Cordoba 55FCE Thinbody Negra Ziricote
The 55FCE Negra is ultimate crossover flamenco nylon-string guitar with ziricote back and sides. Handmade in Spain , the 55FCE is the chosen guitar of the Gipsy Kings for its thinbody cutaway design, and slightly narrower nut width. The rich, smooth sound of ziricote pairs nicely with the 55FCE’s solid European spruce top for a versatile tone and striking aesthetic. With its Fishman Prefix ProBlend onboard electronics with 3-band EQ and built-in microphone, the 55FCE Negra is stage-ready, and its thinbody design helps reduce feedback when the guitar is amplified at high volumes. With low action and little relief in the neck, this guitar offers substantial comfort and ease of playability.
The 55FCE Negra's thinbody design and unique wood combination make it the perfect choice for exploring the nuances in sound that can only be captured with nylon strings – and bringing them to the stage. Like every Cordoba guitar, this model also has a two-way truss rod built into the neck. Other premium features include a Spanish cedar neck, ebony fingerboard, Indian rosewood binding and bridge, a clear flamenco-style tap plate, and Savarez Cristal Corum strings. Includes a custom HumiCase Thinbody Protégé case.
