Beauty in tone and appearance.

The handmade C10 is one of the first all-solid guitars in the Iberia series. Along with the sweet, warm tone provided by its all-solid body, the C10 features the vintage elegance of a hand-inlayed mother-of-pearl rosette inspired by a 1920s Domingo Esteso design. Available with a solid European spruce (our SKU #583155) or Canadian cedar top with Indian rosewood back and sides. Other notable features of the C10 include its black and gold tuning machines and adjustable truss rod. Comes with a Cordoba Polyfoam Case.

Cordoba represents a blend of bohemian creativity and individuality with a heritage of artistry and craftsmanship. The quality of Cordoba guitars is recognized worldwide by artists from a variety of genres and musical backgrounds. Passion and tradition accompany every Cordoba guitar; from the craftsman who chooses the soundboard to the musician playing the finished instrument.

  • Perfect Guitar

    As reviewed by Marcus Baloue on 5/21/2013

    This guitar is the best! I needed to upgrade from my old classical guitar, and I searched hard for the best guitar at the best price. I visited a few music and guitar stores in Chicago, playing lots of guitars in the $1000-2000 price ranges. This guitar is by far the best guitar in that range and it exceeds my expectations. The body of the guitar is beautiful and the sound is amazing. I am able to get lots of volume and the tone quality is superior. In my guitar ensemble at my music school, I am able to compare my guitar to lots of other guitar. This guitar offers a better sound, body and feel that lots of guitars that I know people paid double or triple the price for. This is my second Cordoba classical guitar, and I have been very pleased with both. I have had this guitar for about two months and my older Cordoba for about four years (purchased new for about $200). Both perform very well and I have not had any issues with either.

  • A precious little thing!!!

    As reviewed by MIGUEL CASTELLANOS on 1/31/2012

    I ordered an used one in "mint" condition. When I went to the store to get it, I had the staff take it out of the cardboard box and inspected it. We could not find anything that would indicate it was an used guitar. Even onlookers thought it was brand new. I tested it right there and the sound was just sublime!! Had to have the trust-rod adjusted a little bit to avoid buzzing. Within 3 days, the D string snapped. Then I realized, I did not buy strings. Drove back to the store and bought two packs of D'Adarios EXP. It took a while for the strings to really settle. The sound was even better than with the original strings!!! The gig bag is beautiful, practical, very protective and light.

  • Cordoba C-10 cedar top

    As reviewed by Greg on 5/24/2010

    Ordering: The ordering process was painless. Guitar Centers I visited did not have a C-10 available to try but some had C-7 and C-5s. I was impressed with the sound of the C-7. I decided to order a C-10 at the store (If you are not satisfied, you do not have to pay return shipping/restocking fee) shipped directly to me. Received my guitar at my home address in about 1 week. The packing was very good with shipping dents/scuffs on the outside box, the inner box was fine. Inside this box was a crumpled paper packed, firm foam formed guitar case with an integrated nylon cover. The case seemed to be made for the C-10's dimensions as the guitar packed inside it was snugly fit with no hint of movement. The case is a zipper closed case with an external pocket just large enough for a foot stool. Guitar: The fit and finish is very good for this price with no hint of excess glue inside the body and all the joints seem well finished with no hint of gapping/misalignment of the binding. The heel joint to body is tight (this guitar has a truss rod)and is even with the guitar surface. The back is finished well with book matched EIR and surrounding binding on each side. Sides are well finished with good binding application. The Cedar top is of very good/excellent grade and book matched very well. Polyurethane finish is thin enough to see a hint of the wood grain but adequate for protection. Although I prefer a wood rosette, the MOP rosette and bridge decoration will be fine. Machines appear to be of very good quality and works very well/easily. The black wood pegs and roller adds a nice accent to the thick gold plates. Setup: The guitar is very light and comes with Savarez medium tension strings. Neck has a very comfortable profile and fretting is easy and no buzzing encountered when playng loudly. Fret ends are adequately filed as not to have much sharp edges however if the ebony fret board is not kept at 40-50% humidity, I think the fret ends will be noticeable and sharp. The string spacing is also very comfortable and intonation is quite adequate. Tremolo pieces are easier to lay on this guitar and individual voices are easily discerned. Harmonics ring loud and clear and match the 12 fret notes. Sound: Definitely loud and clear (you can actually feel the vibrations as you play). Notes seem to have good sustain. Although this guitar is loud, the sound becomes compressed and distorted when playing more loud. Bass strings sound warm and separate with excellant sustain whether fretted or open. Treble strings are separate with sustain but have a very nasal quality but I suspect that changing to a different brand of treble strings will alleviate this character. I need to change strings anyway as they have already become worn at the frets. This review is after 2 weeks of long daily playing(>2-4 hours daily). I am still wondering about the long term stability of this very light guitar. Although no possible, I give this guitar 4.5 stars
