collapse expand iconDescription

The Cordoba C9 CD/MH acoustic nylon-string classical guitar offers musicians an instrument with concert-level quality at an affordable price. Featuring a solid Canadian cedar top and solid mahogany back and sides, this guitar produces a warm, balanced tone with clear definition. The traditional Spanish fan bracing allows the soundboard to vibrate freely, resulting in a lively, resonant sound. Esthetic appointments like the hand-inlaid mother-of-pearl rosette inspired by a 1920s Domingo Esteso design give this guitar a touch of vintage elegance. Available in a natural satin finish, the Cordoba C9 CD/MH is a stunning instrument that sounds as good as it looks. This premium classical guitar is the perfect choice for musicians seeking an upgrade to a professional-level instrument.

Solid Wood Construction Provides Full, Nuanced Tone

The combination of cedar and mahogany, two highly resonant tonewoods, gives the C9 CD/MH a warm, balanced tone with clear highs and rich lows. The solid cedar top produces a sweet, woody sound with pronounced definition, while the solid mahogany back and sides add body and depth. Together, these all-solid woods create an instrument with a full tonal range that sings with overtones and natural nuance.

Traditional Spanish Bracing Enhances Resonance

The C9 CD/MH features traditional Spanish fan bracing, where tonewood braces in the shape of a fan support the solid cedar top. This bracing pattern gives the center of the soundboard more surface area to vibrate, allowing it to respond readily to the tension of the strings. A more responsive soundboard results in greater volume and better tone. The Spanish fan bracing helps produce the lively, resonant sound that Cordoba C9 CD/MH guitars are known for.

Premium Appointments and Playability

Like all Cordoba Luthier series guitars, the C9 CD/MH is built using Spanish heel construction, where the top is first attached to the neck, then the sides are added, and finally the back seals the body. This method allows the entire instrument to resonate as one unified whole. The C9 CD/MH has a traditional classical neck shape with a flat rosewood fingerboard and dual-action truss rod for stability. Aesthetic details include wood binding, a rosewood bridge, and a hand-inlaid mother-of-pearl rosette. Lightweight Savarez Cristal Corum strings provide a warm tone and effortless playability.

Includes Protective Case

The Cordoba C9 CD/MH ships with a Cordoba polyfoam case to keep your guitar protected when not in use and while traveling to performances or practice. The lightweight yet durable case has a plush interior lining, storage compartments for accessories, and a rugged exterior shell.
