Intended to put the bright, percussive sound of Flamenco at your fingertips in an all-solid instrument, the Luthier Series F10 from Cordoba is a nylon-string classical with a solid European spruce top and solid Cedar back and sides. The mahogany neck, set to the body in a Spanish heel joint, provides a 25.6” scale, an ebony fingerboard, and 19 frets. The 4mm truss rod is accessible for ensuring that the neck stays straight, and a bone nut has been employed to bolster sustain and resonance on open strings.
This guitar offers side-position inlays at the fifth, seventh, and ninth fret. Other aesthetics abound, such as 6-ply colored-wood top purfling, 3-ply maple and ebony back-and-side purfling, as well as Indian rosewood binding. An Indian rosewood bridge affixes strings to the body. At the headstock, Cordoba Premium Gold Tuning Machines with black, ebony-style buttons have been employed. These tuning machines sport a gear ratio of 14:1 for precise tuning, giving you a string-roller spacing of 35mm.
Since this instrument is primarily intended for Flamenco, a clear tap plate has been pre-installed to prevent you from damaging the top in particularly percussive moments of expression. A Cordoba Polyfoam Case is included with the instrument to help protect your instrument when it’s not in use.
