Cordoba Protege C1 - 1/4 Size

This is a professional guitar for a small hand. I purchased it as it is recommended by the guitar teacher. My 5-year old daughter loves it. I also had exceptional customer service from Sweetwater. They went out their way to contact me and make sure I am 100% happy with the purchase. And I am.

5yr olds first guitar

My son is very excited to start his guitar lessons! He received his Córdoba 1/4 size and has been just strumming away! We bought an electric tuner and a few picks and have been practicing tuning. The guy at the music store said this was a great starter guitar at a superb price!! And it comes with a bag!! Quality product at a reasonable price! The shipping was fast and guitar was packaged very well. Very impressed! A great feature on this guitar is the wider fret board, much easier for beginners with little fingers.
Music background: Beginner

Does not stay in tune

I've had this guitar for 2 months and after about 5 continuous minutes of play, it's out of tune. Both my students and I have the same problem when using this guitar. I am going to look into what's causing this, but I would have loved for it to be problem free out of the box. Having said that, Sweetwater, in my opinion, has the best prices​ and customer service, and will continue being my go to for musical needs.
