In Stock!

Performance and Features Far Exceed Its Price

Enjoy rich tone and exquisite craftsmanship with the Cordoba C9! The Cordoba C9 is an excellent value in a nylon-string acoustic guitar. The handmade C9 sports mahogany back and sides with a Canadian cedar top, for rich tones with a lively presence. And the solid African mahogany neck provides excellent sustain and detail. No matter what your experience level, you'll love the attention to detail and excellent playability of the C9. And with the gloss polyurethane finish, Indian rosewood binding, and a stylish rosette, the C9 looks as good as it plays. The Cordoba C9 even comes with a polyfoam hard case!

Cordoba C9 Nylon-string Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
  • Traditional design
  • Quality tonewoods
  • Great look, great playability
Traditional Design:

The Cordoba C9 doesn't skimp on construction. The C9 features traditional handmade classical guitar design, including the solid Canadian 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 C9 is inexpensive, Cordoba did not sacrifice quality materials. The solid mahogany back and sides set a powerful tonal foundation for the solid cedar top, giving you the right balance of warmth and brightness. The neck is solid mahogany, for maximum transfer of string energy to the cedar top. A rosewood fingerboard and Indian rosewood bridge complete the elegant look.

Great Look, Great Playability:

The Cordoba C9 is gorgeous to simply look at, from the detailed Mother-of-Pearl "Esteso" rosette inlay and Indian rosewood binding to the gold tuners with ebony buttons. And you'll love how the gloss finish shows off the Indian rosewood body and Canadian cedar top. But looks aren't everything - the C9 was designed with playability in mind, and the great look is just the icing on the classical cake.

Cordoba C9 Nylon-string Acoustic Guitar Features:
  • Great-sounding guitar at an amazing price
  • Traditional Spanish fan bracing provides a balanced, lively sound
  • Mahogany back and sides for full-bodied frequency response
  • Canadian cedar top for excellent definition and projection

Very easy to play. The guita has very good sound with very low price! I tried more than 10 brands below $1,700. This is the best one. I bought it recently.

a new start

I have been a finger-style player for 38 years, but until recently, it was always on a steel-string guitar. Recently, I decided to switch to a nylon-string classical guitar. After checking out several different brands and models, I felt that this guitar would be a good fit for my playing style and budget. I am impressed enough with the quality of this guitar, and with Cordoba in general that I plan on ordering a Cordoba Solista in the future.
Music background: former pro-musician, still serious hobbyist
