Cordoba C10 Nylon-string Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
  • Traditional design
  • Quality tonewoods
  • Great look, great playability
Traditional Design:

The Cordoba C10 is constructed with incredible attention to detail. The C10 features traditional handmade classical guitar design, including the solid Canadian cedar top with 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.

Quality Tonewoods:

The Cordoba C10 features only premium quality tonewoods for maximum tonal complexity and richness. The solid Indian rosewood back and sides set a powerful tonal foundation for the solid Canadian cedar top, giving you the right balance of warmth and brightness. The neck is solid African mahogany, for maximum transfer of string energy to the spruce top. An ebony fingerboard and Indian rosewood bridge complete the elegant look.

Great Look, Great Playability:

The Cordoba C10 is gorgeous to simply look at, from the detailed Mother-of-Pearl "Esteso" rosette inlay and Indian rosewood binding to the gold floral tuners with ebony buttons. And you'll love how the gloss finish shows off the Indian rosewood body and Canadian cedar top. But looks aren't everything - the C10 was designed with playability in mind, and the great look is just the icing on the classical cake. You'll love how the C10 feels.

Top notch quality

My guitar instructor recommended that I give Cordoba guitars a try, so I did and found the C10 to be the best in its class of all solid woods for the money. I had a hard time choosing between the spruce or cedar. The spruce gave a pronounced low end while the cedar was more well rounded. In the end Im very pleased with my new axe and cant seem to put it down.

The Cordoba C10C is worth every penny

I recently ordered the Cordoba C10 cedar top from Sweetwater, and what a winning combination! Charlie Davis was very helpful answering questions about this guitar as well as other instruments, he kept me informed throughout the order and delivery process.The C10 is a great guitar for the price, Cordoba did an excellent job on this one! The balance between the base and the treble is very good, it has a great sustained bass, and a very nice finish.I recommend this instrument highly guitar if you’re looking for something in the $1000 price range!

Cordoba C10 LH Cedar Top

I've played more expensive classical guitars that don't have the same tonal quality as the Cordoba C10. It has a great sustained bass, a nice warm smooth treble sound that make this a very nice guitar for the beginner and the more experienced classical guitar players. It has one of the best built sound boards in the world & it was a very affordable price, Cordoba was the only company willing to work with me since I'm "left handed" and yes I do play LH. This "Cordoba" company really cares and the quality workmanship they put into each guitar, these hand made classical guitars are a master pieces of work, each and everyone of them is designed from original late 1770-1800 guitars built by some of the finer guitars like the "Torres" "Rodriguez" ect., you simply will not find better quality, price and great looking guitars any where else than Cordoba. I love my C10 LH and play it every single day!

A Great Guitar

I love my Cordoba C10 CD guitar. It is a beautiful instrument with a great sound and I enjoy playing it very much. I also appreciated the way Sweetwater treated me. They allowed me to test three other classic guitars (one less costly and two more costly than the C10) with the understanding that I pay only the return shipping fees for the three I did not want (using return labels that they supplied). I started with a Cordoba C7, which was a beautiful guitar with a very good sound, but I decided to compare it with a C10 whose nut width was slightly smaller. The sound and beauty of the C10 were excellent, the base notes were full and rich, and to me it was worth the price differential. Thinking I might do even better by paying a little more, I then tried two other guitars, but I felt neither of them was better than the C10 so I sent them back. I am very pleased with the C10. My Sweetwater sales engineer, Aaron, was very helpful. He was prompt in responding to my e-mails and phone calls and he offered me great technical assistance. I expect to make future orders from Sweetwater.

Great Guitar

I just received my C10 and couldn't be happier. The guitar looks and sounds great. The bass notes are amazing and the treble is nice and clear. The frets are very nice with no ends sticking past the neck. I was a little nervous buying it with out being able to play it first. But with Sweetwater's return policy I thought what the heck. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a very nice classical guitar.
