Meet the Maple, a beautiful crossover guitar that features a solid European spruce top and flamed maple back and sides for a bright, snappy tone and sweetly pronounced high end. Other than its strikingly beautiful back, the 12/14 Maple's main feature is its slim steel-string feeling neck (48mm nut width) and 16" radius fingerboard. Available with 12 or 14 frets to the body, the Maple is ready for the stage with its Fishman Presys Blend preamp.

The Fusion Series

Design Features

The 12 Maple belongs to Córdoba’s Fusion series, a line of high quality crossover/hybrid nylon string guitars designed to play and feel like steel string acoustics. 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 prefer. 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.

All Fusion guitars feature Savarez Corum Alliance strings that offer the higher tension feel that most crossover players want.

12 vs 14 Frets

The 12 fret model more closely resembles a traditional classical guitar, and allows the bridge to sit a bit further back on the soundboard, where resonance is optimized for a large sound with long sustain. The 14 fret model has a more familiar upper register for steel string players. The bridge is shifted slightly forward from the center of the soundboard, increasing ease of playability for the steel string or electric player. More frets are exposed, creating an easier territory for soloing.
