Overview

The C5-CET includes the same features as the C5-CE but in a sleek thinline body size. A great guitar for the crossover player looking for a warmer nylon sound, it features a solid Canadian cedar top and mahogany back and sides with a jet black finish. The construction is based upon the traditional Spanish classical guitar with the exception of a soft cutaway and a slightly thinner neck. The Fishman Isys+ 2-band pickup system produces a rich and natural sound when amplified - perfect for gigging and recording. Choose black or natural. Case sold separately.

      Comments about Cordoba C5-CET Classical Thinline Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I would definitely recommend to friend although I rated 4 stars instead of the 5 I wanted to simply because of two things: the second fret under the 6, 5, and 4 strings caused some bad unwanted buzzing (from the factory set-up) and the electronic cable running from the control panel to the jack panel was not secured (making noise). I did not send it back because both issues were easily solved: did minor leveling fret work to remove the buzz and the cable was secure at one point but the adhesive-backed cable tie did not stick well to the side of the guitar frame during assembly. I will consider Cordoba again.

          • Sustain
          • Thin Body

          Cons

          • Action
          • Fretboard
          • Tuners

          Best Uses

            Comments about Cordoba C5-CET Classical Thinline Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            Cons: This guitar came needing a set up. The action is good up until about the 8th fret and then its very high.(I adjusted truss rod) I'm thinking the bridge will need to be shaved down and replaced. The finish on the fretboard is a bit rough and effects bending to me. The tuners feel cheap and are all over the place.
            Pros: This guitar is very light and playable. Im loving the thin body. The amount of bass and sustain even unplugged was very pleasantly suprising. I thought with the thin body there would be zero balls but unplugged it actually sounds pretty dang good. Plugged in is good as well. The finish on the guitar is nice( got the natural). With a good pro set up this is a decent classical for the money.

            Plays like and sounds like a dream

            By ggalvan2

            from Chicago, IL

            Comments about Cordoba C5-CET Classical Thinline Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            I received it as a wedding gift from my wife after we got back from our honeymoon and this guitar came perfect out of the box. It really surprised me with how big of a sound it has despite the thin body design. The guitar is light as a feather and the natural finish is beautiful. The guitar also sounds great plugged in as I have used it in worship services and really haven't had to EQ it too much. I have received several compliments on it and for the price you get a quality guitar that will last you a lifetime. The only downside is the onboard tuner is not the most sensitive but it can do the trick in a pinch. I still prefer to use my snark tuner though. Overall great guitar for any classical guitar enthusiasts.
