When one has a warranty issue, isn't it best to take it back to the dealer and let them deal with the maker? I ask because, fortunately, I have never had to do this.

Well, I received a prompt response from Tornovoz music today and it looks very favorable. I believe they are going to make it right. I will let you know more soon.

Default Cordoba guitars

Hi,

My experience with Cordoba guitars is limited to owning one and having played a few of their models. Back in 2007 I bought a 45FCE handmade in Spain which didn't before the purchase.
Cosmetically is really nice, but the neck feels rough possibly because of the frets. I cannot get used to it after all this time. It has an intonation problem that I couldn't resolve on my own despite trying a variety of strings from different manufacturers. I'm not sure if it's worth investing in a fret job without knowing if this will solve the problem.
It has a punchy tone useful for live situations. I'm not crazy about the Fishman electronics either as they make it sound very thin even with treble and presence off. IMO sounds better on a bigger PA vs small two speaker setup. I like it unplugged, but the intonation issue makes it impossible to record with.
Comparing to my old Takamine EC132SC it is not as nearly as playable having the same nut width.
A couple of days ago I played a GK model which I liked a lot despite the buzz happening on the bottom strings. It has a nice finish, and it's miles ahead in the playability department than the 45FCE I own. In Sam Ash they have only one GK and one C10. I didn't care about the C10 at all. The price is right for GK model, but this time I'd like to play before I pay. I'd like to find one with B-Band electronics though.
It felt like the GK might be a worthy replacement for the 45FCE. I wish SA or GC have more than one in stock though.

I wanted to give an update on my Cordoba issue. To make a long story short and sweet, they fixed my original guitar, which is what I wanted to do in the first place, replaced my saddle with bone and shipped it back to me in a better case, and although there was a bit of a communication gap, they did stand behind their product and made sure I was completely satisfied with the results; Kudos to Cordoba for sure. Thank you Cordoba for your attention to seeing that I was happy with the outcome and for providing the after sale attention. It just shows that a few might slip here and there, but they do stand behind their products.

Consider this case closed.
