The Orchestra CE belongs to Cordoba's Fusion series, a line of high-quality crossover or hybrid style nylon-string guitars designed to play and feel like steel-string acoustics. Most notably, the necks are carved thinner than traditional Spanish-style "classical" guitars and have a nut width of 48mm or 1 7/8". With the option of 12 or 14 frets to the body on most models, these slimmer dimensions combined with a radiused fingerboard give the Fusion series the feel and playability that most steel string and electric guitar players are used to. Tonally the Fusion series models have all the warmth, body, and resonance that traditional "classical" nylon string guitars are known for, and are built using traditional Spanish guitar methods like domed soundboards and fan bracing patterns in the design.

Additional features include cutaway and non cutaway body styles, Fishman or BBand pickups, 2 way adjustable truss rods, and Savarez Corum Alliance strings that offer the higher tension feel that most crossover players are looking for. Cordoba's Fusion series was first to effectively merge the feel of a steel string with the tone of a "classical" guitar, and with a variety of wood options and finishes is the most comprehensive line of crossover style nylon string hybrids on the market. The Orchestra CE is built with the classic combination of a solid European spruce or Canadian cedar top and Indian rosewood back and sides. The neck has 12 frets to the body and an ebony fingerboard. The read more bridge and headstock overlay are made of rosewood, and the rosette is hand inlaid using maple and rosewood rings. With mahogany binding and a high gloss PU finish, the Orchestra CE is the perfect blend of traditional materials with modern aesthetic touches. It comes equipped with the Fishman Presys Blend pickup.

I am blown away with the sound from this little guitar. It is loud! I read that the 12 fret fusion models sounded better acoustically than the 14 fret models. I played a 14 fret rose and several of the gk series a few weeks ago but none of them sounded this good. The neck is so nice it fells like it was made for my hand with easy access to the 19th fret. Action was a tad high for my taste but the neck was dead straight and no buzzing or dead spots anywhere. Frets are level and smooth on the edges. The wood on mine is beautiful. Nice book-matched spruce and straight grained rosewood accented with mahogany purfling and a flawless finish make for a visually beautiful guitar. But the best part is the tone. I should have tried a cedar top too but this spruce top is really amazing sounding. This baby stacks up to any nylon string that I have played at a fraction of the cost and the most comfortable neck I have ever wrapped my hand around. The pickups sound awesome. I don't know if I got lucky or they all sound this good . I have to drive a very long way to get to a decent guitar store so I'd rather try it out first but you cant go wrong with a 30 day return policy and pay as you play. I didn't think my search would be over so quick but I'm glad it is. Thanks zzounds!
