Cordoba Master Series Esteso Classical Guitar Cedar Top

The Esteso is a lightweight, small body guitar with a full size scale length. Its elegant appointments perfectly complement the Esteso’s incredibly balanced voice. This guitar is handcrafted in Mexico. The Esteso is lightweight with an incredible tone. This Cordoba Esteso is built with a solid Canadian cedar top, paired with solid Palo Escrito back and sides. Palo Escrito is a variety of rosewood, renowned for its striking figure, great volume, and light weight. The Cordoba Esteso has a more petite body shape than many full size guitars, measuring 13 ¾ inches at the lower bout. It has a 650mm scale length, 52mm nut width, and a comfortable classical guitar neck profile. Additional features include a Spanish cedar neck topped with an African ebony fingerboard, flamed maple binding, intricate pearloid rosette, nitrocellulose finish, and Esteso’s 5-fan bracing pattern. Cordoba added a few modern refinements such as a truss rod, geared tuning machines, durable finish, and non-gut strings. The result is an instrument that exemplifies authentic Esteso designs, voicing, and feel, and captures a rare piece of guitar making history.
