Cordoba Custom Artist (solista) Classical Nylon String Guitar For Sale

Cordoba Custom Artist (solista) Classical Nylon String Guitar

Up for sale is a Cordoba Custom Artist Maple Guitar. At the time of manufacture, this was the top of the Cordoba line later replaced by the Solista line. It retailed for over $2000.The story on this guitar - Guitar Salon International put this one up on as new old stock in 2010, the sticker says it was made in 2006. I was lucky enough to win it for around $1000. I was interested in trying out a maple backed spruce guitar to complement my cedar/rosewood. I have been trading off playing this guitar and my cedar guitar every day for over 3 years and it has traveled with me on weekly lessons. The bottom-line is that it has been played regularly and it shows - this is a used guitar, as reflected in my starting price. The guitar is quite loud with a wide body, and to my ear sounds like other spruce classical guitars. In other words, I am not hearing a noticeable tonal difference due to the maple back. In general I don't find spruce to be as warm sounding as cedar and would describe this guitar as a typical spruce, it is loud with a crisp, snappy sound. Loud on the bass side, crisp on the trebles.It is truly important to me that there are never any surprises in regards to a win of one my items on so I will detail two major cosmetic issues, beyond normal wear and tear:The biggest issue is that one time I was overly aggressive in cleaning the frets, and using steel wool, I seem to have taken some of the finish off on the fret board. It truly looks much worse in the photos under bright lights or flash in a close-up than in reality. Under normal room lighting, it is barely if at all noticeable, looking much like the coloring you see on many rosewood (non-ebony) fingerboards.There is also an obvious string divot right below string 3, visible if you look carefully in the 4th photo. That is by far the biggest ding, but if you hold the guitar to the light at an angle, you will find a fair number of top, back and edge dings.I have included some photos of the case. It too has seen some wear through the years, but has only cosmetic issues.I am selling because I need to reduce my collection in preparation for our two year plan to downsize to a smaller house or town home (sigh). I have 4 classicals and need to get down to two. In the next few weeks, I'll be putting up another classical, a 12 string, a gypsy guitar jazz, an Eastman dread and a Guild jumbo. My hope is that each one of them will find a new owner who is happy about getting a good deal on a great guitar. From musiciansfriend:

Maple back and sides create distinctive warm tone.

The Cordoba Custom Artist Maple is a classical guitar with a soundboard crafted from premium European spruce. Flamed maple back and sides gives this Cordoba guitar an extraordinarily warm and intimate character that is not easily found in instruments made of rosewood.

It will satisfy the discriminating needs of the studio musician, concert artist or serious conservatory player. The Cordoba Custom Artist series offers concert quality guitars at student guitar prices.
