One of Cordoba’s most popular acoustic-electric models, the 55FCE is the chosen guitar of the Gipsy Kings for its thinbody cutaway design, and slightly narrower nut width. Handmade in Spain with a solid European spruce top and flamed maple back and sides, this flamenco guitar has a bright, snappy tone and modern aesthetic. With its Fishman Prefix ProBlend onboard electronics with 3-band EQ and built-in microphone, the 55FCE 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’s thinbody design makes 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. The 55FCE features a high gloss polyurethane Natural finish, and includes a custom HumiCase Thinbody Protégé case.
