  • I Love This Guitar!

    As reviewed by Richard on 10/26/2010

    I was looking for a good nylon string guitar for both Mariachi and classical styles, and after trying every guitar in my price range at every store within 20 miles, I settled on the Cordoba C-5. I picked the Cordoba because it had the nicest feel, low action, beautiful tone, and best appearance compared to anything I tried even at 2-3 times the price. After taking it home, I literally couldn't put it down; it's a joy to play. I've had it several days now and my first impressions were more than confirmed. The finish is beautiful, no flaws of any kind that I could see, the playability is great; the guitar feels perfect in my hands. And the sound is rich and clean; almost none of the "boominess" found in a lot of classical guitars in this price range. Overall I'd highly recommend the Cordoba C-5!

  • Choose this Guitar

    As reviewed by BK on 3/22/2010

    This guitar is very good for anyone looking to play classical guitar. From a beginning guitarist to an experienced non-classical guitarist looking to start playing classical. The BEST guitar for the price. I feel that it plays beautifully despite that the strings are a bit far from the fret board. Some sand paper and glue will fix that. I'm very excited to play once the strings are lowered!!

  • Cordoba C5 is Quality

    As reviewed by Tod on 2/23/2011

    I recently purchased a C5 and have been learning classical technique. (I'm branching out from years of playing jazz on my Gibson steel string). The C5 is very easy to play - the action is as good as guitars costing MUCH more. The quality of the finish and tuners are top notch. But the real amazing thing about this guitar is the fullness of the bass strings. It has a very rich and full sound. It's a great guitar for the money!
