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-CETBK acoustic-electric nylon 6-string guitar, mean you can plug that tone into your amp or PA!

Classic tonewoods

Cordoba's C5-CETBK 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

The C5-CETBK doesn't stop with great tonewood. The traditional Classical guitar-style construction employs Spanish fan bracing for support while using a one-piece top gives the guitar 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

Getting heard with C5-CETBK 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!
