Design Features

With its Fishman Prefix ProBlend onboard electronics and thinbody design, the 55FCE Negra is ready to combat feedback when the guitar is amplified at high volumes. Low action, little relief in the neck, and a two-way truss rod keep this guitar comfortable and easy to play. Other premium features include a Spanish cedar neck, ebony fingerboard, Indian rosewood binding and bridge, a clear flamenco-style tap plate, and Savarez Cristal Corum strings. Comes in a humidified Humicase Protege case.

*Please note: The 55FCE Negra Limited features exotic Macassar ebony, which varies greatly in appearance and grain pattern.*
