    Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

    I needed a new classical, so of course I started with Cordoba. I've always really liked any Cordoba's I was able to play, so I started with the C5 (I didn't want to spend too much as I'm mostly an electric player). I made the right choice as there was no need to see anything else, a fantastic classical guitar that has excellent build quality and is extremely easy to play. Whether using a pick or straight-up classical style, this guitar will handle it all and do it all. Pick one up!

        Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

        Classical guitar is my principal instrument, and I teach it at Sam Ash in Canoga Park. I have quite a few guitars, some of them very expensive, so not only do I recommend this guitar to new classical students, but I often play on one myself when I teach. While it doesn't have some of the sonic subtleties that trained ears can discern, it's every bit as playable as its more expensive cousins.

          This guitar is great for beginners and pros alike. Light weight and easy to play this is one of the best nylon stringed guitars for the price. With a solid cedar top and mahogany back and sides this guitar really sings.

            Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

            Great value! The folks at Cordoba know how to make a classical guitar! I am always impressed at how lightweight and resonant these instruments are. The finishes are thin so you have to be careful about putting small pick dents in the top. Make sure you humidify these guitars because they will crack if they are neglected and become dry. If you notice the frets edges are sharp that's a good indicator the guitar is dry. Overall this is a great guitar.

              Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

              There are a lot of classical guitars out there in this price range. I just really like this one. It plays very nice, comes with good strings already on it, and unlike most nylon strings, it stays in tune really well. The sound quality is decent for a lower end classical, but the most important feature, I think, for someone starting off is playability. This guitar has it.

              This guitar sings the right tune for any beginner or intermediate player. Most classical guitars in this price range lack the distinct mid and high end frequency response that are so key to classical guitar music. This cedar top wunderkind has no such issues and plays great. All my students play one. Choose this one it will not disappoint.

                If you are a beginner or a professional player looking for an affordable classical that sounds and plays great this is it. The solid cedar top produces a very warm mellow tone. For 299.99 this guitar is a no brainer. Very good all around. I am a reviewer @ New Haven Sam Ash

                  Surprisingly rich tone for an inexpensive classical guitar. The solid cedar top and mahogany body/neck combo ensure that every note is clear and balanced. Worth investing in a case to protect this guitar!

                    Awesome affordable guitar for the introductory to the advanced player. Not everyone can afford a made in Spain, super fancy, high end classical guitar, but they do understand quality and good sound. Cordoba recognizes that and makes guitars of all price ranges for all sorts of players. Super comfortable, made well, AND has a truss rod in the neck for adjustment(most classicals do not have them).
