Cordoba GK Studio Negra Electro Classical
The Cordoba GK Studio Negra features similar features to the GK Studio but with the addition of Indian rosewood back and sides, giving it a bassier response for a real thumping sound, which is great for Flamenco players. The onboard Fishman Presys system lets you plug in to take your GK Studio Negra to the stage.

No blemishes, sounds great, easy to play.
This guitar is very good indeed - easy to play and sounds darn good - both plugged and unplugged. It's a good way to add that lovely, warm, dynamic nylon string sound to the palette. And the included gig bag is one of the best I've ever seen - a real bonus. Altogether, decent value for money. I would give it 5 stars had it not been for the disappointing 'out of the box' set up : the electrics were dead (fixed by fitting a new battery), the action was pretty high (fixed by adjusting the truss rod with the supplied allen key), and the frets are a bit rough (time to do a bit of careful sanding...……). As long as you're prepared for this, go for it !
