ANAHEIM, CA – Córdoba revealed an exciting new guitar product line made in collaboration with Disney•Pixar for their November 2017 release, Coco. During a presentation called “Bringing the Music of Coco to Life” on Sunday, July 16 at the bi-annual D23 Expo, Córdoba CEO Tim Miklaucic was interviewed about this inspiring collaboration and explained the the behind-the-scenes process of bringing an animated guitar to life and the impact Coco had on the Córdoba team. On first hearing about the project, Tim recalled thinking, “This is going to be one of the best things that ever happened to the nylon string guitar.”
The complete Coco x Córdoba collection includes two miniature nylon string guitars (spruce/mahogany and all-mahogany) in a colorful POP package, a 7/8 size nylon string guitar, and a high-end guitar Replica from the film, all ranging in price points. The collection is tied together by a beautifully intricate design that was inspired by the guitars and traditions of Mexico featured throughout the film. The products were on display and seen for the first time by the public at D23 Expo 2017.
The Coco x Cordoba line will be available in the U.S. beginning October 2017 and the film opens in theaters in the U.S. on November 22, 2017.
