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

With its ultra-compact size, the Cordoba Mini R nylon-string guitar is perfect for players who are looking for a travel guitar. The Mini R sounds rich and full thanks to rosewood back and sides topped with solid spruce. And the mahogany neck sports a 1.96" nut width for the feel of a full-size classical guitar. And with extra touches like a bone nut and saddle, Indian rosewood binding, and silver tuners with black buttons, the Cordoba Mini R travel guitar looks as good as it plays.

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

The Cordoba Mini R is easy to play, thanks to the ultra-compact body and 1.96" nut width. The smaller body size makes the Mini R 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 R can be tuned in standard E tuning or up a 4th to A.

Quality tonewoods deliver great tone

While the Cordoba Mini R is inexpensive, Cordoba didn't skimp on the quality. The rosewood back and sides set a powerful tonal foundation for the solid spruce 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 R is an ideal travel guitar for nylon-string players.

Great Little Guitar

This guitar continues to surprise me and is truly addictive to play. Comfortable neck, roomy string spacing, intonates spot-on and has more volume than you'd expect for it's size. Price vs. quality is off the charts. The only improvement would be to offer this with a pickup/tuner/mic option like the C7-CE.

Unbiased Review

I am seriously blown away by this fine instrument. The solid Spruce is very finely grained the banding & rosette, are elegant, and beautiful, A bone nut & bridge, really? That really sets this up to be the best you can get out of a miniature instrument, with a string height of about 3mm at the 12th fret from the factory, and room for adjustment. I needed a smaller instrument because of a serious wrist injury about 5 years ago. This instrument has inspired me to start playing again after 5 years of regretting climbing onto a roof ! Who knows, maybe some day I'll feel better about moving up to a 3/4 or 7/8? If I do it will very likely be a Córdoba considering how impressed I am with the Mini R. I bought this instrument without trying or seeing one in person. I relied on the opinions of reviewers and YouTube videos. I hope to pass on my gratitude to Córdoba and others that reviewed them by leaving a review myself.

Definitely a must

First of all don't waste time and get a the Sweetwater platinum card!!!!!!!! This people are quite serious about customer services and professionalism. In about 8 years in US I haven't experienced such caring treatment from any online and non online music store.The guitar is great in all aspects, however it's size is the most important feature. If you're looking for something portable to move around the city, to use in classes especially if you have to travel to student's homes and sounds great with A string set as well with the standard E.The right hands,mic and eq definitely will achieve great musicall results,however to me it's more a portable tool to be connected with music everywhere. Also it should work for kids too.

I Love My Mini...

Just had to add this to my guitar collection! I was not disappointed. This little gem is beautifully made, extremely good-looking, easy to play and sounds fabulous! She has already been on one picnic with me and there will be many more to come. The perfect size to carry anyplace. She's looking forward to her first airplane ride!


I just received the Córdoba Mini R and it is amazing! I love this guitar! It is well made and very light. Although I am new in the guitar world I feel that the Córdoba Mini R is going to be a perfect companion for me to practice anywhere anytime. If you purchase any Córdoba Mini you will NOT be disappointed.
