The Maple 12 belongs to Cordoba’s Fusion series, a line of high quality crossover or hybrid style nylon string guitars designed to play and feel like steel string acoustics.
Most notably, the necks are carved thinner than traditional Spanish-style “classical” guitars and have a nut width of 48mm (1 7/8”).
The slimmer dimensions and the radiused fingerboard combine to give the Fusion series the feel and playability that most steel string and electric guitar players are accustomed to.
Tonally the Fusion models have all the warmth, body, and resonance that traditional “classical” nylon string guitars are known for, and are built using traditional Spanish methods like domed soundboards and fan bracing patterns.
The bridge, binding, and headstock overlay are made of rosewood, and the rosette is hand inlaid using maple and rosewood rings. Additional features include a cutaway body and a 2 way adjustable truss rod.
The Maple is equipped with the Fishman Presys Blend pickup.
