      Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical 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).

        Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

        Great playing and sounding guitar for the money. I was amazed when I picked one up just how warm and clear the tone is. Solid Cedar top with mahogany back and sides gives it a warm but well balanced tone. Sounds and looks beautiful. Just make sure that you get a case for it and case humidifiers. That way it doesn't dry out too much and cause cracks in the body of the guitar. I'm a sales associate at Sam Ash Music Ontario.

          Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

          The Cordoba C5 is one of my favorite intermediate classical acoustic guitar out right now. It has a very full, rich sound and you can really attribute that to the solid cedar top, which gives it a very warm snappy response, and the mahogany back and sides which help to project. For the money the C5 is a steal and that's exactly why I bought mine. I am a Sam Ash Staff Reviewer

            Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

            This is a beautifully handmade guitar at a factory made price. It is a beautiful sounding guitar for both a beginner who doesn't know how to play or a seasoned vet who just needs something to bring around to jams and not be worried about scuffing his thousands of dollars guitar. This has a beautiful warm tone frmo the cedar and mahogany bod and great feel along the rosewood fingerboard.

                Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

                Cordoba has long been known as one of the premier builders of nylon stringed instruments.
                The C-5 is full sized and features a solid spruce top. It's comfortable to play and makes it easy to coax smooth, sweet tones from this nicely built instrument.
                A cost friendly guitar that will suit players of all skill levels, this is a great choice for any guitarist.

                  If you're looking for a quality, handmade classical guitar at a steal of a price, look no further! I have no problem recommending this guitar as teachers in the area love the price and quality. No need for constant adjustments and retuning. A lot of attention to detail went into the design of this guitar and it shows. Even the handmade rosette is gorgeous!

                  Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

                  The Cordoba C5 is a definite bang for the buck for those who are just beginning classical guitar or even the seasoned player just looking for something inexpensive. It sounds like an expensive, high end guitar. It stays in tune beautifully and the sound carries. The neck feels very smooth and natural.

                      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!
