One of the original models in Cordoba's Luthier Series, the Cordoba C9 is built with solid European spruce top with solid mahogany back and sides. The C9 features a fan bracing pattern, which gives the center of the soundboard more surface area to vibrate and respond to the tension of the strings. A more responsive soundboard makes the guitar louder, and provides better tone. The C9 is the perfect choice for the serious classical guitarist, or for any player looking to upgrade to a concert-level instrument at an affordable price.

Like every guitar in the Luthier Series, the C9 is built with Spanish heel construction, where the top of the guitar is attached to the neck, the sides are added next, and the guitar' body is sealed by the installation of the back. This construction feature allows the entire instrument to vibrate as one unified piece. The C9 has the neck shape and flat fingerboard characteristic of traditional classical guitars, and includes the added benefit of a two-way truss rod built into the neck. Cordoba recently expanded upon the C9, offering two new options that appeal to guitarists from all backgrounds: the C9 Parlor, which has a 7/8 size body shape and 50mm nut width, and the C9 Crossover, which is a full size guitar with a slim neck profile, radiused fingerboard, and 48mm nut width.

Aesthetic touches like the mother-of-pearl weave rosette inspired by a 1920's Domingo Esteso guitar add a touch of vintage elegance to this best-seller. Other premium features include an rosewood fingerboard, rosewood bridge, high gloss finish, and Savarez Cristal Corum strings. The C9 includes Cordoba's lightweight polyfoam case.

Bright, responsive sound

By Bluejay

Comments about C9 SP/MH Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

I began taking classical guitar lessons in February using a Cardoba C1. I was very satisfied with that instrument as a beginner until I heard a C9 played by another student. The C1 was adaquate for a beginner, don't get me wrong, but the difference in the sound betwen the C1 and the C9 was amazing. The C9, at its price point, is still considered an entry level guitar, but the woods and appointments and the sound, are those of a much finer instrument. This is a solid wood guitar with a solid spruce top and solid mahogany sides and back. The solid woods, especially the sound board, make this guitar sing. It came setup with H T strings. The neck was dead flat but the action a little higher than I like. After 4 months of lessons I now know I like 3 mm from top of 12th fret to bottom of the low E string. This was achieved by removing about 1 mm from the bridge saddle. I have now used the guitar for one month and can say I am completly satisfied. I am not pretending that I can get everything out of this guitar after just a few lessons, but it's easy to play and the bright, responsive sound has brought a whole new dimension to the simple pieces I have learned so far. The C9 also comes with a fabric/styrofoam case.

Beautiful Guitar

Comments about Cordoba C9 SP/MH Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

Plays fair, looks beautiful.
I was hoping it had more volume.
I had 2 sloppy tuner keys that had play in them and so I sent it back. I could not exchange for another C9 because Cordoba stopped making them is what I was told and so I am exchanging for a Kremona Rhondo.
Musician's Friend is one awesome place to shop and the people there are tops!

Comments about Cordoba C9 SP/MH Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

• The Cordoba C9 SP/MH Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar Natural is a beautiful and responsive classical guitar. It action is good in comparison to other classical guitars. It plays well on both the bass and tremble strings of the guitar. The fret board is made out of Ebony which is pretty standard among most classical guitars. The European spruce top and mahogany back and sides creates an outstanding mellow sound with a natural corresponding tonal quality.

Great sound afforable price

By William Hartshorne

from NY

Comments about Cordoba C9 SP/MH Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

I go to school for performing arts with a concentration in classical guitar and my instructors all have 10k+ guitars that sound great but they are still amazed everytime i play on how amazing the c9 is and just for 700. Tuning heads have 0 play which gives me such accurate tuning and the neck has great playability. Looks amazing also

Fantastic!

By Dong Seo

from New York

Comments about Cordoba C9 SP/MH Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

I've been playing the classical guitar for quite some time now and have played and owned many different guitars. Don't let the price tag of this guitar deceive you into thinking that this is a budget model. It may be considered "budget" as far as its price point, but the sound is very big and refined. It has great projection without sacrificing tone. The highs are not as warm as the higher end cordoba models, but this guitar is very well balanced in its sound from the low to the high E. Another aspect of this guitar that is very noteworthy is that it has a booming bass that you would typically find in spanish made guitars. Wow! Thats the first thing you notice when off the bat when you pick this thing up. This can most certainly be used as a concert guitar. I am dead serious!

Best guitar in its class!

By Anna M

from San Francisco, CA

Comments about Cordoba C9 SP/MH Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

I have owned many concert level guitars, and this Cordoba C9 for less then a grande is a monster!!! Action is perfect, playabilty quite easy, sound is big and beautifu with a lot of box resonance for an instrument in this category. I'd say it plays close to a high quality concert instrument. The mahogany back and sides give it a brighter tone than one might expect in a rosewood instrument. Oh yeah, it's light as a feather!!! Thumbs up from my POV.
