...On guitar No. 29, Classical

I had the privilege of playing this guitar before it was shipped out. It was absolutely fabulous. Loud, fast, fat ... everything a great classical should be and it had only been strung up for a few days. After playing it, I ordered one from Luis on the spot.

The guitar showed up… holy smokes man, fantastic job! I love it. Extremely clear with great separation and it sings.  ...the neck is extremely comfortable, making it super playable.

...On guitar No. 24, Classical

I have the pleasure of owning one of Luis' fine concert instruments. It is the gorgeous #24 spruce top classical with flame maple back and sides. The artisanship is absolutely superb and its looks are stunning. The projection and tone quality this instrument produces are amazing, almost sublime. I picked this guitar over five others which included Rozas, Tezanos, and a few other famous luthiers. Whether composing or performing it's truly a joy to play. I plan to add another of Luis' exquisite work to my collection.

With this beautiful instrument, the new, young luthier, Luis Fernandez de Cordoba, shows that he has arrived in the ranks of outstanding American luthiers.

My overall initial impressions of this instrument are very, very good. It’s well made, it’s light, the French polish is deeper, better done than my current guitar. And it plays really well too - the 650 scale is a better fit for me vs. 660 on my’s very obvious that the trebles are among the best I’ve ever heard…just fantastic. 

I had a big smile on my face after playing this guitar.  It sounds so smooth, and sweet even when it’s growling.  I can see why John Park said your guitars were the talk of the [Guild of American Luthiers] show, that you had “the gift” and that he’d be very happy to own one of your guitars.

In fact, my initial reaction when I first start playing it was wow, this what I imagine it to be like buying/playing a brand new Santos or Barbero…I think that’s the greatest compliment one can give to a flamenco guitar maker.

I posted about your guitar on Foro Flamenco here.
