The left handed Cordoba 55FCE thin bodied acoustic guitar is the ideal nylon string acoustic for electric guitar players looking for the perfect nylon-string to add to their collection. The 55FCE features a thin body with a slim waist, a generous cutaway and a narrow neck that has an incredibly comfortable feel. With a European Spruce top, Spanish fanned bracing and Ziricote back and sides, the 55FCE has nice projection and mellow tone while played acoustically, while Fishman electronics makes it stage ready for many of today’s leading Flamenco players including Tonino Baliardo of the Gypsy Kings.
Most Classical nylon string acoustic guitars have necks over 2 inches wide at the nut, making them feel too wide and chunky to players who are used to electric guitars. The 55FCE has narrowed its Spanish Cedar neck to a slender 1.96“ giving it a feel that is much more like an electric, while the scale length of 25.6“ gives its Ebony fingerboard a very familiar and expressive feel!
The lefty 55FCE by Cordoba features the Fishman Prefix pro blend preamp system designed to take up 1/3 less space than other preamp systems, making it perfect for the 55FCE’s thin bodied design. The Prefix Pro Blend preamp blends the tone from both a microphone and undersaddle pickup, giving it a more natural acoustic tone when amplified. The 3 Band EQ allows you to fine tune your tone to your music, while a phase switch and notch filter allow you to control feedback when playing at high volume.
Equally impressive hardware appointments including a Rosewood bridge, bone nut and premium Cordoba tuning machines ensure that the lefty Cordoba 55FCE delivers reliably accurate intonation and rock solid tuning even when you take it on the road with you.

The left handed Cordoba 55FCE is a slim, lightweight and very comfortable to play, making it the ideal crossover guitar for electric guitar players looking for a Nylon String acoustic. If you are looking for the right guitar to add that nylon string sound to your musical repertoire, the lefty Cordoba 55FCE should be at the top of the list!
