Minicorda Suitcase-Size Electro Acoustic Nylon Guitar Released


The newly released Minicorda is a 19 inches travel (nylon) guitar that fits into a suitcase and sounds like a regular-size one. It's just one solid piece. It's always ready to be played. It's said to have a warm and clean sound.

How do they make it?

Minicorda founders created and patented a hollow-neck system that makes a 19-inch guitar resonate like a larger one, and also added great electronics (Fishman Preamp).

How is it built?

Mincorda's resonance body is made of high-quality polymers with great acoustic capabilities and mounted over a solid aluminum frame. It's manually finished and carefully calibrated by Diego Spina (co-founder and Luthier) and is 65% made with recycled materials.


How does it sound like?

Many say: that sound cannot come out from a "baguette-size" guitar. But it does. Minicorda sounds like a regular size nylon guitar and some early adopters said its sound is fat, warm, and with a long sustain. Please take a listen to the demos below.
