Cordoba C3M - Canadian Cedar Top, Satin
Available Soon Notify me

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:
  • Traditional design
  • Quality tonewoods
  • Great look, great playability
Traditional Design:

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.

Quality Tonewoods:

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.

Cordoba C3M Nylon-string Acoustic Guitar Features:
  • Great-sounding guitar at an amazing price
  • Traditional Spanish fan bracing provides a balanced, lively sound
  • Mahogany back and sides for full-bodied frequency response
  • Cedar top for excellent definition and projection
Get a great classical guitar at a great price with the Cordoba C3M nylon-string classical guitar!

Sweet guitar!!!

I've played guitar for about 47 years.I've owned them all.I didn't think I would get much for $ I was blown away with the quality and sound I've been with sweetwater for about 10 year's thay have never steered me wrong. Thank you Sweetwater. Garold clark.

Unbelievable quality, attention to detail!

Córdoba build quality is next to none. Every peice of material and component is solidly built and well put together. Craftsmanship is near to perfection. I love the feel and look of the satin finish; very unique and rustic. I believe the satin finish adds a level of character that even more expensive guitars lack. As with anyone, the playability is key. This guitar dosnt skimp out on that either. The playability of this guitar is flawless; traditional setup for classical style. The greatest aspect of this guitar, that had me sold at first glance is the cedar top. Every note is sweet and tender as a song bird, as you get more aggressive, the guitar becomes a tiger. You will love and cherish this instrument for years to come!

Excellent product, excellent service!

My Cordoba C3M arrived two days after I placed my order, in perfect condition, in-tune, and was playable right out of the box! I have been playing the guitar since 1973, and had never owned a Cordoba before, but had heard a lot of really nice things about the company and their instruments, so I decided to check them out by purchasing their inexpensive entry-level C3M model. The guitar came with Savarez Cristal Corum High Tension 500CJ strings, Spanish fan-style bracing, a solid (not laminated plywood) Canadian cedar top and mahogany back and sides. The sound quality of this guitar compares with much more expensive guitars, so needless to say, I am impressed; so much so, that I am planning on purchasing one of their more expensive models within a year or two. Well, on top of all that, I just wanted to state that the 55-point product evaluation at Sweetwater Music is the best in the industry. My personal Sales Engineer, Stephen Oppenheim, personally checked out my order from top to bottom to ensure everything was up to specs before the product even left their store! I cannot speak highly enough of Sweetwater Music and their dedication to taking care of their customers. But the best part of the experience was that I never felt like a customer; I felt like a friend! These guys are not just sales clerks; they ARE musicians! They know what real musicians want and need, and they speak our language. Dealing with Sweetwater music was a great experience; I will never go anywhere else!

Renewed love for the guitar

It's been a long time since I touched a guitar. I had recently mentioned that I needed a hobby, and mentioned classical guitar to my wife and son. My son surprised me today, (Christmas), with this wonderful guitar. It's beautiful. Love the sound. I'm back at it. An excellent choice for someone who wants to learn. Thanks Jeremy.
