SOLD: 2000 Cordoba Guitar plus relatively new GC generic hard shell case. $250 plus shipping. Guitar currently lives in Louisville KY. This would be a great guitar to take to the beach/outdoors, a guitar to travel to lessons or a guitar for a student. Typical Cordoba built (like a tank) and sound (good bass and trebles). This actually sounds a lot better than the newer Cordobas I have seen at GC. A few modifications made: better tuners (see below), bone saddle and nut, a permanent 7th fret marker (very small diameter) and a slight reduction in the bulk of the neck. A few years ago I took off about 1mm or thereabouts off the neck and re-did with polyurethane and not the poly-goop used by the factory. The neck is more comfortable and one's thumb moves easier up and down the neck. I was able to get the neck and most of the heel stained close to the original color. I would say the work was 95-98% close to what a factory would do. The only aesthetic issue is where the heel joins the body--I was not able to get a good color there. Had I stripped the entire guitar I could have easily resolved that. No structural issues at all there and with the rest of the neck.
Condition: Very good shape. No cracks, plenty of bone saddle left (current action is 4mm/3mm)
Back and Sides: Indian Rosewood.
Saddle and Nut: Bone
Tuners: Chinese "Rubners". These are nice tuners and a whole lot better than the stock ones.
Fingerboard: Ebony. Frets are level and in excellent shape.
Bridge and Head: Indian Rosewood.
Bracing: standard Cordoba fan
Sound: Good. Has good basses and trebles that seem evenly matched. I suspect carbon trebles would work well.
Viewing: Do-able although shipping costs back to me paid by person trying out guitar.
