Rating and Reviews: Cordoba GK Studio Negra

Ole! This Cordoba guitar's European spruce top projects with authority, while its Indian rosewood back and sides articulate lows for fiery flamenco fury.

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.

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.

Overall: I received my of my GK Studio Cordoba nylon string guitar today and I have to say this guitar is just outstanding. It stand up to any custom made guitar from any Luther costing $3,000 to $5,000. I never expected that such a affordable guitar could sound so great. The craftsmanship together with the cosmetic look is just fabulous. I highly recommend the of my GK Studio Cordoba nylon string guitar. I've been playing for over 55 years and have seen, played, and owned high end guitars and this one is just as high end. The bass response and the highs are right on the button. I am a very particular as far as my guitars. They must sound outstanding and also look great as far as presentation. Over all this one is will be right with me anytime I go out and do my gigs and also play in our worship team. Five stars.

Overall: Recently I purchased a Cordoba GK Studio series guitar through zZounds. this was my first purchase with them, and I purchased it through their 4-payment plan program. When I received the guitar, I noticed that the guitar had two dents in the wood work, one on each side of the sound hole. I later discovered a short in the electrical wiring within the guitar plug. I notified zZounds of the discrepancies, and without any hesitation they sent me a free UPS return label and assured me that as soon as the item was returned to UPS and scanned, they would send me a replacement. zZounds lived up to their word. Within days, I received the replacement guitar that was in perfect condition. I couldn't be happier with their customer service. I have to further give them great thanks for their zero interest payment program. As a working musician unable to get credit anywhere, zZounds steps up to the plate and offered me the guitar I've been wanting for years but couldn't afford. Their "Pay as you Play" program is hassle free, didn't rely on credit score, and I was accepted by zZounds where every other mega-musician store turned me down. For this, I am now a loyal fan of zZounds and will be a returning customer soon, making them my #1 place to supply my music business.
