The 12 Natural is our entry-level crossover guitar featuring a comfortable, slim steel-string style neck (48mm nut width) with radiused fingerboard. Choose from a solid Canadian cedar or European spruce top paired with mahogany back and sides. As the name suggests, the 12 Natural has 12 frets to the body, allowing the bridge to sit further back on the soundboard, where resonance is optimized for a large sound with long sustain. Thoughtful finishing touches such as a hand inlaid wooden rosette, 3 ply maple and ebony top purfling, and high gloss polyurethane finish makes this Fusion model both beautiful and practical. Plug in and play with the built in Fishman Presys preamp.

The Fusion Neck

The 12 Natural 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.
