From Our Research Team:
This Classical Guitar Has a Great Design at a Great Price!You'll love the sound, feel, and value of the Cordoba C3M nylon-string acoustic guitar! The C3M sports a mahogany body with a cedar top, for rich tone with a lively presence. Whether you're a beginner or experienced player, the C3M Cadete is a great value. And with the satin matte finish and stylish rosette, the Cordoba C3M looks as good as it plays.
Cordoba C3M at a Glance:
The Cordoba C3M doesn't skimp on construction. The C3M features traditional classical guitar design, including the solid cedar top (choice top wood for classical guitars) and Spanish-style fan bracing. Fan bracing is preferred for classical guitars over lattice bracing, as it allows the guitar's top to vibrate more freely while still providing evenly balanced tone.
While the Cordoba C3M is inexpensive, Cordoba did not sacrifice quality materials. The mahogany back and sides set a powerful tonal foundation for the solid cedar top, giving you the right blend of deep richness and brilliance. A rosewood fingerboard and bridge complete the elegant look.
Great Look, Great Playability:
The Cordoba C3M is a joy to simply look at, from the detailed rosette to the nickel-plated tuners with pearl buttons. And you'll love how the matte finish shows off the mahogany body and cedar top. But looks aren't everything - the C3M was designed with playability in mind, and the great look is just the icing on the classical cake.

Not bad, considering the low price
by rolie from CaliforniaHaven't noticed any major fret buzz at all. Tuners do stay in tune fine. Guitars are supposed to inspire you to play better music. This thing does that. I feel like I play different things I couldn't ... read more [+]normally play or hear. Got this to play Bach music and I could play parts much easier compared to steel string acoustic, even with a wider 2" inch nut and flat neck. It didn't take long at all to adapt.

Been playing guitar for 10+ years and never really played a decent classical nylon string guitar, played mostly steelstring acoustics and electrics. This guitar is not cheap at all. Never a fan of glossy finishes and the matte finish is smooth as silk feels very natural. Would be cool if the Cordoba C5 came in matte finish. Came with D'addario Pro Arte strings, after strings settled, this thing really shined. Do wish it had a cutaway, but for the price I can't complain. Can access upper frets fine.
I will playing this thing for years to come! Highly recommend for beginners or even players that just want try out a decent classical guitar without breaking the bank. close [-]
Great Starter Classical!
by Steve O from Pleasant Grove, UTGreat, great projection for such a starter price! It easily compares to many classical guitars $500+. It was the only guitar I found that sounded mature under $500. It has a very warm sound but als... read more [+]o can be very punchy and loud with rest strokes on treble strings. Very impressed overall and would recommend this guitar alone over any manufactured guitar. Of course if you have a luthier, nothing beats that, but if not, this guitar takes it.

One complaint, because it's factory made, the neck wasn't perfect but it wasn't bad either. Needed a little touch up. close [-]
