The Cordoba GK Studio, a Gipsy Kings signature model, thinner than a standard Spanish guitar, is an extremely comfortable guitar for any player. The tone is bright and snappy, the action is low across the fretboard, and the neck is slightly narrowed. A Fishman Presys Blend with 4-Band EQ and digital tuner pickup system gives the GK Studio a clear and natural tone when amplified. Comes with a Cordoba deluxe gig bag.

    Comments about Cordoba GK Studio Gipsy Kings Acoustic-Electric Nylon String Classical Guitar:

    The folks at Sam Ash in Buffalo Grove IL were most helpful. Thank you Rick and Doug for all the time you took helping me decide. I love my Cordoba GK Studio. I was looking for an inexpensive guitar to use outside and on the beach, but this may have become my favorite guitar for all uses. It has a lovely tone and is easy to play. The workmanship is quite nice and I will upgrade to a better case. I've only had this guitar for a week but I'm already in love with the playability and the sound. Haven't tried it on an amplifier yet. Try this one, I think you'll like it.

      Comments about Cordoba GK Studio Gipsy Kings Acoustic-Electric Nylon String Classical Guitar:

      The GK wasn't actually my first choice nor was it one that I had originally considered. I tried various models at the store and then I saw this beauty. The GK just felt right. It's incredibly comfortable and light. It weighs just as much as my husband's cavaquinho!(a uke sized Brazilian guitar) The GK studio's sound is gorgeous as well as the build. The sound is just as good as some of the high priced models that I tried out.

        Comments about Cordoba GK Studio Gipsy Kings Acoustic-Electric Nylon String Classical Guitar:

        My previous experience has been with Takimine and Horabe classical guitars. Cordoba makes a very fine guitar, excellent varnish, tone with nice tuning pegs. I bought two Cordobas yesterday this GK studio and a C7 (which is an awesome guitar in its own rite). The tone of the GK is incredible unplugged and plugged. Low action = speed for flamenco, thickness of fingerboard is slimmer than what I'm used to which makes it easier for chording (holding difficult chords) and I feel faster - I play faster according to my wife. NO buzzing - pure and clear tone. NO glue lines. Very well made and lightweight. When amp'd, it sounds great however the internal pickups also pickup the sounds when brushing against it - tweak your amp to filter that out and WOW! I can't put her down!

        Comments about Cordoba GK Studio Gipsy Kings Acoustic-Electric Nylon String Classical Guitar:

        I have a 1970 Martin D20 which I absolutely love to play but was looking for a more cost effective substitute. This guitar absolutely fits the bill. It plays just as well but is more fun because I'm a lot less worried about bumps and bruises. The thinner neck makes it closer to the crossover category.
