Esteso is the most recent addition to Cordoba`s upscale Master Series` lineup. It is a nylon-stringed classical guitar (like the vast majority of Cordoba guitars) with a non-cutaway body, 25-3/5" scale, classical tuners and no electronics.
Esteso starts off with body made of solid palo escrito (back and sides) and solid spruce or cedar top (depends on the player`s choice). Bracing underneath the top is 1931 Esteso five-fan bracing. The neck on this gorgeous Cordoba is made of Spanish cedar and features the classical contour in the back. It is topped with a 19-fret ebony fingerboard. Flat-radiused fingerboard features a 2.04" bone nut, classical frets and side dot markers. Fixed rosewood bridge and Cordoba`s own Master series tuners complete the specs list.

I've had my Esteso for about six months. I have played it daily, with one short vacation break. I like it more and more each day. I tried Augustine Blues, but they tended to buzz. The Factory Savarez sound better, and provide a bit more tension (apparently). I will continue to try different strings, but for the moment, the factory choice is excellent. The back of the neck is a softer wood than I expected. In attempting to make some fingering choices, I managed to have my thumbnail put a couple of small dents in the wood. It is a little bit annoying.. but, I did it to myself. The coolest part of the guitar is the binding. The maple binding is excellent. Before choosing my cedar top Esteso. I played it in the same room as the Cordoba Rodriguez, Cordoba Torres, and the Esteso Spruce Top, as well as the Cordoba C12. Price was not a factor in my purchase decision. The Cedar Esteso was the best sounding to my ear ... that it was much less expensive than the Rodriguez was bonus.
