Gearank Recommendation

The F7 Paco appeared on our recommended list for Classical & Nylon String Guitars from June 2019 until August 2020 when it was out-ranked by other guitars.

Overview

The Cordoba F7 Paco is an homage to classical guitar legend Paco de Lucia.

It features a thinner, flamenco style similar to the guitars that were used by its namesake in his lifetime.

To contrast the brighter tone with thinner bodied guitars, Cordoba opted to use warm sounding Indian Rosewood for the back and sides.

The result is a well balanced tone while being lighter than most guitars.

Modern appointments like a dual-action truss rod are noted by some as convenient for the touring musician as necks tend to shift depending on the temperature.

The Cordoba F7 Paco, with it's great combination of vintage looks and feel with modern playability and set up makes for a great intermediate guitar.

Although this was previously on our recommended list, we are now featuring more highly rated guitars in our guide to The Best Classical & Nylon String Guitars.
