    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.

    Not bad, considering the low price

    Haven'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 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.

    An Excellent Value

    With a solid top, this guitar rings out nicely with clear sustain. I prefer high tension strings on it. The action is good; intonation is correct. The guitar is attractive, very playable, and an excellent value. This is a lower priced classical guitar that plays and sounds like a much more expensive instrument. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

    Great Starter Classical!

    Great, 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 also 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.
