The Cordoba Rodriguez, featured in "Great Acoustics"

April 23, 2014


We were honored to be featured in Acoustic Guitar Magazine's "Great Acoustics" section in their 25th Anniverary issue! Great Acoustics is a recurring article that provides a biography of a guitar, exploring its history and profiling the lives of the people who have owned it. After visiting our Master Series NAMM display in January, the Senior Editors of Acoustic Guitar approached us about spotlighting Tim Miklaucic's 1973 Churchdoor Rodriguez, the guitar that inspired our Master Series Rodriguez model. As its name suggests, this guitar was made from a rosewood church door that had fallen from its rotted hinges in Granada, Spain. It was first owned by a flamenco singer, Naranjito de Triana, then by a private owner, and now Miklaucic. It has an incredibly powerful sound and the "strings have remarkable discovery," says Miklaucic. Click the images below to read the entire article and be sure to visit Acoustic Guitar to view the full issue.

The MusikMesse 2014 Report

March 21, 2014


This was our second year exhibiting at the MusikMesse show in Frankfurt, Germany. We brought 42 guitars and 20 ukuleles to the show and it was a great opportunity to meet with dealers, distributors, artists and guitar enthusiasts who were not able to make it to California for the NAMM show! When we go to events like this, we're reminded of how lucky we are to work in music - a universal language. We met so many people from all over the world, and even if we couldn't speak to some of the visitors, we could still communicate through the instruments.

Our USA-made Master Series models (including a Limited Edition Hauser with Granadillo back and sides) were front and center in addition to the new all-solid C10 Parlor, C9 Crossover and C12 Limited.

Our new Cordoba ukulele POP stand received a lot of accolades at the show! This sturdy metal stand can display 10 ukuleles of any size and was designed to fit the decor of any store.

Eugenio Polacchini and Matteo Minozzi of the Bruskers Guitar Duo travelled from Italy to play in our booth throughout the show! Matteo is playing a Fusion Orchestra CE Pro (Spruce) and Eugenio has an Iberia C7-CE (Cedar).

Many visitors stopped by our booth to check out and play the Master Series Hauser model since it is a replica of a 1937 guitar made by iconic German luthier, Hermann Hauser.

Press Release: Thinner Neck Profile Now Available on C9 & C10

February 28, 2014


Cordoba C9 & C10 Crossover


Due to the great success of Cordoba’s Luthier Series, an affordable line of all solid, concert level instruments, Cordoba is proud to the C9 Crossover and C10 Crossover. Cordoba’s C9 and C10 serve as the heart of the Luthier series; both are offered with the choice of a solid European spruce or solid Canadian cedar top, paired with either solid mahogany (C9) or solid Indian rosewood (C10) back and sides. The Crossover models feature a 48mm nut width, radiused fingerboard, and hand-carved mahogany neck with a thinner profile. The foundation of the Luthier Series rests upon building methods such as the Spanish Heel, hand-carved necks and braces, and domed soundboards which are built on a traditional solera. All models in the Luthier Series feature a mother-of-pearl hand-inlaid rosette inspired by a 1920s Domingo Esteso rosette, and include a humidified hardshell case.
