THE INSTRUMENT'S FAMILY
Available in a full range of sizes, the Protege series guitars were primarily designed for beginning to intermediate guitarists who want a quality handmade instrument at an affordable price. Many more accomplished players, however, have also come to enjoy the quality, feel, and tone of these instruments.
A lightweight truss-rod (an unusual feature on nylon string guitars) allows for easy neck relief adjustments, and finish details like the hand-inlaid wood mosaic rosettes make these guitars look and feel much more expensive than they are.
Cordoba guitars represent a lifestyle that blends Bohemian creativity and individuality with a heritage of artistry and craftsmanship.
Offering an entire range of nylon-string guitars, the quality of Cordoba instruments has been recognized worldwide by artists from a variety of genres and musical backgrounds. Passion and tradition accompany every Cordoba guitar; from the craftsman who chooses the soundboard to the musician playing the finished instrument.
