A traditional and affordable nylon string with built-in fishman pickup and tuner.

The construction is based upon the traditional Spanish classical guitar with the exception of a soft cutaway and a slightly thinner neck than a full-sized classical guitar.

  • Great purchase for a great price!

    As reviewed by Isaiah Montalvo on 1/8/2013

    I purchased this guitar over two years ago and it is the best guitar decision i have made thus far. The cordoba c5-ce immediately became my favorite guitar to play. I own a schecter hellraiser solo-6 and a yamaha guitar that i got from a starter kit about five years ago, and the classical has been my favorite since the day i got it. The guitar also came with a guitar case that makes it easier to lug around. The guitar sounds both amazing when played electrically or acoustically. I have found that the "classical sound" dissipates when plugged into a monitor system, if you are not very good at balancing it may just be better to mike the guitar instead. The guitar sounds very crisp, with very deep bass and light, clear trebles and when playing classical pieces it just sounds beautiful. If you are looking into getting a cordoba c5 or c5-ce i was definately go with the ce, the price is not much more and for what you get its worth it. The cordoba has been the best guitar decision ive made. Definately a must have for anyone wanting to begin or currently studying classical music.

  • Spectacular instrument at a great price point

    As reviewed by DANIEL on 7/10/2014

    A little background, my primary acoustic guitars are both Gibsons (J-45 and SJ-200) -- both are incredible instruments and leave me with high standards for any future guitar acquisitions. That said, I was looking for a different timbre to add to my arsenal and a nylon string guitar was just the thing. I was a little wary of the laminate back and sides, although I knew the solid cedar top on this guitar would be great. I was pleasantly surprised both at the store and at home when I played this spectacular instrument at such a great price point. The C5-CE makes we want to play all day and gives me such a different sound than my steel strings Gibson flat tops, that I'm newly inspired in my playing. The sound is warm and even across the fret board and the balance between strings is superb. Another bonus is that is sounds equally wonderful plugged into my Fishman Loudbox Artist amplifier. I have no regrets whatsoever and would highly recommend this nylon string / classical guitar.

  • Great Product

    As reviewed by Patrick Mccuen on 1/21/2013

    I purchased this as a gift for myself after doing quite a bit of research. This is great guitar with great sound and finish. I purchased this at the Roseville, Michigan store and they were very helpful. This guitar plays very smoothly and I was happy with it right out of the box. The action is a little high but with the nylon strings it is not an issue. The sound is very clear and rings out nicely. All in all it is exactly what I wanted and exactly what I expected from the Cordoba brand.
