Cedar soundboard, Indian rosewood back and sides, Ebony fingerboard, 650 string length, $4500.
This is the second instrument that we have received from luthier Luis Fernandez de Cordoba. Very much like the first one, this guitar's warmth and richness in the lower and middle registers are complemented by refined trebles. The attention to detail and straightforward design show the influences of the Granada school. With traditional Torres bracing, this guitar includes a western red cedar soundboard, beautiful Indian Rosewood back and sides and Alaskan yellow cedar back braces and lining. The soundboard is French polished as are the back and sides. The insides are finished with a light shellac. This is a beautiful instrument at a very reasonable price.
