    I just got a great deal on a Salvador Cortez classical . It has a solid top and a pickup. Ive been playing the few Bossa tunes I know for the last hour or two

    Congrats! :D

    I'm not familiar with this guitar. I can't tell for certain from the pic, but it looks like the neck width is pretty much standard. Some brands/models of classical/nylon stringed guitars with electronics and a cutaway have slightly slimmer necks and body depths. It looks like a medallion or something on the treble side of the bridge. Is that something to do with the pickup you mentioned?

    The neck is standard classical width. There is a decal on the bridge which I hadnt removed, as I took the photo when I got home from the shop. Im not a classical player so i got a class on correct right hand technique from an old friend and band mate who now performs professionally around Europe.

    It cost the equivalent of $700 and he thought it was very good for the money...it was when he played it anyway!

    Its made in Spain, with a solid cedar top and a fishman pickup

    Ill use it on jazz gigs for bossa tunes
