A Great Balance of Form and Function

Cordoba's Orchestra CE acoustic-electric nylon-string guitar gives you the full-bodied sound and projection provided by the orchestra body style, with the convenient fret access allowed by its single cutaway. You'll love the sound of the Orchestra CE's European spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides. And while the sound is big and robust, the Orchestra CE plays fast and smooth thanks to its thinner 1-7/8" mahogany neck and 16" radius ebony fingerboard. Of course, Cordoba's attention to detail goes beyond the sound and feel of the guitar. The elegant Orchestra CE features a hand-inlayed rosette, light mahogany binding, and maple and ebony purfling for a stunning look. Whether you want a great looking and playing acoustic, or need a dependable acoustic-electric for playing live, you won't regret getting the Cordoba Orchestra CE acoustic-electric nylon-string guitar.

Cordoba Orchestra CE Acoustic/Electric Nylon-string Guitar at a Glance:

Your Cordoba Orchestra CE comes with a built-in Fishman Presys Blend pickup system for great plugged-in tone.

Premium tonewoods:

While the Cordoba Orchestra CE is inexpensive for its class, Cordoba did not sacrifice quality materials. The 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 rosewood bridge complete the elegant look.

Very Happy

After some problems with FedEx (not anything you could have helped with) I finally got the guitar. The guitar arrived in perfect condition and though I prefer the look of cedar, the spruce model it is still a beautiful instrument and I much prefer the tone of the spruce. The strings still have some stretching to do but I have got it tuned and have tried it out. I could not be happier with the sound and tone of this guitar. It is exactly what I was looking for. The clear almost bell like tones of the treble are delightful. I currently have a steel string Taylor which I have been attempting to use to get into more classical playing but I could not get the sound I was looking for out of it. I believe this Cordoba will be my go to guitar for some time.

Cordoba Orchestra CE - Spruce Top

The guitar is everything I was expecting. A great sounding easy playing crossover. Due to health issues I was looking for something that was easier to play than my steel string acoustics and it is exactly that. Kenny Stratton was my sales rep and was very helpful in purchasing the Guitar. Sweetwater will have 1st shot at any purchases I make in the future.

Great Guitar

I'd been interested in this guitar for nearly two years but just couldn't find one in my nearby stores to try out. I didn't know if I wanted go for the more narrow neck width and radiused fingerboard on a nylon string, having owned a few with 2" nuts and flat fingerboards. I finally got the opportunity to compare this guitar alongside a similar Cordoba with the wider nut and flat fingerboard. After spending some good time playing both guitars, the choice was obvious to me...I decided to go with the Fusion Orchestra. It's just so much easier to play, especially for the styles I play (Jazz, Latin, and Fingerstyle). Sweetwater's customer service and 55-point check is second to none and my sales rep, Ryan Schmidt, is great to work with. I'm very happen with this guitar and look forward to many years playing it.I knocked off half a star because there was some substantial buzz on the bottom four strings. Looks like the saddle is just too low. Nothing I can't shim up.

Pleasantly Surprised

Have been playing the Orchestra CE for about a month now and find that I'm quite happy with it. The craftsmanship is quite good. The sound is good both unplugged and amplified. The Electronics offer a great deal of flexibility with regard to tone choices. I was also very happy with the Humi-Case that I ordered along with it. The pods seem to be effective and less risky than the typical leaky humidifiers that are designed to mount inside of an instrument.
