Cordoba C5-CET Thinline - Canadian Cedar Top
In Stock!

Traditionally Built, Modern Playability!

The Cordoba C5-CET acoustic-electric nylon 6-string guitar is comprised of a solid Canadian cedar top and mahogany back and sides for a responsive, warm tone. A mainstay of Cordoba's Iberia series, the C5-CET is based on traditional, handbuilt Spanish guitar construction with a twist. A thinline body, thinner mahogany neck, and cutaway shape join Spanish bracing, giving you playability and strength for a guitar that you'll want to play for life. The Fishman Isys+ electronics on the Cordoba C5-CET acoustic-electric nylon-string guitar let you plug that tone into your amp or PA!

Cordoba C5-CET Acoustic-electric Nylon-string Guitar at a Glance:
  • Classic tonewoods for classic sounds
  • Traditional build quality meets modern playability
  • Fishman Isys+ preamp gets you heard
Classic tonewoods for classic sounds

Cordoba's C5-CET is made from the Iberia series' familiar combination of tonewoods: cedar and mahogany. The solid Canadian cedar top is responsive with plenty of attack, while the mahogany back and sides keep the tone warm and full for you. The mahogany neck is covered by a rosewood fingerboard giving you fantastic sustain and playability.

Traditional build quality meets modern playability

Sweetwater guitarists know a guitar's tone isn't just in the wood, it's a matter of construction too. The C5-CET's traditional classical-guitar-style construction employs Spanish fan bracing for support and uses a one-piece top to give the guitar a strength that means you'll be playing this guitar for years to come. The thinline body and cutaway design along with a thinner neck give you a tremendously playable, handmade guitar.

Fishman Isys+ preamp gets you heard

Getting heard with the C5-CET is effortless with the installed Fishman Isys+ preamp system. Including a bright LED readout tuner, battery indicator, 2-band EQ, and volume and phase controls on the control panel, shaping your tone has never been easier. Use the endpin output of the Sonicore pickup to plug into an amp or directly into any PA and get yourself heard!

a beautiful girl with a pretty voice...

who has a sour attitude unfortunately:^/ i was blown away at the look and tone of this guitar after plucking only a few notes i was convinced this was the girl of my dreams. the tone is superb and its beauty is unmatched at this price. when i tried to tune her up tho... THAT's when the headaches began for me. horrendous intonation. no exaggeration i mean its BAD. certain (critical) spots on the neck really fall apart tuning wise. this guitar is not tunable and therefore not playable. sending this one back.
