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 a mahogany back and sides with a European spruce 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 European spruce top with 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 European spruce top, giving you the right balance of warmth and brightness. The neck is solid mahogany, for maximum transfer of string energy to the spruce 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 mahogany body and European Spruce 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
  • European spruce top for excellent definition and projection

C9 Spruce/Mahogany

(bought a couple of months ago) Really nice sound ...really good projection, ditto on bass response. An excellent guitar for dropped and alternate tunings. It sounds especially fantastic in open C and D tunings. My only little complaint is the action is too high- but that's easily dealt with. I ended up trying an Oasis carbon G string (for bright warmth per someone's suggestion-see Classical Guitar forum online) ...sounds excellent. I love it so much i want to play it out so i'm considering installing a pickup (if you play a variety of styles you may want to consider a model with a pickup included!!! Wish i had!)Overall would recommend without reservation-great guitar for the money!Derek was an excellent sales person ...especially since i orginally bought another guitar first (an archtop electric) that i wasn't in love with and i exchanged without incident! Sweetwater has great customer service indeed!Another thing worth knowing is if you get the humidor case Cordoba extends your warranty look into that...

cordoba c9

This is an excellent guitar. I purchased it 2 weeks ago. A big difference from the cheaper yamaha I was playing which sounds like a cardboard box with strings on it in comparison. Nice rich sounds on the lower bass notes. Highly recommend this instrument to any intermediate student seeking more enjoyable and improved playing. Very unlikely to disappoint my ownly regret was that the store did not have a c10 to test out.
