Cordoba 55FCE Negra overview

  • 1Description

Designed for to elicit the tones necessary for Flamenco music, Cordoba’s España Series 55FCE Negra is a hybrid classical/electric guitar sporting a single-cutaway thinbody design and a nut-width narrower than standard classical models. These features promote playability, especially across high frets.

Complementing its solid European spruce top, the 55FCE boasts Ziricote back and sides, which, in addition to their beautiful, chocolate-marble aesthetic, lend a clear and rich tone with much in the way of overtones. An Indian rosewood bridge anchors strings to the body, and throughout the instrument you’ll find many flourishes pleasing to the eye, including Indian rosewood binding, an inlaid-wood mosaic rosette, and 4-ply purfling.

A Spanish cedar neck provides a 25.6” scale, an ebony fingerboard, and 19 frets. To ensure your neck stays straight, the neck’s 4mm truss rod has been made easily accessible. A bone nut is employed to bolster sustain and resonance on open strings. At the headstock, you’ll find Cordoba Premium Gold Tuning Machines with black, ebony-style buttons. These machines sport a gear ratio of 14:1 for precise tuning, giving you a string-roller spacing of 35mm.

For electronics, this instrument is outfitted with a Fishman Prefix Pro Blend preamp system, an undersaddle piezo pickup, and an internal microphone. Controls are provided for bass, middle, and treble, as are a notch filter for eliminating feedback, a phase switch, frequency and contour knobs, and a blend control to balance the internal microphone with the pickup. 

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 HumiCase Protégé humidified wood case—specifically designed for thinbody instruments—is included with the instrument, ensuring your instrument will stay protected from harsh interior conditions when not in use.
