Great guitar
I've purchased three guitars and a keyboard from Musicians Friend. Each time I've been very pleased with the product. Customer service has been superb as well.

The C3M is an excellent classical (I own three) has great tone.What attracted me were some unique features, truss rod, slightly radiused fretboard, matt finish, solid cedar top.

Very playable with great tone.

I have now had 2 of these guitars and with both the bridge has popped off. Thank God for buying a warranty because I have had to replace 1 of them and I'm currently trying to fix the other one. I would not recomend this guitar to any one because of the problems that I have had with it.

    Great Christmas gift

    By Music Mom

    from Dalton, GA

    Comments about Cordoba C3M Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

    I purchased the Cordoba C3M for my 10 year old son's first guitar. It sounds as beautiful as it looks. We are amazed at what a big sound it makes. I debated whether or not he needed a full size or a smaller guitar, but he is handling this full size with no problem. I highly recommend this model for a beginning guitar.

    beautiful guitar

    Comments about Cordoba C3M Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

    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 C3M. I picked the Cordoba because it had the nicest feel, matte finish, beautiful tone, and best appearance compared to anything I tried even at 2-3 times the price. Unfortunately, the guitar was not available in the store but they quickly ordered it and it was delivered to my house in 5 days or so. I was looking for something that would be great for someone that is just starting off. Although I have now only had it for a couple hours I believe I made a great choice going with Cordoba as the C3M specifically as my choice.

    Clear tone, exact intonation, amazing value

    By Darien

    Comments about Cordoba C3M Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

    The C3M is an amazing value. Classical guitars I've owned: 1984 Ramirez 1A, 1974 Alvarez Yairi (modeled on 1A), and this Cordoba C3M. This is 650mm scale, (standard length, the 1A is long scale) but with perfect, wide string spacing on the 2 inch nut. A full size instrument ready for performance, no adjustment necessary. The resin nut and saddle are dense like bone with great tone. The solid cedar top produces a clear lovely sound. It is not as loud, but clear, good for counterpoint. There is a lot of break over the high saddle which must help set the top in motion but will bend over time. The intonation is perfect. The action is within spec, higher than a high end guitar but very playable. There is no buzz, except on the A string 9th-12th fret. The bracing and solid cedar top are strong enough to support the stock Savarez high tension strings, no distortion of top visible. High tension is necessary to produce as much volume with the standard (shorter than 1A) length. The construction is flawless. Again, because the tension is high on the normal 650mm scale, pitch changes are considerably on the trebles as the guitar warms up. The tuners have a solid feel. After 30 hours of playing, the original Savarez D string wore through at 3-5th frets. Another characteristic of high tension strings; the basses are under more stress and wear faster. Maybe that's just the brand, but I'm switching to a different brand hard tension that measures a little less tension than the Savarez. Cordoba understands what is required to make a performance ready instrument, even on this entry level guitar.

    Cordoba C3M

    By Jim

    from Murfreesboro Tennessee

    Comments about Cordoba C3M Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

    I am delighted with the guitar at any price but particularly for the modest price that it sells for. It sounds great and projects clear sounds at a nice volume. Offers a great value with solid cedar top and pretty matte finish. Comes with an allen wrench to adjust the truss rods and I had the salesguy lower the action a little which is not hard to do at all; Cordoba even has a online video on how do adjust if needed.
