Guitar World Staff Picks: Paul Riario’s Top 5 Acoustic Guitars of 2012
Guitar World Gear Editor Paul Riario chooses his top five new acoustic guitars of 2012.
03. Cordoba Fusion12 Maple
Cordoba is a brand known for making exquisite classical guitars, but with the Fusion 12 Maple ($960), you have a nylon-stringed guitar that has the feel of a steel string acoustic but combines old-world construction (like its traditional Spanish heel) and modern appointments like a thinner neck profile, narrower 1.89-inch nut-width (compared to classical 2.04-inch nut width), radiused fingerboard and C-shaped neck.
The Fusion 12 Maple sounds bright and lively, thanks to its flamed maple back and sides and solid European spruce top. It’s a great acoustic if you want to crossover to a lightweight nylon-stringed guitar and still have the same ease of playability of your favorite steel string.
