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.

This guitar gets more love from me than my significant other. I always look forward to playing this guitar, and I have a hard time putting it down. It feels natural in my hands; and the guitar rewards you with the most beautiful tone.

The action was high out of the box - as a classical guitar should. I come from a steel string background. I was able to easily modify the guitar to my specifications by lowering the action with the truss rod. I also appreciate the slightly thinner neck.

This Cordoba is highly sensitive and expressive. It's also aesthetically pleasing, with very minor nicks on the neck, and head. I purchased a Wolfpak Classical Guitar Polyfoam Case for 79. Awesome case with humidity check.

Pick one up. You won't regret it!

I purchased one C5-CE and sent it back because it buzzed very loudly on some notes. I was willing to give it the benefit of the doubt and exchanged it for a new one. It was better but still buzzed. I should have sent it back but decided to keep it and see if i could fix the buzz on my own. I put some felt in the battery box and new strings on the guitar which helped but didn't solve the problem. Then after about 10 months the bridge just came off!!! The bridge saddle had fit very loose and flew accross the room. I am working with Musicians Friend to see about a warranty repair. The buzzing could have been related to a poorly glued on bridge. We'll see, but I will not buy another Cordoba. I have owned many guitars and never had any issues with them. The Cordoba C5-Ce was not nearly the lowest cost it has turned out to be the cheapest construction.

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

    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.

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

    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

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

    We bought this guitar to transition our 9 year old who could no longer use a child sized guitar. His instructor recommended it, saying this was an adult size and would be all he needs going forward. Great investment.

    Great sound. Great buy.

    By Kahuna Ken

    from Cincinnati, OH

    Pros

    • Beautiful
    • Neck width is perfect
    • Plays like butter
    • Sounds great
    • Tuner is accurate

    Cons

    • Neck to top joint not cleanly finished

    Best Uses

    • Finger-style
    • Slack-key

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

    I use this for Hawaiian slack-key pieces that sound better on nylon. I'll probably expand use to other styles since this sounds so good. I've found the tuner to be accurate and the neck width is much more comfortable than wider classical. I've found no buzzing and the finishing is generally excellent except where the neck meet the top on the bass side. Its rough. No question though that I'm glad I bought this.
