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!

    Bought this to possibly replace an old acoustic. So far, it is great. love the pickup and the cutaway (my old one is a traditional nylon). sounds great both plugged in to my daw, and as a regular acoustic.

    I play this finger style at church and at restaurant gigs. it's a perfect mellow sound for soft background and sensual dining. It has become my go to guitar for most solo gigs! Complements vocals nicely.

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

    this is my first new guitar purchase,nice looking guitar,once I started playing I notice a buzzing sound on the G string and and the frets were to sharp,I took it back to the store and they decided to order a new one instead of adjusting it,on my second guitar as soon as I open the box there was a broken string and I notice a very pronounced rippling on the top of the guitar and the sound wasn't very clear, so I decided to return it and upgrade to a Cordoba GK Studio

    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)!
