I owned one of these as my first >50 dollar classical and played it for several years before giving it away. I am about to buy another. The tone is very soft and warm and carries very well. You can coax a lot of volume from this model, although the tone can wash out a bit if you are playing very softly, but hey, it's not a 5000 dollar concert instrument either so... I don't believe it is possible to find a better guitar for this price range. I love the cedar top sound.

This guitar sounds fantastic, but the bridge keeps coming unglued. I have had two of these within 2 months do this. I keep it in a consistent 70 - 72 deg Fahrenheit with a relatively low humidity (probably 40%). I don't know if it was just a bad shipment or what, but I swear I haven't exposed it to any temperature swings or direct heat. Just store it in the gig bag it comes with. Guitarcenter has replaced it once no questions asked now I have to bring back the last replacement too. Their ProCoverage Warranty certainly has helped me feel better about this, but I just want to play. Anyone else experiencing this with one purchased late 2009 early 2010?

My first Córdoba guitar

By José

from Orlando, FL

Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

I bought this guitar to learn to play fingerstyle. The frets stick out the fingerboard a little and they need to be file down. First guitar that I get with this but, I don't find it a big deal.

Cons

  • None that I've seen yet

Best Uses

  • Learning to play fingerstyle guitar

Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

I've just started to learn fingerstyle guitar and needed a nylon string (I'm a steel string flatpicker). I got my C5 and am impressed with the projection and ease of play. This is just what I needed!

Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

I'm just beginning my journey with Classical Guitar and have been working with my wife's Yamaha over the past month. She wanted to get back to using her guitar and told me to buy my own. After a month of research on the web reading reviews and recommendations and looking for a supplier I decided on the Cordoba C5 and Guitar Center. I made two great choices The guitar looks and sounds very good... as good as my wife's... perhaps better. I'm very happy with my choice.

Great value.

By Novice guitarist

from Iowa

Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

Purchased used from Guitar Center website. It was delivered on time and well packaged. The condition was listed as "great". After much searching I found a small scuff on the back of the body. Otherwise looks and plays like brand new. I love the tone of the guitar. I've been playing for a couple of years and wanted something to use for learning classical and fingerstyle. I couldn't be happier.

Great Guitar Great Value

By Sol

from Lewes, DE

Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

As someone just learning to play a guitar I did a lot of research to get the best value for a beginner like me. The C5 appears to be an excellent fit. It sounds good, has the "specs" I was looking for and looks and feels well made. After I brought it home I asked a friend, who is an experienced guitarist and whose whose opinion I value, to examine it. After a thorough check including the ability to tune it to his exacting standards, he played it so that I could hear the sound as a spectator as well as a player. Think I made a good choice. At my age I doubt that I'll ever learn to outplay the C5 capabilities.

A great guitar for an affordable price

By Vahid N

from Denton, TX

Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

One of the best value classical guitars. For this price range this is the best guitar you can find hands down. I tried about 20 guitars at the store but as soon as I played a few chords on this guitar i knew this is the perfect one for me, buy this guitar and you wont regret it!
It is not so different with the more expensive model C7, both of the have warm and nice sound and play-ability!

Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

It has been many years since I played much but now that I am retired I traded one of my old guitars for the Cordoba C5 and could not be happier. I will be playing every day with this beauty.

  • Great sound
  • Nice Feel In The Hands

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Great intermediate guitar

    Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

    This is my first classical guitar, and I am very impressed with the way it feels and sounds. When I was shopping at the store, I tried several guitars before this one. At first, I shied away from it because I wasn't familiar with the brand. But when I picked it up and started to play it, there was a voice that seemed to say, "I am the one for you." The action of the strings to the fretboard is soft, but not mushy, and the strings sound very good. My instructor highly recommended this guitar after I described how it felt to me. I believe I'm going to like this one a lot!

    Cordoba C5

    By Norman

    from Brevard, NC

    Site Member

    Comments about Cordoba C5 Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

    At this price the Cordoba is the best value for your money. The guitar has quality materials, excellent craftsmanship, and most of all a superior sound to all others in this price range. I can't understand why people complain about a high action. A classic guitar is designed and built this way to allow full sound at the sound hole. No less than 2.7mm high E and 3.0mm Low E at the 12th fret.Measurement is bottom of string to top of fret. You go any lower and projection and sustain declines. People that want super low actions should get acoustic or electric with steel strings. I am very happy with my Cordoba and shortly will be getting a flamenco model People must remember that the C5 has a truss rod which should be adjusted to get proper relief at the neck. Norman H.

    Beautifully crafted guitar for starting out. I played all the guitars at Guitar Center and this one sounded the best for the right price. You can't go wrong for a first time classical guitar.
