Cordoba's 1/2 size Requinto guitar is handmade with a solid cedar top and mahogany back and sides. The hand-inlaid all-natural wood rosette and Indian rosewood detailing distinguishes this model from other guitars in this price range. It is designed with the traditional 5-fan Torres style bracing to produce a rich Spanish sound in spite of its diminutive string length. Ideal for younger players learning how to play nylon string guitar or smaller hands.

The Cordoba Requinto comes strung with high tension Savarez guitar strings, which are meant to be used in standard E tuning. Because the scale length of this guitar is slightly shorter than a full size guitar, the tension will be slightly lower than a full sized guitar as a result, but will still play very well in standard tuning. The Requinto can be tuned up as high as a minor third up to G standard tuning, which will increase the tension, but any tunings higher than this are not recommended, as the added stress of the higher string tension of these tunings will compromise the long term health of the instrument.

    Comments about Cordoba Requinto 580 1/2 Size Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

    Please include measurements in specs. This guitar has a scale length of 22.8" which falls into the 3/4 size range NOT 1/2 size. More appropriate for a child 8-11 years of age. Very disappointed because my 6 year old cannot play it. Now I have to continue looking for a 1/2. Really nice guitar, though and easy to play just too large.
