Overview

The C5-CE features a solid Canadian cedar top and mahogany back and sides. 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. The Fishman Isys+ 2-band pickup system produces a rich and natural sound when amplified - perfect for gigging and recording. Choose sunburst finish or natural.

I've been eyeballing this guitar for about 1 1/2 years and finally just stopped screwing around and bought it. I used Guitar Center's phone line around Christmas and had it delivered to the house. Initially there was some buzz on the A string, then the G string, but the issue has resolved itself with no adjustments to the truss rod. I live in Michigan and I have to imagine the climate change and lack of humidity in December wreaked a bit of havoc on the wood. It plays beautifully now with no buzz whatsoever. The finish is superb with no flaws. The tuners work well, albeit a bit stiff yet. I may upgrade the strings in the near future. The cutaway is great and allows so much more playability. The electronics on-board are top notch and easy to use. It also has a built-in tuner - another plus. I am by no means an accomplished player, but I opened it up, tuned it and played a song or two on it and my wife said, "Wow, that sounds professional!" The action was great right out of the box, although after letting it settle to its surroundings first, I may look into lowering the action just a bit. I plugged it into my Peavey Vyper II and the guitar sounds just fantastic amplified. I haven't picked up my Telecaster or steel string since I bought it. The customer service on the phone was great. They promised 3-5 days for delivery when I ordered it on a Monday. It showed up by Wednesday night - another star if I could give one. I tried the Ibanez, Lucero, and the other classicals hanging on the wall at GC, but nothing sounded like this one. The cedar top gives such a full, warm sound that the others just don't compare to and at this price point, you just can't match it. You will not regret buying this guitar. It is by far the favorite in my collection!

Great guitar for any level of experience

By Chris

Comments about Cordoba C5-CE Classical Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar for a couple weeks now and I'm loving it! I got this guitar for guitar ensemble at school and it compliments well with other guitars. It has a nice sound and the pickup is great. The built-in tuner is very accurate and the cutaway is nice for higher solos. I would recommend this to any classical guitarist of any skill level.

      I like the "snap" of the sound of a Cordoba and then its rich tones to follow. Electronics are great and work well with my sound system.

      Love this Guitar!

      By Steve

      from Irvine, CA

      Comments about Cordoba C5-CE Classical Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I tried numerous nylon guitars in the store but this and the GK Studio stood out to me. I enjoyed the low action and the (slimmer?) neck of the GK but this feels similar but somewhat closer toward a more traditional classical guitar. In the end I preferred the mellower tone of the cedar top on the C5CE. It sounds great acoustically and amplified. I can't stop playing it. Love the sound (and the smell)!

      The new suburst model is a beauty!

      By Dave

      from New York

      Comments about Cordoba C5-CE Classical Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Sunburst! I've played so many classicals in GC, and the C5 has always been my favorite for its perfectly playable neck and action. The neck is just right - not too narrow, not too wide, and flat, just the way I like it. As other's have mentioned, it has wonderful sound - resonant bass and clear treble. I have a Del Vecchio which I hand picked at the factory in Brazil 35 years ago, and it has always had the most beautiful sound, but unfortunately only a fair neck and action. The C5 matches its sound across the whole range, but is so much more playable. The only reason I never bought a C5 was that the original color was simply too bland for my tastes. As soon as I saw the sunburst model, I ordered it. It came in yesterday, and all I can say is that it is stunning - the pictures do not do it justice. My only quibble is that it came with Savarez strings, rather than my preferred EJ45's, but even then it plays and sounds superb.
      Bottom line - it's beautiful, plays wonderfully, and has superb sound, at a very reasonable price.
