This pickup equipped flamenco guitar joins the company's other two best sellers, carrying with it slight variations to the features and overall design of the first two GK Studio models.

This year's NAMM will be extra busy for Cordoba, especially since they have acquired the Guild brand and are going to display some of their products for the first time. Thankfully they are not using their recent expansion as an excuse to neglect the guitars that helped place them on the map, with a number of new releases scheduled to take place at the event.

With the Cordoba GK Studio Limited, the company is taking advantage of the NAMM event to unveil a different variation to their popular GK Studio line, featuring improved playability, built-in electronics and the use of the exotic tonewood Ziricote.

The GK Studio Limited features a solid European spruce top that is supported by Ziricote back and sides. Although not as popular as rosewood, Ziricote is actually quite similar in appearance, with the major difference being the olive green and gray highlights of the grain, compared to the reddish tones of rosewood.

According to the press release, "this darker colored wood makes the GK Studio Limited a “negra” flamenco model. “Negra” guitars have become more popular in recent years, and tend to offer a deeper, bassier tone in comparison with “blanca” guitars, which are built with lighter colored and brighter sounding woods like cypress and maple."

The flamenco-friendly Spanish cedar neck of the GK Studio Limited is slightly thinner than the other GK Studio models, which make the already comfortable neck even easier to play. The neck is topped by an ebony fretboard, with a nutwidth of 1.96" and Scale Length of 25.6". It has a total of 19 frets, and it meets the body at the 12 fret. Together with the guitar's modern cutaway, upper fret access has become easier.

Finally, giving the guitar its electronic voice is the Fishman Presys Blend, a powerful preamp and pickup system usually found on more expensive alternatives.

Pricing information and other details will soon be available at Cordoba Guitars.
