Cordoba Luthier Select Esteso Cedar Top Classical Guitar with Case

Catalog ID: GRCOLUES11_A

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. The Esteso is lightweight with an incredible tone. This Cordoba Esteso is built with a solid Canadian Cedar, paired with solid Pau Ferro back and sides. The Cordoba Esteso has a more petite body shape than many full size guitars, measuring 13 � 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.
