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 (31 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. "A truley elligant instument at an affordable price that will turn heads."
Sound: This guitar has an encreditable voice. It tone is warm and distinctive.The volume projects well in a closed room and is a full and even tone throught. I havent had to mike it but I just know thatb it will soar. Feature: The gig bag is a treat and is well padded. I wouldnt hesitate to carry my guitar to an outing in it. The bag is strong and attractive and I think offers some protection from bummping and bruising. Ease of Use: This guitar melts in youre hands. I skim up and down the fretboard with such ease that I surprised my own self. I can bearly put this beautiful peice of art away. Quality: This is a very well made classical guitar. For under $1000.00 The quality and finish of this instrument is unique. I love the looks and style of this guitar. I mainly use this guitar for training and practice as I am a beginner in the music world but I think that this guitar travel well and in the proper venue it would be a pleasure to hear played. Value: This is a great guitar and not only preforms like a high end guitar but its looks and feature are equal as well. The Wow Factor: This guitar stands tall in the looks department and is a work of art. The finish and wood tone is splended and nicely highlighted at the curves and back. The headstock is bueatifly stained and well carved,the word that comes to mind is elligant. Overall: I will most likely keep this guitar as a main stay and as it wears or fails I will keep getting things repaired and beefed up. The saddle and nut are plastic but for the money and quality this is quit a bargain. I will eventualy replace the nut and saddle with bone after they wear out. You cant ask for a better guitar for this cost.
