Get Vibrant Tonality, Volume And Projection With The Cordoba Esteso All Solid Cedar/Palo Escrito Nylon String Acoustic Guitar
The Cordoba Esteso is a light weight, small-bodied guitar with a full size scale length, based on the designs from the incomparable Domingo Esteso, one of the most skilled flamenco guitar makers of the 20th century. It is built with a solid Canadian cedar top, paired with solid Palo Escrito back and sides. Palo escrito is a variety of rosewood, renowned for its striking figure, loud volume, and light weight.
WHERE CHARACTER COUNTS
Domingo Esteso is considered one of the greatest Spanish luthiers of the 20th century, with a career that began in the 1890s, and continued through the 1930s. He is responsible for establishing one of the most famous workshops in Madrid, which was later inherited by his nephews. Esteso’s instruments are characterized by their physical lightness, yet with great volume and projection.
Designing the Cordoba Esteso was begun by examining two authentic 1931 Esteso models from the inside out. With a goal of understanding the essence of this iconic guitar, Cordoba studied wood thickness, bracing designs, material choices, wood grains, and vibration patterns. The combination of their luthiers’ expert hands, trained eyes, and intuitive ears led to an examination that was part science and part feel. After listening to and playing these guitars for hours on end, they fully analyzed the balance, resonance and response of the Rodriguez model to fully inform their design choices.
The Cordoba Esteso has a more petite body shape than many full size guitars, measuring 13 ¾” at the lower bout. It has a 650mm scale length, 52mm nut width, and a comfortable classical guitar neck profile.
