I have an Esteso model and it sure doesnít seem to suffer any for having truss rod. Iíve compared Yamaha and Cůrdoba models in the 300 to 500 US price range and both sound quite good. Cordobaís seem lightly built and quite resonant. Easily comparable to the Yamahas. Cordobaís thinline models sound a bit better to me than did the Yamaha NTX I owned. That guitar was great plugged in but was really heavily built and suffered when played purely acoustically.

All that to simply say I donít think a truss rod makes much of a tonal difference, all else being equal. With modern nylon string tensions seemingly on the increase I canít see where a truss rod would be a bad thing.
