Wonderful Guitar

Beautifully made guitar with an even tonal response and good volume through the entire range. Smaller travel size makes it easy to carry and gig bag is well made and heavier duty than I was expecting.

Great Sound for an Inexpensive Guitar

Purchased the full size Córdoba Protege C1 last week to help my poor arthritis hands. I have been playing a steel string acoustic guitar for the past two years and my hands have been limiting me. The Sweetwater sales associate was very helpful and I tried out three other classical guitars before selecting the Córdoba.I am impressed how well this inexpensive guitar sounds. It projects almost as well as my solid spruce top acoustic guitar and is a lot easier on my hands. The guitar came with Savarez 500 CJ strings which work very well with the the guitar. I would recommend this guitar to my friends!

Great guitar and great price!

This guitar is overall amazing. This guitar may be aimed at beginners but, is a high quality guitar fit for anyone. It looks great, sounds nice, and feels great! I highly suggest this for any beginner and even for those who know how to play.

Cordoba C1

I played steel string guitar all my life. Wanted to try classical. Well my Sales Rep told me it was going to be different. And it is in a good way , I love the deep tone without any twang. Nylon makes it easy to play. Only had it for a few week , but so far so good. Thanks Sweetwater and Austin Moss .
