul Allen my Sweeter Rep. Very satisfied no issues what so ever..Jim Fallon, Nv.

I had to get another one!

I already own several Cordoba Guitars, including a GK Pro Negra (see my first review below) and have made it the instrument of choice for my work. I generally play anywhere from 6 to 8 shows a week, so I need a real instrument of quality. My original GK Pro has taken a literal beating in the last 3 years, adding up to almost 1,000 shows. I live in the midwest and tour between here and the tropics, so the guitar not only has a lot of shows to do, but goes through severe climate changes overnight. I recently had an accident where the case fell of a counter, broke, and the guitar came flying out and hit the floor, causing an 7 inch crack in her top. Although she is on the mend and will be back on track in a couple of week, and event though I have other Cordoba models that are similar to the GK Pro (55FCE Negra, GK Studio Negra), I wasn't feeling well about the thought of losing this guitar if it took another blow. There was never second guessing or any thought on trying another guitar. The Cordoba GK Pro Negra will always be the sound of my live shows! I also would like to say thank you to my friend, Robert Williams, who is not just a great sales engineer, but a great human being. Un abrazo, hermano! Thank you Cordoba for making such great instruments and helping me in my life in music. Here's to another 1,000 shows! Fernando Ufret

Sweet!!!

I purchased the Cordoba Pro Negra Spruce&Rosewood from Sweetwater and received the guitar in less than 2 days. The guitar is a beauty with matching sound. The guitar has even tones and great bass response for playing Jazz/Sinatra styles as well as instrumentals. I love the overtones and overall brilliance of this guitar. The humidified case is a big plus. Thanks, Sweetwater, for superior service and a wonderful product.

Great Instrument

Love this guitar. It really has an amazing tone and sound. It also really puts out the volume (acoustically). I have run it through my PA and all of my guitar amps and the electronics are very pliable, so I can get the sound I'm looking for. My only negative comment would be Cordoba advertises this as a flamenco style and the action comes setup like a standard classical guitar, but a visit for a setup at my local luthier set it right. I play primarily jazz and classical string heights are problem up around the 12th fret for me at least. It is long way to go to get to fret board with some of those really weird chords.
