Thoughts on Cordoba Steel Strings

Post by Gilded Strings » Tue May 14, 2019 2:23 am

I played the Cordoba D10 and D11 at the local guitar store. I didn't realise they made steel strings. At the price range I felt it played better than the other steel strings at similar prices. Apparently they use classical guitar construction for their builds. They are also quite light. The bass response was fuller and warmer than the other steel strings I played. I was playing mostly classical style and a few open chords to get the feel of the body resonance. I also heard they are going to discontinue the steel string line.

Anyone had any experience with the Cordoba steel strings?

Cheers,

How about I ask has anyone here bought a steel string guitar and what brand did you buy?

I recently bought a 12 string Alverez AD60-12. Never had a 12 string before. Love the tone and the jangly sound.
It is hard on the left had to maintain the pressure to get all the octave strings to sound. When you pick up the classical after playing the 12 string it feels so soft under the fingers.
