Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

I had my eye on the C5 for a long time, but I ended up buying a model by another manufacturer because it was cheaper. Well, when I could finally afford it, I sold my old classical and bought the C5. But that evening, while playing it, I noticed the bridge was pulled off about an 1/8 in. on the bass-string side of the guitar. When I got home from work the next day, ready to take the guitar back for a trade, I was amazed to find the bridge had completely popped off! I was disappointed, but still I went back to the store and traded the broken C5 for one in good condition, and I don't regret that decision, because this new one shows no signs of the bridge failure the other one suffered. Who knows? Some careless person might have stopped by the acoustic section and dropped it on the showroom floor before I got there. I give Cordoba the benefit of the doubt, because I really do enjoy this guitar. It's built well, it sounds great, and it's very affordable. I don't see myself trading in this guitar for another one anytime soon, unless it's for another Cordoba. Keep up the good work!

    Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

    Cordoba is known as one of the very best producers of nylon string instruments, and this model carries on that tradition in spades. Luscious woody tone that has depth and sparkle, and an ease of playability second to none. Rivals anything in its price range. I am a Sam Ash reviewer.

        Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

        This guitar sings with its solid top! A great entry into classical guitar. The action was low out of the box and I stretched the strings immediately and they stayed in tune. This guitar is one of the best values you will find for the money.

            Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

            Cordoba is one of the leading brands for nylon string guitars. The C5 is a incredibly well made guitar without a huge price tag. The cedar top gives it the classic nylon string guitar tone you expect to hear from the likes of Andrés Segovia. The rosewood back and sides complement the warm tones given by the cedar top. Additionally this guitar is available as an acoustic/electric for only $100. One of the best value classical guitars! Stop by your local Sam Ash Music and check one out!

              Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

              The Cordoba C5 is a great classical guitar. Its' mahogany body and cedar top provide a full warm tone. This guitar is great for a beginning player or a seasoned guitarist that might not have owned a classical prior to picking up the C5. Besides having quality tone, this guitar holds tune very well and will make it easy on any newcomer to guitar.

              The C5 is a great value and a solid choice when searching for a entry level to intermediate level classical guitar.

                Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

                The mahogany and solid Canadian cedar top wood construction is the main factor that brings out the beautiful warm tone that this classical guitar produces. The modified dovetail joint is a plus. The flat rosewood fingerboard makes it much easier to hold guitar chords down. This classical guitar is definitely a great buy.

                  Great classical guitar, and not too expensive. This guitar is great for entry level player. But it is a great guitar really, for recording or anything else. I like leaving mine on the wall and jamming on it when I can.
