NAMM 2016: Cordoba Guitars Launches All Solid Leona Series

(PRESS RELEASE): Cordoba Guitars continues to ride the small body guitar trend with the new L9-E & L10-E.

Cordoba Guitars continues to push the envelope with the release of the all new Leona Series, featuring two models unlike anything else Cordoba has ever offered. The Leona L9-E and L10-E are Spanish-inspired steel string parlor guitars, targeting the player looking for the feel, comfort, and ease of playability that a slightly smaller instrument provides. The L9-E features solid mahogany top, back, and sides, while the L-10E features a solid Sitka spruce top and solid Indian rosewood back sides. With their 00 body size, the Leona models have the quintessential Cordoba look, complete with colored wood purflings, mother-of-pearl rosettes and fret markers, and Cordoba’s arches logo inlaid in on their slotted headstocks. The L9-E and L-10E feature 12 frets to the body, a 1¾” nut width, and a 24.2” scale length that complements its body shape. Cordoba uses its expertise with Spanish heel neck construction, along with a light hybrid fan/X-bracing pattern, to make the Leonas incredibly lightweight and responsive steel string guitars.

Both models feature mahogany necks, ebony fingerboards, bone nuts and saddles, flamed maple bindings, Cordoba active piezo pickups, Grover tuning machines, and include a Cordoba polyfoam case.
