Product Description

The Cordoba C5-CET has the same specifications as the C5-CE, but with a thinner body. The body depth on the C5-CET is 64mm at the upper bout and 70mm at the lower bout (2.5 / 2.8 inches), compared to the deeper traditional Spanish guitar depth of the standard C5-CE. It features a solid Canadian Cedar top and African Mahogany back and sides. The top is braced with a 5 fan Torres style bracing system for a warm and resonant sound. The C5-CET neck is made of lightweight Mahogany and is thinner than a standard classical guitar, with a fingerboard width at the nut of 50mm (1.96 inches) rather than 52mm.

The C5-CET is handmade and includes several detailed refinements like an all rosewood binding, bridge, headstock veneer, and heel cap. The rosette has been inlaid by hand is made using all natural woods. The BBand T35 pickup includes an onboard digital tuner, HZZless preamp, 3 band EQ and phase switch for a clean sound when amplified. Available in a natural high gloss PU finish (CET) or a sleek jet black finish (CETBK). Also available in standard fullbody depth (CE, CEBK).

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (12 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great guitar!"
Overall: I received my item new. The pickup system was unplugged inside the guitar so I plugged it back inside the guitar, and it worked great. The tuner works well, very easy to use. Acoustically it is great! Nice low frequency resonance despite the very comfortable thin body design, projection is medium loud, sweet highs and upper range is great. I've had the guitar a month, it has no fret buzz whatsoever knock on wood it stays tgat way. It's best to control humidity levels using an AC or dehumidifier for us South Floridians. The neck is wide like a traditional classical however it is very thin so it plays great for hours without fatigue.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Cordoba C5-CET is a bad-ass acoustic guitar!"
Overall: I purchased this guitar new with a natural finish from zZounds.com online and within a 7 day week I had received my guitar very promptly. I started playing guitar in 1995, mainly I play electric so this guitar is nice to play because of the thin neck however, it is wide like a traditional classical. I record a lot and wanted a classical sound of a Spanish acoustic guitar. The guitar was in great condition when it arrived however, I went to play the guitar using the on-board tuner and noticed it wasn't working because the pickup system wasn't fully plugged in inside the guitar! I didn't want to send it back and I have enough knowledge to figured it out myself. Luckily my wife and I were able to plug the cable back inside the guitar and everything worked perfectly. The guitar acoustically and electrically sounds really good! The thin body is comfortable for long periods of time and it still has a full bodied sound despite it's compact size. It feels like a very good quality guitar in the hands. The weight of the guitar is evenly balanced from neck to body. I have played a similar Ibanez model which plays like an electric because of a smaller size neck/fretboard and nut width, and was considering that because it's cheaper however, the Cordoba sounds superior especially when unplugged. It has a nice defined mid range, sweet highs possess sounds that are inviting beyond the 12th fret, no fret buzz, and defined lows.The Fishman electronics sound dynamite! When I recorded this guitar it sounded best when not eq'ued besides a little bass and treble boost from on-board pre amp on the guitar. The battery door is a little bit tough to open unless you have a strong thumb nail. It could use a 3 or 4 band eq control instead of a 2 band however, they did that because this guitar does NOT need EQ'ing to sound good. Just PLUG AND PLAY! The tuner is easy to use and very clear. Comes with a phase switch. Overall no big complaints. I guess the only thing I could say is the price is average, always could be cheaper in price. haha :) Treat yourself to something nicer than the Ibanez or Tyler Mountain (cheaper guitars). I recommend anyone to buy this guitar for any type of player beginner or advanced. Great sound, look, and it makes me want to play when I see it on the stand.
