Córdoba and Disney•Pixar Partnership Revealed at D23

ANAHEIM, CA – Córdoba was proud to finally reveal an exciting new guitar product line made in partnership with Disney•Pixar for their November 2017 release, “Coco”. During a presentation called “Bringing the Music of Coco to Life” on Sunday, July 16 at the bi-annual D23 Expo, Córdoba CEO Tim Miklaucic was interviewed about this inspiring partnership and collaboration. He explained the interesting process of bringing an animated guitar to life and why the story of Coco had such impact on the Córdoba team. On first hearing about the project, Tim recalled thinking, “this is either going to be a hoax, or it’s going to be one of the best things that ever happened to the nylon string guitar. It turned out to be the latter.”

The complete Córdoba x Coco collection includes two miniature nylon string guitars (spruce/mahogany and all-mahogany) in a colorful POP package, a 7/8 size nylon string guitar, and a high-end guitar Replica from the film. Though ranging in price points, the collection is tied together by a beautifully intricate design that was inspired by the guitars and Mexican heritage featured throughout the film. The products were on display and seen for the first time by the public at the Expo. As the only licensed Coco product represented, it garnered lots of attention and hype for the film.

The Cordoba x Coco line will be available in the U.S. beginning October 2017 and the film opens in theaters in the U.S. on November 22, 2017.
