After spending a few hours comparing various makes of classical guitars, I choose the C7 (solid cedar top) simply because it had a warmer, richer tone than any of the other classical guitars in the store. It sounded warmer than all Ramirez guitars. Even the ones that cost double the money (and you still were getting laminate back and sides on the Ramirezs). The neck and fretboard are smooth. I have owned this gutar for a week and it inspires me to play everyday. All of the Iberia line of Cordoba guitars are made in China. This fact used to bother me, but when compared to other classicals in this price range (and twice as expensive), it blew them away. Customer support from Cordoba (based in California) is very good as they respond w/i 24 hours to all my questions via email. This is a relatively new company and they seem to have something to prove (and are doing so).

I am a classical guitar student in college. When I began looking for a guitar to take to college for my studies, this is the one that struck my eye. Such a warm tone, great response, and fantastic projection. It was really the only classical guitar stocked in my local GC, that was worth a wooden nickel. This guitar sounds way better than even the thousand dollar ramirez on the wall next to it. I bought it immediately. It served me well for the first semester of school. It is important to keep a guitar such as this moisture controlled (it could crack), so be sure to use a dampit over the winter if you live anywhere in North America. HOWEVER, this guitar let me down. Towards the end of my second semester, I noticed a rattle coming from the bridge. It was a string tail which had caught below the bridge. The bridge had actually begun to separate from the body of the guitar! I had a performance five days later, and when I opened up the case, the bridge had come off entirely. This is caused by the maker not heating the glue properly before attaching the bridge. I honestly thought such a beautiful instrument would have better quality control. I am currently seeking warranty. What a shame!

        The one piece cedar top and exceptional craftsmanship produces a sound that cannot be touched at this price point. Excellent value and playability. I wish I'd purchased one sooner!

              The sound just booms out of it! Crystal highs and smoky lows ring out like magic. This is a very well made guitar and a beautiful piece to hold. My only regret is I didn't take the plunge to purchase one years sooner.

                    I'm an intermediate player and I was looking to push my study and abilities to a new level. I had my heart set on the C7 the moment i played it. The sound just booms from it. Is highs are nice and crisp while its lows are smoky and deep. This is simply an amazing instrument and a joy to play. I love my new guitar!

                          The Cordoba C7 is a fantastic guitar with a sound quality and appearance found in classical guitars in the $3,000 range. As an advance beginning classical guitarist, I expect this instrument to last many years. I highly recommend this guitar to anyone who is seriously studying classical guitar.

                          from Johnstown, PA

                          Comments about Cordoba C7 CD/IN Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

                          This is a beautiful, well-made guitar with full, rich tone in the bass and mids and clear, ringing top end. The top is solid Canadian red cedar, back and sides are Indian rosewood (laminate). The bridge and binding are Indian rosewood. The rosewood on mine is nicely figured and looks like it should be on a more expensive guitar. The rosette is all natural inlaid wood mosaic, very attractive. Mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard. Bone nut and bridge saddle. 12 frets to the body, 19 total. Spanish fan bracing. The guitar comes with a gig bag but if you buy a Humicase instead and notify Cordoba, they will upgrade you to a limited lifetime warranty. Guitar Center had a sale price and reduced it further because of a few small dings. Great value for the money. Thank you Cordoba and Guitar Center!

                          The combination of cedar and indian rosewood are a great match for a guitar and I am happy with the quality and feel of C7 as my first classical guitar.

                          Ordered this guitar online after reading all the amazing reviews. Cedar top is beautiful despite being two different colors. Extremely light weight instrument. Very mellow sound. Only real issue was the action. Starting about the eighth fret the action felt too high. Neck was fine so using the truss bar would not help.Would need to adjust the saddle, and there wasn't enough room to sand it down enough! And if you want to be picky, the frets were very rough. Yes, it's possible to fix that, but on a guitar in this price range it was an unexpected disappointment. Returned to Guitar Center, thanks to their amazing return policy.

                          I'm returning to the guitar after two decades, and was seeking a classical guitar that would be versatile in its ability to provide a balance of warm and bright tones. The aesthetics are pleasing, and the neck is shallow which lends to comfort in hand. I am happy with my new companion.

                          I've been searching for a new classical guitar to replace the Gibson built Epiphone which I have owned for 30 years. Neck issues made me realize it was time to retire it. After trying out many new models, I settled on the Cordoba C7 with it's cedar top and rosewood back and sides just like my old one has. I think that the Cordoba C7 with it's rich, deep sound and beautiful well-constructed body is an excellent value for the price. The fact that it has a truss rod also influenced my decision to buy it.

                          This is the perfect guitar for first timer. It was recommend to me by a sales associate at a guitar center store and to tell you the truth i fell in love with it. It looks beautiful, almost compared to a very expensive top of the line guitar. I will be learning great n this guitar i highly recommended.
