The Orchestra Pro 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. Although the Orchestra Pro is full-bodied, its shape is slightly altered from that of a traditional nylon string guitar, accented by a light mahogany binding. Like the other Fusion models, the Orchestra Pro’s neck is carved thinner than traditional Spanish-style “classical” guitars, and has a nut width of 48mm or 1 7/8”. These slimmer dimensions combined with a radiused fingerboard give the Fusion series guitars 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, BBand, 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 Pro is built with the classic combination of a solid European spruce or Canadian cedar top and solid Indian rosewood back and sides. The neck has 12 frets to the body and an ebony fingerboard. The 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 Pro is the perfect blend of traditional materials with modern aesthetic touches. A Cordoba polyfoam case is included as well.
The Orchestra Pro is equipped with a BBand A2.2 pickup (mounted in the sound hole), which has a dual input/single output onboard preamp, and HZZLess for low noise/high output. The A2.2 includes the XOM technique with mix control to bring the best of the UST (under saddle transducer) and AST characters together, resulting in a sound that is true to the Fusion Orchestra Pro’s unique voice. This is the perfect guitar for the serious crossover player who is recording and playing live often.
