The Cordoba C10 CD nylon-string classical acoustic guitar is a concert-level instrument designed for serious players. Handcrafted in a boutique workshop, this Spanish-style guitar generates rich, resonant tones through an all-solid wood construction. You'll appreciate its premium components and traditional touches that inspire nuanced play. The C10 CD is the ideal guitar for elevating your classical technique and nurturing your musical passion.

Responsive All-Solid Woods Create Depth and Nuance

The C10 CD's solid Canadian cedar top and Indian rosewood back and sides vibrate freely to produce warm yet crisp tones with complex overtones. The fan-braced top is sensitive to your lightest touch, giving you expressive control over dynamics and timbre. The rosewood contributes a robust low end balanced by shimmering highs. Together, these woods create an open, breathy sound with sustain that lingers.

Traditional Build and Premium Parts Honor Classical Heritage

Cordoba built the C10 CD using time-tested Spanish techniques like a Spanish heel neck joint and traditional bracing. An ebony fingerboard offers a smooth, rigid surface for intricate fingering. The C-shaped mahogany neck provides comfortable playability. Gold classical tuners keep the guitar stable once tuned while adding a decorative touch. A hand-laid mosaic rosette and wooden binding demonstrate artisanal craft. Overall, the C10 CD's traditional build and premium components pay homage to classical guitar lineage.

Premium Appointments and Lifetime Quality

Delicate touches like the 1920s-inspired pearloid rosette and wooden binding reflect Cordoba's passion for detail. With a high-gloss finish, Savarez Cristal Corum strings and lightweight case, the C10 arrives ready to perform. Cordoba's commitment to handcraftsmanship and premium tonewoods results in an instrument you'll enjoy for life.
