The 14 Jet belongs to Cordoba's Fusion series, a line of high quality crossover or hybrid style nylon string guitars designed to play and feel like steel string acoustics. Most notably, the 14 Jet's neck is carved thinner than traditional Spanish-style 'classical' guitars and it has a nut width of 48mm (1-7/8'). The slimmer dimensions combined with a radiused fingerboard give the Fusion 14 Jet the feel and playability that most steel string and electric guitar players are used to. Tonally the Fusion 14 Jet has all the warmth, body, and resonance that traditional 'classical' nylon string guitars are known for, and are built using traditional Spanish guitar methods like domed soundboards and fan bracing patterns.
The Cordoba 14 Jet is built with a solid Canadian cedar top and Indian rosewood back and sides. It gets its name from its 'jet' black finish, a high gloss polyurethane black that goes beautifully with the guitar's Mother-of-Pearl appointments on the headstock and rosette. The 14 Jet has a more familiar upper register for steel string players. The bridge is shifted slightly forward from the center of the soundboard, increasing ease of playability for the steel string or electric player. More frets are exposed, creating an easier territory for soloing. It also comes equipped with the Fishman Presys pickup with a built-in tuner. The fingerboard and bridge are rosewood, neck has 14 frets to the body, and comes with a deluxe Cordoba gig bag.
