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.
