Cordoba Protege C1 - 1/2 size

The Cordoba Protege C1 - 1/2 size classical acoustic guitar is a great guitar if you are looking for a good quality guitar for kids, or a small inexpensive guitar for adults. I have played the guitar since I was a kid and I have many guitars. Most of these are full-size guitars. I have 4 young children that like to "play" also. They are at different levels of skill and interest. They range from age 6 to age 12. This guitar is a great size for all of them. I often find myself playing this guitar myself when I just want to crash on the sofa with a small guitar. Pros: The guitar is a quality instrument. The parts are inexpensive, but solid. The finishing is beautiful and professional. The sound is good for a small guitar. It will never sound like a larger instrument, but that is to be expected. The case that comes with the guitar is a decent soft case. At this price range, it is a great addition. Cons: The action is high. Higher than some other small guitars that I have. (But it does sound better than these others). - But this is to be expected at such a low price. I have taken steps to lower / improve this. Quick fixes if you have any luthier experience. (or common sense)Final Thoughts: At this price range, I think this guitar is wonderful. With a little bit of action improvement, the guitar is fun and easy to play. I think it is a great guitar for kids. It's not a big investment and it will introduce your kids to the guitar and hopefully spark an interest and desire to learn. You could do much worse. It is hard to believe that guitars can be built this well at such a low price. Cordoba did a great job on this one. Review of Sweetwater: I am 100% impressed with the Sweetwater company. They have the best customer service that I have seen from a company in a long time. I will continue to purchase all my musical needs from Sweetwater. Great job and keep it up. We need more companies like you!
