Hand Made Quality You Can See And Hear!

By Benny

from Cedar City, UT

I've been playing guitar for about 5 years now and I just got my hands on this beautiful guitar! First thing you notice about this guitar is the workmanship by Cordoba! Hand made excellence! I have played many guitars but nothing has comes close to this amazing guitar! The second you start to play you notice the warmth and projecting tone from thin body with Solid European Spruce and Flamed Maple Back & Sides. It's just amazing! The Pre Amp is just as amazing! Love how you can blend the Pickup with and built in mic. Beautiful sound! I will forever be a Cordoba player for life and my next guitar will surly be a Cordoba Guitar!

Fast Action


from Fayetteville, North Carolina

I have been studying classical nylon guitar as in Spanish or very formal style. This guitar has a slim body, is lightweight, and allows me to reach over the body due to the cut away and the neck is sleek and fast. The EQ really brings out a beautiful sound that you will love. I could not believe how fast transitioning the fret board and neck is compared to the true classical. This guitar has clear pick guard over the top and bottom area of the soundboard. It is a Spanish made instrument and quite beautiful. Purchased together with the case and humidifier case will avail you of Cordoba's extended warranty and some free goodies for registering on the website. I would recommend this for the guitarist that wants a classical small body guitar with nylon strings. It plays very similarly to my Martin HD-28 because of the neck and string spacing which is just a bit closer than a true classical guitar.

For acoustiacal this is it!

By Steve

from Canyon Hills, California

I have been playing for 40 years. This is the best sound I have heard in an acoustical pick up guitar. The tone is smooth and even. The slide is excellent and the factory pick up is excellent. I play easy listening south seas Jimmy Buffet, Logins and Messina. "Run River Run" sounds and plays beautifully. Can't beat it for the price
