The Cordoba 55FCE Negra really does deserve its place at the top of the range; with superior sound and build quality there's no comparison to the tones this nylon-string guitar can produce whether you are practicing at home, or plugged in on stage. For these reasons the 55FCE is the chosen guitar of the Gipsy Kings, its thinbody cutaway design and narrower nut width resulting in the perfect classical crossover.

A flamenco-style tap plate, alongside a Spanish Cedar neck, Ebony fingerboard, Indian Rosewood binding and bridge and Savarez Cristal Corum strings, offers a real premium look and feel to the instrument, and a two-way truss rod brings stability and sturdiness to the Cordoba Espana 55FCE Negra. The Fishman Prefix Problend electronics offer all the versatility you need with EQ and volume controls, pickup/mic. blend control and a feedback-fighting notch filter and phase switch. On top of all this the Fishman preamp features a revolutionary pivot design for instant 9-volt battery access and ease of use.
