New Guitar in the house!
Posted by: freeradical

I've been learning to play the classical guitar, and I've started to get somewhat decent at it, so I treated myself.

My new baby, a ceder Cordoba C12. My other guitar is an inexpensive Yamaha CG122MSH.

The Cordoba has a solid top, sides and back. It also has a (somewhat) raised fingerboard beyond the 12th fret. The fingerboard on the Yamaha is just below 6 mm above the soundboard at the 13th fret. This height is a little above 12 mm on the Cordoba. The Cordoba has lattice bracing.

Here's a link to luthier talking about bracing patterns on guitars and lutes,and so on. It's pretty interesting.

Guitar Leader!

I did have to look up raised fingerboard, makes a lot of sense for getting around the high registers of a big bodied guitar.

The C12 Cordoba, with Corinthian metal frets.


Seriously, that is a beauty.

To me, ignorant of all musical instruments, save a short acquaintance with the Tonette, that is the iconic look of a guitar.

An acoustic guitar, obviously, but even at a Van Halen concert, I hear the word 'guitar' and something nearly identical to the C12 comes to mind.

That second pic is a real beauty.

It's a good thing I don't have real money. I'd probably be one of those guys who collects cool stuff that I don't know how to use. Like a Steinway.

'Do you play?'
'No, I just love to look at beautiful man-made things.'

LOL, that's not even poseur level.

But congratulations on the guitar. Seriously.


Not for nothing, there should be a YouTube MFR musician channel, where all y'all who play an instrument, post some of your playing, original or cover.

Audio only, of course, to preserve the mystery.

Keep it somewhat anonymous, with comments turned off to avoid trolls.

Or maybe submit said files to someone willing to host a Drop Box repository.

Maybe there aren't enough of you to form an MFR cantina band, but it would nice to hear what you guys play at home, away from the computer.
