The Cordoba C9 Parlor is ideal for the player looking for the feel, comfort, and ease of playability that a smaller instrument provides, while retaining the sweet, warm tone created by all-solid wood construction. Built with a solid Canadian cedar top with solid mahogany back and sides, the C9 Parlor features a 7/8 body size, 50mm nut width, and the fan bracing pattern found on most Cordoba guitars. This bracing pattern gives the center of the soundboard more surface area to vibrate and respond to the tension of the strings. A more responsive soundboard makes the guitar louder, and provides better tone.

Like every guitar in the Luthier series, the C9 Parlor is built with Spanish heel construction, where the top of the guitar is attached to the neck, the sides are added next, and the guitar's body is sealed by the installation of the back. This construction technique allows the entire instrument to vibrate as one unified piece.

Aesthetic touches like the mother-of-pearl weave rosette inspired by a 1920's Domingo Esteso guitar add a touch of vintage elegance to this best-seller. Other premium features include a rosewood fingerboard, rosewood bridge, high gloss finish, and Savarez Cristal Corum strings. The C9 Parlor includes Cordoba's lightweight polyfoam case.

*With the introduction of the C10 Parlor, Cordoba decided to rename the model previously titled "C9 Dolce" to "C9 Parlor." Cordoba felt the word "Parlor" was a better, more universal descriptor of a small body instrument. No features of the guitar were changed aside from the name.

Things You Will Get:

  • Classical Guitar
  • Polyfoam Case

Comments about Cordoba C9 Parlor 7/8 Size Nylon String Classical Acoustic Guitar:

I am a music teacher and flutist. I always loved the sound of a classical guitar so last year I purchased a full size Cordoba C9 CD/MH and started taking lessons. I loved the sound and the action of the full sized C9, but it was a little too large for me. I just bought the C9 Dolce as a replacement and It's just the right size. The slightly shorter and narrower neck makes it easier to play in terms of finger stretch and arm reach. Also, the C9 now comes with Savarez Cristal Corum strings, which I like alot, and the HumiCase. I love it!
