Overview

The Cordoba C10 Parlor is ideal for the player looking for the feel, comfort, and ease of playability that a smaller instrument provides, while retaining the sweet, warm tone created by all-solid wood construction. Built with a solid European spruce top with solid Indian rosewood back and sides, the C10 Parlor features a 7/8 body size, 50mm nut width, and the fan bracing pattern found on most Cordoba guitars. This bracing pattern gives the center of the soundboard more surface area to vibrate and respond to the tension of the strings. A more responsive soundboard makes the guitar louder, and provides better tone.

Like every guitar in the Luthier Series, the C10 Parlor is built with Spanish heel construction, where the top of the guitar is attached to the neck, the sides are added next, and the guitar' body is sealed by the installation of the back. This construction technique allows the entire instrument to vibrate as one unified piece.

Aesthetic touches like the mother-of-pearl weave rosette inspired by a 1920's Domingo Esteso guitar add a touch of vintage elegance to this best-seller. Other premium features include an ebony fingerboard, rosewood bridge, high gloss finish, and Savarez Cristal Corum strings. 


The C10 Parlor includes Cordoba's lightweight polyfoam case.

      Comments about Cordoba C10 Parlor SP Classical Guitar:

      After much searching this was the only solid spruce top parlor size classical guitar i could find that also had solid back, sides, bone nut and ebony fingerboard. These were key features I was seeking in a classical 7/8 size. Without going for something $2000+. I was happy to save a little extra by finding it open box. I had a couple folks with more experienced eyes than myself look it over and declare it a fantastic instrument especially for the price. I will say the strings showed wear and need replacing but i guess that goes with the open box status, but this being easily correctable and the only defect i could fine i am very pleased with the purchase. Also comes with an excellent case. Beautiful bright tone with great projection. Not sure what more the average guitarist could want unless you prefer a cedar top, in which case there are a few other options.

      Comments about Cordoba C10 Parlor SP Classical Guitar:

      This is a beautifully made instrument. It is very playable and did not require any adjustments. I did not care for the high tension strings that it came with, so I replaced them with my favorite low tension strings. I think it's a much better match for the instrument. It comes with a nice case, but it is standard size and too big for a parlor guitar. I do recommend this guitar highly.
