The all-solid C-12 is one of Cordoba's most interesting and modern guitars.
Design elements like the delicately lattice-braced top provide rich tones with a lively presence and exceptional volume. The raised fingerboard makes for easy playability when accessing upper frets. Both of these are features usually found only on much more expensive guitars.
Available with either a solid Canadian Cedar or European Spruce top with Indian Rosewood back and sides, the handmade C-12 features the vintage elegance of a hand-inlaid mother-of-pearl rosette inspired by a 1920s Domingo Esteso design, and a beautiful flamed maple wedge on its solid Indian rosewood back.
Other features like premier black and gold tuning machines, an ebony fingerboard, an adjustable truss rod, and a hardshell Cordoba humidified archtop case make the C-12 a treasure to last a lifetime.
