Experience Top Of The Line Craftsmanship With The Cordoba Esteso CD Luthier Select Acoustic Nylon Guitar

The Cordoba Luthier Select Series represents the marriage of peak instrument design and fine craftsmanship. Handcrafted by a team of elite luthiers in small batches, the Luthier Select series guitars bring new life to the designs that shaped the modern nylon string guitar. For over 15 years, Cordoba has been perfecting the art of Nylon string instruments, working in conjunction with teams all around the globe to bring authentic nylon string tone with the playability and longevity that a modern musician demands. As Cordoba has grown in tandem with the quality of their manufacturing, it is with great pride and satisfaction that Cordoba pays homage to the greats in luthiery with the release of the Luthier Select series.

Domingo Esteso is considered one of the greatest Spanish luthiers of the 20th century, with a career that began in the 1890s, and continued through the 1930s. Created after extensive study of Domingo Esteso’s guitars, the Luthier Select Esteso mirrors the light weight and responsive volume produced by the Spanish luthier’s famous guitars. Available with a European Spruce or Canadian Cedar top, the delicately, hand carved spruce bracing works in conjunction with the premium quality top woods to recreate the immaculate, full tone synonymous with guitars built by Esteso himself. Solid Pau Ferro back and sides provide the tonal pallet of rosewood, but offer lighter weight and beautiful figure. Flamed Maple binding and a unique rosette with mother-of-pearl inlay, the kind of intricacy that was reserved for Esteso’s top of the line instruments, compliment the rich coloring of the Pau Ferro. The Estesto is finished using an ultra thin Polyurethane finish to protect the delicate instrument without impeding the vibration of the soundboard. Complete with an included Deluxe Humidified Archtop wood case, the Cordoba Esteso CD (Cedar Top) and Esteso SP (Spruce top) offer players a chance to enjoy the exemplary sound and feel of one of history's premier luthiers.
