Rating and Reviews: Cordoba GK Studio Guitar

The GK Studio has a slightly deeper body than the 55FCE, yet thinner than a standard Spanish guitar.

Sound: This is the first time, ever, that I was able to take a NEW guitar to rehearsal and then, play a concert with it the next day, without the need of any adjustments. Even my custom made instruments required a day at the Luthier's shop just to adjust the action for my playing and strings - with the GK Studio I had to do nothing (other than replacing the strings) - with a minimal eq the guitar sounded just beautiful - I am very pleased with its amplified sound and since my endorsement with another pickup system is expired I have been searching for a new one that would sound better and be more reliable. I have now found it. the GK is perfect in every way. I don't know how you guys do it but, I am pleased that I have tried it - perfect timing too for my upcoming projects.

Overall: For years I have been playing a simple, low end Yamaha flamenco guitar due to... well, what can I say, I'm a working musician. THANKS to Zzound.com and Cordoba Guitars, I was finally able to afford this GK Studio Negra guitar, and let me say that after playing it, it is WORTH EVERY DOLLAR that it is priced at. To begin with, it arrived at my home double boxed, and further more padded in the inner box to ensure the safest shipping possible. To my surprise, unlike other guitars it came with its very own Cordoba soft case that wasn't even mentioned in the sale info. (BONUS!!!). The sound from the guitar resonates much longer than other guitars I've tested, and the tone from the guitar is much warmer than the others as well. Right out of the box, I was able to use the onboard tuner which is one less thing I have to have on stage. The action is absolutely amazing on this guitar, and even better, you can adjust the tension rod to your liking right between the strings in just a few seconds. The onboard adjustments truly solve having to hover around the soundboard. The three band EQ is standard, and it has additional adjustments to balance the pickups and inboard mic, along with adjustment to eliminate low end feedback. The only minor drawback is not having pegs for a guitar strap on it, but that is an easy fix, as I was planning to get a custom strap for it anyhow. As a fan of the Gipsy Kings, who have reigned for over 30 years with the Spanish guitars, Cordoba truly honored their name with this Gipsy King series Studio guitar. And I myself, and now proud to be both an owner and performer with this Cordoba GK Studio guitar.

Overall: I just got me this guitar as a Fathers Day gift. I spent time, as I say test driving it and others. One of the things I look for is when the guitar lets me take it and it becomes one with me. Anywhere my fingers go the soud stay smooth and clear. Action all the way is tremendous and rewarding. By that I am rewarded with the sounds I get so clear I smile. Took hours matching it against a Taylor which I am favorable to. I tried so hard to like the Taylor, Yamaha, and others, but I still came back to the Cordoba. It was what I was seeking to get the soud I wanted. I paly it more now than my steal string guitars. Good stuff!!! "{)

Overall: Bought this guitar new from local authorized dealer. Sounded good in the store and liked the spruce top that produced a nice sound. Got it home and sat down to really try it out. It was then that I saw the guitar had a crack that was about 3/4 of an inch or so running through width of the soundboard at the lower curve of the cut out through the width of the wood. Looked like a chunk of the soundboard could come off.Worse is that there was a smear of what looks like grey Elmer's wood filler on the underside of soundboard where the crack was repaired (factory rework??) at the intersection of the neck and the cut out. This was not a B grade guitar that I purchased, but Cordoba Quality Control is not there.I don't know whether Cordoba contracts out manufacturing or if they buy pre-cut tops or cut their own. Calls into question the quality of material they use, and how something defective, reworked gets to an end-user. Amateur player who has a couple of steel stringed acoustics, Yamaha classical that was redone with new bone nut and bridge. Studying classical as a school elective.
