4.5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Cordoba is meeting the demands of the modern guitarist"
Overall: I am very pleased with the purchase of my GK Studio Cordoba nylon string guitar, and highly recommend it for playability and value. I am a steel string player who has switched to nylon string guitars in order to play more musical styles. I wanted to learn to read music by learning classical guitar and have now found a nylon string guitar a must for all my finger style playing. The problem has been finding a nylon string guitar that is playable and sounds good with a variety of musical styles. I have been searching endlessly for one that is smaller than your typical classical and has a sound that is brighter. I discovered that a Flamenco Negra guitar provides the bright sound I am looking for in addition to a thinner body. The GK Studio Negra is perfect for me. With the feature of a tress rod my repair man was able to get the action to 2mm at the 12th fret. Wow, great going Cordoba. A 50 mm nut width and the thinner neck depth adds playability without sacrificing being able to play classical music on this guitar. The final touch is the cutaway to reach the upper frets. The sound of this guitar is excellent for the ticket price. My only reserve is that this guitar is not made of all solid wood and has a whole in it for electronics. I am a purist and can hear the difference in a solid wood guitar and prefer to have passive amplification. Although this guitar sounds great and is perfect in all the functional aspects, I will be looking for another guitar. This GK Studio will be used for practice and "knocking around" while I save my money for a solid wood guitar with no electronics cut out. I highly recommend this guitar for the price range, sound, and playability. Even if I buy a higher quality solid wood guitar in the future, I will not get rid of my GK Studio.
Style of Music: I enjoy many genres of music. I play worship music for various informal groups at church. In addition I play a small amount of

Overall: Ive had my Gk studio Negra for about 2 weeks now and i have to say that I havent picked up any of my other guitars since. I just love how this little powerhouse sounds. Its is very light weight and super comfortable to play. The action when i got it needed a bit of a tweak but I was able to get it super low without buzz. The guitar looks absolutelly beautiful and plays like a dream. I havent plugged mine in yet but I look forward to doing so soon. I have however played one plugged in at my local music store and was blown away at how it sounded using the Fishman loudbox mini amp. You cant go wrong with the price and value of this instrument especially if you travel. The tuners are beautiful and keep the instrument in perffect tune. The onboard electronics are nice, like i said, i havent plugged mine in but the onboard tuner is great. If you are looking into getting a new classical/flamenco style guitar get this one...you wont be dissapointed.
Style of Music: mostly fingerstyle, some other styles depending on my mood.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
