Special Order

Great Value in This Acoustic/Electric Nylon-string Guitar

The Cordoba C5-CEBK is a great value in a nylon-string acoustic-electric guitar. The C5-CEBK 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-CEBK is a great deal. And with the gloss polyurethane finish, Indian rosewood binding, and a stylish rosette, the Cordoba C5-CEBK looks as good as it plays.

Cordoba C5-CEBK Nylon-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Traditional design
  • Quality tonewoods
  • Fishman electronics
Traditional design

The Cordoba C5-CEBK classical guitar doesn't skimp on construction. The C5-CEBK 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-CEBK 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

At Sweetwater we know that great plugged-in tones start with great electronics, and the Cordoba C5-CEBK nylon-string guitar comes with the popular Fishman Isys+ pickup system. 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.
