Santa Monica, CA –An alliance of craft and tradition, decades in the making: The Cordoba Luthier Select Series. These exquisite nylon string guitars are hand-crafted by master luthiers in extremely limited batches. The series debuts two models, the Esteso and the Friederich, both crafted in the original technique of their namesake luthiers: Domingo Esteso of Spain and Daniel Friederich of France, two of the greatest makers of the twentieth century. The Esteso is available in a solid European Spruce or a Red Cedar top— both with a solid Pau Ferro back and maple sides lined by a striking, flamed maple binding. Esteso 5 fan bracing provides support and is true to the original design. The Friederich features an elegant and graceful body shape crafted with a solid red cedar top and solid rosewood back, sides and binding. Friederich 7 fan bracing balances the body for a powerful and rich tone.
