I had a special treat this week when local luthier Marcus Dominelli dropped off a guitar for me to try out. Such a warm bell-like tone, great balance, and amazing volume. I’m a long-time fan of Dominelli guitars and his latest double tops are particularly amazing because you get all the responsiveness, big tone, and volume of a double top but with a fairly tradition classical guitar sound. It’s a winner. This is not a review, just a fun look at the guitar. Keep in mind that my room is quite reflective and I’m no recording expert. It has normal tension carbons on it. Sounds lovely in person.

  • Double top – Cedar inner layer, Spruce outer
  • Ziricote Back
  • 640mm scale length
  • armrest (love it)
  • raised fingerboard (love it)

  1. Beautiful aesthetic and sounds wonderful. Surprised though to see that the nomex inner sandwich layer is so visible through the spruce outer layer.

  2. WOW ! beautiful guitar Bradford , bet it sounds fabulous. I just purchased an older ( 2006 ) Cordoba Custom artist series guitar from a used online dealer. Cost was 1199. it was in near pristine condition, looking to be hardly played. It is opening up nicely now a week later and lots of playing time. Love the sound of the Spruce top and flamed maple b&s ! This guitar is a keeper. Sounds almost as good as my expensive luthier made instrument. Too bad Cordoba discontinued this line back in 2008.
