Cordoba GK Studio Limited Ziricote back and sides

August 3, 2017

-Update 8/17/17-   I just returned from Andy Culpepper’s shop up in Ithica NY he did a few set up adjustments to the GKSL and replaced the saddle so my action is at 2.6mm on bass and 2.5mm on treble.  The guitar feels good and is easy to play.  I also replaced the Savarez 500CJ strings with Daddario EJ45TT which I seem to like more.    The top picture is the before and second is the picture from Andy’s set up with Daddario EJ45TT strings.  I have done two gigs with the guitar and am very impressed. 

I recently returned a Yamaha SLG200NW Silent guitar due to tone issues live amplified. I needed a guitar for outdoor beach weddings, outdoor gigs in the sun and high humidity so I chose the Cordoba GK Studio Limited to replace the Yamaha. It has built in pick & mic the Fishman Presys Blend. Solid Spruce top and Lamented Ziricote back and side with a high gloss polyurethane finish. That will protect the guitar from the weather and sweet.

The GK Studio Limited offers a new spin on Cordoba’s ultimate gigging instrument. Based on the success of its sister models, the GK Studio Limited features a solid European spruce top and striking ziricote back and sides. Accented with olive green and gray highlights, ziricote provides a rich, smooth sound that fills a room. This nylon string guitar comes equipped with a soft cutaway and Fishman Presys Blend pickup. The GK Studio Limited is a flamenco guitar made for the stage, constructed with a slightly thinner body depth, neck, and nut width than a traditional Spanish guitar. The neck is designed to have little or no relief, offering low action for ease of comfort and quick playability.
For flamenco players, this model offers a bassier and more robust tone in contrast to the bright, snappy sound of ‘blanca’ flamenco guitars, but any guitarist looking for a new tone to add to the repertoire will feel right at home with the GK Studio Limited. With its comfortable body shape and unique tonewood combination, this model is the perfect choice for exploring the nuances in sound that can only be captured with nylon strings. Like every Cordoba guitar, this model also has a two-way truss rod built into the neck. Other premium features include a rosewood fingerboard and bridge, high gloss finish, clear flamenco-style tap plate, and Savarez Cristal Corum strings. The GK Studio Limited includes Cordoba’s deluxe gig bag.
