Cordoba C10 Cedar Top
I bought my Cordoba C10 here at Sweetwater almost exactly one year ago. The guitar arrived the day after I ordered it and was in perfect, "already set up" condition. I am considering buying a Cordoba C5 for a "travel and play around" guitar, one that I don't care if it is damaged. While at the Sweetwater site I decided to write this review for the C10.
First of all, I am very glad I ordered the guitar from Sweetwater - the service was outstanding and I am planning on buying another guitar from them. Too bad they don't sell Ramirez classical guitars, which is another guitar I am looking into.
Now, about the C10. This is a beautiful instrument both in tone and appearance. I couldn't believe how great it sounded at this price. The craftsmanship is near flawless, and I tried VERY hard to find builder flaws, such as glue showing on the inside, lacquer missing in areas, uneven application of lacquer, etc. After having this guitar for one year, I still have not found any noticeable workmanship flaws. It is a beautiful looking guitar.
The playability of this guitar is very good. Everything you would want to do with a guitar can be done with the C10 with relative "ease".
To sum up, I can't recommend this instrument highly enough. I like it so much I am planning on buying another Cordoba guitar (the C5 as I explained above). This guitar could EASILY sell for twice the price.
The only negative thing I could possibly say about this guitar is that after I tune each open string, they all tend to get flat sounding as you go up the neck. NOT very noticeable, but it does happen. But then again, this is not a $5,000 Ramirez guitar either.
