Handmade in Spain, the Espana Series delivers authenticity for today’s players. These fine instruments exude a painstaking emphasis on detail that harkens back to the legendary workmanship found on the classical and flamenco guitars of 100 years ago.

The ultimate crossover nylon-string guitar is available for a limited time as a negra model with ziricote back and sides! Handmade in Spain, the 55FCE is the chosen guitar of the Gipsy Kings for its thinbody cutaway design, and slightly narrower nut width. The rich, smooth sound of ziricote pairs nicely with the 55FCE's solid European spruce top for a versatile tone and striking aesthetic. With its Fishman Prefix ProBlend onboard electronics with 3-band EQ and built-in microphone, the 55FCE Limited 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 Limited's thinbody design and unique wood combination make 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. Includes a custom HumiCase Thinbody Protege case.
