Modern steel-string appeal, traditional Spanish wisdom. Among the smallest of full-size steel-string body shapes, the Leona’s grand concert size strikes the perfect balance between ergonomic comfort and robust tonal clarity, creating one of the most versatile and pleasing steel strings out there. A direct descendant of Cordoba’s benchmark nylon string instruments, the Leona closely follows the brand’s formula of featherweight all-solid wood construction and modern design aesthetics, built with techniques and features established by the Spanish masters.
The L9-E is made by hand with a solid mahogany top braced with Cordoba’s unique X/Fan hybrid bracing pattern, paired with solid mahogany back and sides. The Leona’s neck-through style Spanish heel construction is extremely lightweight and incredibly stable, creating unparalleled responsiveness that can be sensed in both hands of the player. The L9-E features 12 frets to the body, a 1¾” nut width, and a 25.2” scale length for versatile playability for all styles. The L9-E has the quintessential Cordoba look complete with flamed maple binding and a mother-of-pearl rosette and headstock inlay.
Additional features include a mahogany neck, ebony fingerboard, bone nut and saddle, Grover tuning machines, active pickup system, and a Cordoba polyfoam case.
