Cordoba C5 Spruce Top Nylon-String

Based on Cordoba's flagship C5, the C5 Spruce updates a fan favorite. Perfect as a first nylon-string guitar, this lightweight model is built with a solid Engelmann spruce top and mahogany back and sides to produce a clear, powerful tone with beautiful sustain. Handmade in the traditional Spanish style, the C5's carved headstock, hand-inlaid wood rosette, Pau Ferro binding, Savarez strings, and glossy PU finish result in a guitar that truly stands out from all other entry-level options. A lightweight adjustable truss rod is built into the neck for stability. Available in Natural finish with solid Engelmann Spruce top.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Cordoba Guitars products.

Overall: For the price you're not going to get a better classical guitar anywhere. The craftsmanship is astonishingly good, the neck is dead straight, fretwork and finish are flawless, sound is crisp and round and deep. Cons are the machine heads are not the best so they can slip a bit. I plan to replace them with some high quality Schaller machine heads. The other con is the action is way too high and it needs a setup and intonation adjustment. So if you want to watch a few youtube videos on how to file down a classical nut and file and intonate a saddle, you're good to go. Or you can get a luthier to do it for you. So all in with the new tuners and some tools, you'll come in at about the $450 dollar range for a guitar that sounds much more expensive and stays perfectly in tune, or around $550 if you have a luthier set it up. That's an amazing value.

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: I bought the standard Cordova C5 first and sent it back because it had rusty strings, high action and tuning pegs that wouldn't stay in tune. Then I order the C5 Spruce top and it had a decent sound, the frets had burrs on the side of the fretboard that literally scratched the palm of my hand ! The action is incredibly high, too. The guitar was very pretty, but I fear these guitars are being mass produced so fast that the luthiers are giving them the attention they need. Burrs on the frets? That's just irresponsible guitar building right there, let alone quality checking. zZounds was absolutely amazing during this whole process. None of this falls back on them. I put everything on Córdoba. To be honest, they didn't even really sound that great either. I'm sorry, I've never left a bad review, but I got two subpar guitars with a week and I felt it needed to be said. Thanks.
Style of Music: I play bass mostly, but I love playing classical guitar, rock and funk.
