zZounds Expert Review
There's a lot to love about the C5, but best of all, it's priced way lower than it should be! This Cordoba nylon-string guitar is a killer deal, considering how nice it sounds. The top is solid Canadian cedar, which gives the guitar a wonderful warm sound and tons of added resonance. When I increased the volume with my right hand, the guitar had a very unobtrusive attack, but enough high end to balance out the more muted character of the wood. Cedar classicals tend to have less volume, projection, and snap when compared to other tonewoods, but woods like spruce don't achieve the warmth that solid cedar provides. Straight out of the box, the action was very nice and comfortable, and I did not notice any real intonation problems in the upper register of the guitar. When I plucked closer to the bridge for a more flamenco sound, the guitar delivered. This guitar is perfect for beginner and intermediate players alike, and really does perform above its price. You won't find another classical this cheap that plays this great.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (32 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "VERY NICE SOUNDING CLASSICAL GUITAR"
Overall: All solid wood no laminates. You will be hard pressed to find a better sounding classical guitar in this price range and higher even. The Cedar top makes for a warm deep sound. Mine needed some fret dressing on the ends. For the price no problem. Bone nut and saddle. The gig bag is excellent. I have gone through countless guitars of all kinds. This is one of the best buys out there. To Note: Cedar will ding and scratch just looking at it. Make your own pickguard out of some clear vinyl you can find at Wal Store in the material department. Cheap. It clings to the gloss finish.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "cordoba C5"
Overall: Was really impressed by the online and phone service I received. I had ordered the C5 and a gator classical guitar case, separate, while inquiring about the discount price and how that would apply to both together, even though but both would be sent separate. "how nice it would be if both were sent together, I was told that probably was not going to happen, because both were not in the same proximity. I received the order in about 5 days, WY is a hard place to get an order of this size in this amount of time. I received "one" package, the guitar was sent in the gator guitar case, which was excellent, goes to show my individual situation was taken into account. The guitar is of superior make, the C5, beautiful wood and sounds rich and vibrant, I do plan to buy the same again. I have always felt in order to get a good guitar you must be able to sample them, I have not been able to find a guitar in WY or surrounding states that are not a toy quality. I am not disappointed in following these online reviews, invaluable.
