Great Value in This Acoustic/Electric Nylon-string Guitar

The Cordoba C5-CE is a great value in a nylon-string acoustic-electric guitar. The C5-CE sports a mahogany back and sides, with a solid Canadian red cedar top, for rich tone with a lively presence. The solid mahogany neck provides excellent sustain and detail. You'll also appreciate the playability of the slightly thinner neck and cutaway design for easy access to the upper frets. Whether you're a beginner or experienced player, the C5-CE is a great deal. And with the gloss polyurethane finish, Indian rosewood binding, and a stylish rosette, the Cordoba C5-CE looks as good as it plays.

Cordoba C5-CE Nylon-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • Traditional design

  • Quality tonewoods
  • Fishman electronics
Traditional design

The Cordoba C5-CE classical guitar doesn't skimp on construction. The C5-CE features traditional handmade classical guitar design, including the solid red 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 C5-CE nylon-string guitar 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. The neck is also solid mahogany for optimum transfer of string energy to the cedar top. A rosewood fingerboard and bridge complete the elegant look.

Fishman electronics

Your Cordoba C5-CE nylon-string guitar comes with a built-in Fishman Isys+ pickup system for great plugged-in tone. Whether you're playing live or just want an easy way to record, you'll love how the Fishman Isys+ system picks up every nuance of your performance. It also has a built-in tuner for easy tuning anytime.

Cordoba C5-CE Review

This guitar is sweet. Both acoustically and through an amp. Been playing this one for about 6 months now and couldn't be happier.
Music background: Student

Totally Saweet !!!!!!

I'm still a beginner by all means first off. I have tried learning guitar 5-6 times since I was a young kid and always had a really rough time because I have large hands and yes huge fingers. Learning on this wide nut classical is going to be much easier ! Now I looked at a lot of guitars before I bought this one and the quality is 3 times better then most other brands I looked at in this price range. Finish on this guitar is outstanding ! I absolutely love the tone, this guitar makes me want to learn to play !

Awesome Guitar!

This guitar is great I've been playing guitar for a few years and love the tone of this guitar! Such a great guitar and at a good price! Sweetwater made things easy and fast with delivery as usual!

Cordoba C5-CE Natural

Wonderful sound for the price...and not for the price...just WOW! I messed up though by using a pic and scratching the soft surface. If you get one, use your fingers or pic nicely... :)

Good Value. I Love it!

Beautiful Finish. She really sings plugged or unplugged. My only issue would be the rough edges on the outer frets, and the action might be a little too high for my taste. Nevertheless, I would highly recommend it. The strings are top notch. And as always EXCELLENT Sweetwater customer service!
