The GK Pro is the ultimate gigging instrument for the serious musician. Built with a solid European spruce top and solid cypress back and sides, this nylon string guitar comes equipped with a soft cutaway and Fishman PreFix ProBlend pickup. The GK Pro is a flamenco guitar made for the stage, constructed with a slightly thinner body depth, neck, and nut width than a traditional Spanish guitar. The neck is designed to have little or no relief, offering low action for ease of comfort and quick playability.
For flamenco players, this model is the quintessential flamenco guitar with its bright, snappy tone designed to cut through the sound of an accompanying dancer. However, any guitarist looking for a new tone to add to the repertoire will feel right at home with the GK Pro. With its comfortable body shape and all solid spruce/cypress wood combination, this model is the perfect choice for exploring the nuances in sound that can only be captured with nylon strings. Aesthetic touches like the flamed maple headstock veneer complete with Cordoba' arches icon, and the mother-of-pearl weave rosette inspired by a 1920' Domingo Esteso guitar add a touch of elegance to this powerhouse.
Like every guitar in the Luthier series, the GK Pro is built with Spanish heel construction, where the top of the guitar is attached to the neck, the sides are added next, and the guitar' body is sealed by the installation of the back. It also has a two-way truss rod built into the neck. Other features include an ebony fingerboard, rosewood bridge, high gloss finish, and premium Savarez Cristal Corum strings. The GK Pro includes Cordoba' humidified hardshell case.

This might be the best guitar purchase I have ever made - in a lifetime of purchasing arch tops, classicals, acoustic steel strings, and gypsy guitars. If you are an improvising finger style player and enjoy playing on nylon, this flamenco design will solve many problems. First, it sounds great, well balanced throughout the tonal range. Amazing bass response for such a small-bodied instrument. Flamenco guitars play more easily than classicals, and that fact suits me esp. as I'm primarily a jazz player. Also, the Fishman pickup is great, and even came to me with a 9v battery already installed. The very high quality hard case is black with a slightly bumpy texture to it, so it will not display scuffs or cuts. I cannot believe that Cordoba could offer this guitar at this quality for around $1300. I would especially recommend this guitar for younger people or women who might enjoy this small-bodied size guitar because it's so much easier to play. Kudos, also, to the staff of Custom Guitars Friend who enabled me to exchange a different and unsatisfying classical guitar for this gem, under complicated extenuating circumstances.
