A Nylon-string Travel Guitar with a Full-size Nut Width!

With its ultra-compact size, the Cordoba Mini O nylon-string guitar is perfect for players who are looking for a travel guitar. The Mini O sounds rich and full thanks to ovangkol back and sides topped with solid ovangkol. And the mahogany neck sports a 1.96" nut width for the feel of a full-size classical guitar.

Cordoba Mini O Nylon-string Travel Guitar at a Glance:
  • The ideal travel guitar
  • Quality tonewoods deliver great tone
The ideal travel guitar

The Cordoba Mini O is easy to play, thanks to the ultra-compact body and 1.96" nut width. The smaller body size makes the Mini O ideal for traveling, younger players, or anyone who wants a smaller-sized guitar. And the 1.96" nut width and 20" scale length give you a familiar feel and makes it easy to form chords and change positions. The Cordoba Mini O can be tuned in standard E tuning or up a 4th to A.

Quality tonewoods deliver great tone

While the Cordoba Mini O is inexpensive, Cordoba didn't skimp on the quality. The ovangkol back and sides set a powerful tonal foundation for the solid ovangkol top giving you the right blend of deep richness and brilliance. For maximum transfer of vibration, the neck is solid mahogany - the tone and sustain are amazing, and you'll love how every nuance of your playing is captured. A rosewood fingerboard and bridge complete the elegant look. Take it from the Sweetwater crew - the Cordoba Mini O is an ideal travel guitar for nylon-string players.

Great Fun

I can't recommend this little baby enough! It's so much fun as well as being extremely playable. I have tuned mine to G and it sounds great. The Ovangkol is beautiful with great grain. I have tried and owned the majority of the "travel", "mini", "baby", etc. guitars, but this is the only one that I have kept! Great feeling & sized neck on a take anywhere tiny body. Special thanks to my sales engineer, Mark Stein who always takes care of me.

Mini R

I've owned the Mini R for 9 months now and love it every time I play. It has a fuller sound than expected. I play full size Paulino Bernabé classical guitars (Madrid, Spain) but needed something to practice with in my car. I use German brand Hannabach Silver Specials Light Tension (Green package) strings tuned up a whole step to F#, B, E, A, C#, f #. Surprisingly nice sound!!!

This guitar arrived yesterday about 1:30, I opened it up (apparently ignoring the don't open for 4-8 hours due to cold) sign, still nothing happened to it... Anyway from opening to tuning to playing, I realized, this guitar is more than worth the $280 it costs. The overtones on mine are superfluous, and the harmonics are a dream. It's really bright, yet warm at the same time! A perfect substitute for my Guilele and a perfect practice guitar, Imagine that it's great for performing too. Neck action is perfect, fret distance is good and the lack of a eurethane finish on it is a godsend, I HATE shiny guitars for the most part. Anyone wanting something new and refreshing needs to at least pick this line up, I imagine the mini R and mahogany are very good as well.

Cordoba Mini O

This Cordoba Mini O was my first order from Sweetwater. I had wasted too much time locally by stopping in and calling music stores that were Cordoba dealers. None had the Cordoba Mini, in any of its wood choices. It was apparent that some of those I spoke to weren’t even familiar with the instrument. So, after calling Sweetwater and finding that they had it in stock and available for immediate shipment, I didn’t hesitate. I would have liked to see the guitar to check its appearance, playability and tone, but that wasn’t practical in this case. But, I didn’t know what to expect. The Mini O (ovangkol) arrived surprisingly quickly, and it is beautiful. I have two classicals made by a noted luthier, so I’m used to outstanding craftsmanship and superb sound. For the price of a Mini O, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was very surprised and pleased with the Mini O that I received. The ovangkol grain is beautiful and all joining is flawless. I found just one thing that, while acceptable, wouldn’t be expected on a higher priced instrument. The fret ends were a bit sharp, but not so much so as to cause a problem. I’m very pleased with the instrument and with Sweetwater.

So much to love.

There's really nothing but Pros when it comes to this Guilele, I couldn't name one single con right now. I've had it for a week and I absolutely love the sound. It's so sweet and full of tone and it just sounds like its singing out to you. I did replace the plastic bridge pins to Water Buffalo Horn and it made a new difference as expected, mostly in the sustain and treble. This was definitely part of the draw to this guitar as I've been experimenting with a lot of different bridge pin materials as of late.The full guitar scale matched onto the smaller body was definitely a great idea. I had the Yamaha GL1 Guitelele (before I broke it into pieces) and my one big complaint about it was the smaller fretboard scale so it was more similar to playing a uke and didn't at all help you practice the proper way (so to speak) when traveling. So this was another key feature for me.Another big draw to this guitar versus the Mini M and Mini R is that this model incorporates their Mahogany on the neck and Indian Rosewood on the binding, fretboard and bridge, so really it's the best of all worlds into one but with the Ovangkol being the real prize. I think all these woods incorporated into one really helps promote a full tonal spectrum.5 out of 5 for sure. Shipping was amazing. Personal sales associate was great too.
