The Cordoba Fusion 5 is the perfect guitar for the steel-string player who wants to give nylon strings a try. This acoustic-electric guitar features a slim "C"-shaped neck topped with a radiused pau ferro fingerboard for the familiar feel of your favorite steel-string workhorse. The mahogany body is topped with solid spruce to add articulation to the already warm and resonant tone. The body's deep cutaway offers unfettered access to the upper frets and notes that are hard to reach on other classical guitars. The Fusion 5 is also ready to gig when you are, thanks to the under-saddle pickup and onboard Fishman Sonitone Classical electronics. Warning: once you try the Cordoba Fusion 5 LE, you may never play your steel-string guitar again.
Ideal for steel-string players
Steel-string players commonly balk at the thought of playing a classical guitar with nylon strings, but the Cordoba Fusion 5 s anything but classical. It bucks tradition by offering a slim "C"-shaped neck and 16-inch-radiused fingerboard instead of an ultra-wide neck and flat fingerboard. Guitar players report that the smaller 1-7/8-inch nut width feels more like a standard steel string than a classical guitar. If you're used to playing a steel-string guitar, the Cordoba Fusion 5 will make you feel right at home.
Spruce over mahogany: a classic tonewood pairing
The Cordoba Fusion 5 is made with a classic tonewood pairing to bring out the best possible sound. The back and sides are made from mahogany to provide a profoundly resonant tonal foundation. The instrument designers at Cordoba added a solid spruce top for extra projection and note definition. Cordoba used premium tonewoods to ensure that the Fusion 5 punches well above its weight in sound quality.
Plug in with Fishman Sonitone electronics
When it comes time to hit the stage, you'll be glad to have the Cordoba Fusion 5 LE. It's equipped with an under-saddle piezo pickup and Fishman's Sonitone Classical electronics, delivering an authentic acoustic feel that shines in an ensemble or on its own. The volume and tone controls are mounted directly in the soundhole for easy access. Guitar players around the world trust their tone to Fishman, so you can be assured that your Cordoba Fusion 5 will sound incredible every time you plug it in.
