Overview

Slightly larger than the Requinto 580, the Cadete is a 3/4 size guitar (615mm scale length). It has the traditional Spanish 7 fan bracing, a solid Cedar top and mahogany back and sides. Additional features include a hand inlaid wooden rosette, gold tuning machines with pearl buttons and a rosewood fingerboard. An adjustable truss rod is built into the neck. This is a great guitar for anyone looking for a lightweight, comfortable, and easy playing instrument.

The Cordoba Cadete comes strung with high tension Savarez guitar strings, which are meant to be used in standard E tuning only. For a guitar that is designed to withstand higher pitched tunings, consider Cordoba's C1 1/4, C1 1/2, or Requinto 580.

A Great Voice in a Little Package

By Nealio

from Washington, D.C.

Comments about Cordoba Cadete 3/4 Size Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

I wish I could rate this with decimal points...if I could I'd rate it at 4.5. I think a lot of people blow off "student" guitars due to the label. As we move through life, we are tempted to label things; this is a bad practice because it closes the mind to possibilities. I compose/arrange and record my own stuff, since I play multiple instruments. I have yet to find that darker-sounding guitar--spruce tops are too bright for my purposes--that projects well, until now. This guitar will be used to provide rhythmic comping for jazz-bossa compositions...I'm stoked! Yes, while not perfect, at this price I challenge you to find a guitar from such a highly-respected manufacturer, with virtually flawless construction and with such unexpectedly superior sound projection AND with a neck that's easy on smaller hands, like mine. As one would expect from Cordoba, the construction and finish were worthy of a top-of-the-line classical. Nothing fancy--I hate paying for cosmetics, kinda like dating a high-maintenance woman--but what they provide is of superior quality. Great gig bag, too!

Cordoba=awsome

By MrHeyyouwhat

from new jersey

Comments about Cordoba Cadete 3/4 Size Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

I'm usually a bass player and other instruments as well. But i felt writing songs would be an easier task if i used a guitar rather than my bass. So i went to my local guitar center looking for a acoustic guitar. I wasn't specifically going in there for a classical guitar but the neks on them felt more natural being the thickness. so I bought the cadete because it was cheap, nice looking and extremely easy for me to play. the action is wonderful and super low. It came complete with relatively nice strings also and a case thats super padded and seams to be a durable item as well. the guitar is fairly light and the finish on it is out of this world. its almost like a 3D finish. It stays in tune very well also all around this guitar is very well made and I would recommend it to anyone looking to learn how to play the guitar.

My Daughter Loves This Guitar

By Claude Lehman

from Burlington, VT

Comments about Cordoba Cadete 3/4 Size Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

I bought this guitar for my daughter based on the advice of her teacher, a professional musician, who got his daughter one several years ago. The guitar sounds great and looks beautiful. It has a much richer sound than the 1/2 size Yamaha she's been playing for several years, although that guitar was very nice. She loves the sound and action of this instrumentI and will be even more motivated to practice and play every day. I would very much recommend this instrument.

Best Guitar I've Owned

By Karl

from Monroe

Comments about Cordoba Cadete 3/4 Size Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

I've owned a Fender Strat, Mustang, Jaguar, Martin 6 and 12 strings with the spruce top and HPL back and sides and this Cordoba is by far the best. Mahogany back and sides for under $300? What?!? If you wanted the same wood in a Martin it would cost about $3000. The only problem is getting this to amplify well. It's a not really a student guitar, it's a professional sounding guitar for smaller people. But to play live you need to install a pick up system, because dynamic microphones cannot pick up any of the overtones of this guitar. So far I've installed the Kremona saddle one for $79, and it sounds decent with finger picking picking, but terrible for strumming. I'm going to install an LR Baggs Anthem system in that, and I'll review that later if you're interested to find out how it sounds, but judging from their sound samples it should sound great. Peace, Karl

Lovely Sound

By JAG

Comments about Cordoba Cadete 3/4 Size Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

I developed arthritis in my hands and was unable to play my full-sized guitar. A ¾ -sized guitar is easier to play, and the slightly wider fretboard on this Cordoba is perfect for an adult player.

I would buy this guitar again.

By Karen

from Menlo Park, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Cordoba Cadete 3/4 Size Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

I like this guitar and would buy it again. It is easy and comfortable to play. I wanted a little smaller guitar, but not tiny. This fit the bill. I did experience some buzzing especially on strings 4-6 so I changed to a different brand of strings, (D'Addario Hard Tension) and it solved the problem for me. I would recommend it.
