Cordoba Rawks

By Ray Spann

from Los Banos, CA

I wanted a small traveling guitar and when I saw that Cordoba had an instrument in this category I jumped on it. I own a GK Studio and the CM Uke and now the La Playa. I knew I would love it based on the quality of the other Cordobas I own, and I was so right. The real wood, the full size neck, the amazing sound, and more make this a great guitar not just a traveler. I fully intend to use this on stage.

Definitely portable

By Lan Tran

from Currently Douglas, WY

I wasn't too sure what to expect from this little guitar. I've only had dreadnaught guitars. I never had one so small, so my expectations were tempered. I travel and live out of hotels for work, so I got tired of lugging around my dreadnaught. When I received this guitar, it definitely sounded like what I would expect from a small guitar. Not good. Also, it was difficult to play because of the cheap strings and the high action. I don't know what kind of strings they were, but they were terrible. Well, I decided to switch to Elixir Custom Lights (Elixirs are my string of choice), and then day turned into night. The guitar seemed to come to life. The lows are deeper and the highs are brighter. I hope Cordoba reads this and changes the strings that they put on this guitar. And maybe a pick guard too, considering that this is a steel string. I would definitely pay more if those two things were changed. The little mini amp is useless. Get rid of the amp and change the strings Cordoba!

The new love in my life! "La Playa Steel String".. Thank you Donavan Frankenreiter!

By Ernest Pfeifer

from Port Jervis,New York

I have been playing guitar for 32 years and have never owned a low priced guitar of such high quality. Cordoba is my new guitar favorite! unfortunatly the pictures dont do this guitar justice, the tone is rich and balanced with good intonation,the playability is excellent,the feel of the neck is like a standard sized guitar w/1- 3/4" inch nut.The size is perfect!More like a 3/4 size over all. And it's sound fill's a room without useing the Amp! Pluged into my VOX AGA 150- It rivals my Taylor and Martins and my Lag aswell.The Travel Amp is cool and has a head phone jack.This December it will accompany me on a trip to South America, the high quality little Amp that is included is worth it's weight in gold as is the travel bag,this set up goes no problem in the over head carry on in any aircraft.Buy one for yourself and you will agree.This guitar is a must have for any serious musican- period. And blows away the competition with ease!

Nice guitar for the money...

By Tom McCormack

from Nashua, NH

If your anything like me, you cringe at the idea of taking you serious guitar out into the elements alla local park or beach. This guitar is perfect for impromptu practice sessions at the park or a jam at the beach.
