A great value for beginning students.

One of the most popular models and a staple in the Iberia Series lineup, the C3M is a full-sized, handcrafted guitar. It is built with the traditional Spanish fan bracing, a solid cedar top and mahogany back and sides. The C3M also has a hand inlaid wooden rosette, a rosewood fingerboard, and nickel tuning machines with pearl buttons. The "M" in the title stands for its light matte finish.

    This guitar is great, I own a $1,200 taylor and $1,300 American strat, and this guitar is my favorite, beautiful sound and great finish. So happy with this product, don't worry about the bridge falling off, that would only happen to an inexperienced user who probably dropped it, if you have $ and want a nice classical guitar, pick up the Cordoba C3M.

  • Beautiful Tone and Resonance

    As reviewed by Mike Bassil on 12/29/2011

    I just got this guitar today and I absolutely love it. All the notes come out crisp and clear and when I strum a chord the guitar practically vibrates in your hands. The dynamics in this guitar are also great and I had absolutely no fret buzz like other guitars in it's price range. The fact that it has a truss rod is also nice because it stays in tune much better. Overall, this is an outstanding guitar and I highly recommend it.

  • More than a student guitar

    As reviewed by Pedro Ortiz-Toral on 11/9/2011

    It is very lightweight which means thinner body material, but it is still WOOD not laminate. Sounds very punchy, balanced, and every note is clear. In sound quality and intonation it blows away most other guitars in its price range. In terms of volume and projection it is somewhere between a student guitar and a high end hand-made guitar. Go and try it.
