        Comments about Cordoba C5 Nylon String Acoustic Guitar:

        This is a great guitar for the money! My son is taking private lessons after 2 years of guitar class in school. This guitar was recommended to me by several store staff as well as his private teacher. We wanted a guitar that was a step up from a beginner guitar, one that would last for years! Great quality and sound!

          This is a very nice guitar for the price. It's well made with a very nice polished look. The solid cedar top is good looking and the overall appearance is very nice. The sound is clean and the Savarez strings it comes with are great.

          Comments about Cordoba C5 Nylon String Acoustic Guitar:

          After many hours researching the best budget friendly, entry level, quality built guitar, it was this C5 that stood out from all the others. Just the quality and materials of the guitar is a great reason to make the purchase, but the guitar has a great sound, easy to play (even for smaller hands). The only negative thing I have noticed since owning the guitar less than 36 hours is that I have had to constantly tune the guitar. There might be a simple reason why the guitar falls slightly out of tune, but for the price I paid, the sound, and quality of materials, there isn't a better choice. Even the customer service department with Cordoba is wonderful. If you are interested in a great entry level guitar with a beer budget, then this C5 is the best choice around.

          The sound is just as good as an expensive other brand. I love it except that the guitar needs frequent tuning.

            Absolutely beautiful guitar! I have been playing for approximately 25 years, and recently decided to pick up the classical guitar. I could not be happier with my decision to purchase this Cordoba C5. It is very well made, sounds beautiful (right out of the box), and is very easy to play. It's one of those instruments that just begs to be played! I love it, nothing bad to say.

              I bought this guitar about a month ago and cant put it down. I am an experienced novice at best, but i know a great guitar when i play one. It has a rich, deep sound and is easy to play. Great guitar for any begginer or anyone just wanting a great classical guitar. You wont find a better one fo the same price believe me i looked.
