Along with the sweet, warm tone provided by its all-solid body, the handmade Cordoba C9 Parlor (7/8 Size) features the vintage elegance of a hand-inlaid mother-of-pearl rosette inspired by a 1920s Domingo Esteso design. Like all Cordoba Luthier Series guitars, the C9 Parlor is handmade by a small team of builders in a boutique workshop, using traditional Spanish construction techniques such as the Spanish heel, hand carved necks and braces, and domed soundboard. The C9 Parlor is made with a solid Canadian cedar top and solid mahogany back and sides and includes a hardshell Cordoba humidified arch top wood case.

Order your Cordoba C9 Parlor 7/8 Size Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar from Sam Ash Direct today with the security of our 45/60 day return/price protection policy, and be sure to take advantage of our fast, free shipping.

*With the introduction of the C10 Parlor, Cordoba decided to rename the model previously titled “C9 Dolce” to “C9 Parlor.” Cordoba felt the word “Parlor” was a better, more universal descriptor of a small body instrument. No features of the guitar were changed aside from the name.

Comments about Cordoba C9 Dolce 7/8 Size Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

I am a music teacher and flutist. I always loved the sound of a classical guitar so last year I purchased a full size Cordoba C9 CD/MH and started taking lessons. I loved the sound and the action of the full sized C9, but it was a little too large for me. I just bought the C9 Dolce as a replacement and It's just the right size. The slightly shorter and narrower neck makes it easier to play in terms of finger stretch and arm reach. Also, the C9 now comes with Savarez Cristal Corum strings, which I like alot, and the HumiCase. I love it!

Cordoba has a 3 year limited guarantee that gets upgraded to a lifetime warranty when the guitar is purchased with a HumiCase.
