Steel-string acoustic players looking to experiment with a nylon-string guitar need to look no further than the Córdoba Fusion 5 Jet—a traditional nylon-string with hybrid steel-string features.
One of the most appealing features is the smaller C-shaped neck, which adds more comfort and playability (great for those of us with smaller hands). The cutaway grants players easy access to the higher register. Unlike many more traditional nylon-string models, side dot markers were added to the fretboard of the Fusion 5 Jet to provide players with simple location markers.
Constructed of a solid spruce top with mahogany body and sides and a mahogany neck with a pau ferro fretboard, this lightweight guitar was comfortable to play, producing pleasing tones in the midrange. For electronics, Córdoba equipped this guitar with the Fishman Sonitone Pickup System that allows this soft instrument to be heard in a live setting. The model we reviewed was the Jet Black finish, which was beautiful, but the Fusion 5 Jet also comes in Sonata Burst and Gloss Natural finishes.
The price point of the Fusion 5 Jet makes this a great guitar for beginners or a must-have nylon-string guitar for musicians looking to add the look and feel of a classical guitar without busting the budget.
