"Cordoba C7-CE"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have to say I am very happy with my guitar. It is great unplugged, and even better going through a PA. I play a lot of classical, but also James Taylor, Paul Simon, etc. and the guitar works perfectly for that style as well. I am also very impressed by the customer service at zzounds. I had a problem with the first guitar I purchased and without hesitation they found a solution for me. Overall very satisfied with everything, the guitar is beautiful. I played many others in looking and this one stood out right away, strong sound, easy to play. Highly recommend.

"Great Guitar; Problem Electronics"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall I'm pleased with the guitar but not so happy with the electronics.
Sound
The sound is different than what I am used to in a classical style guitar. Typically a Cedar/Rosewood guitar has a somewhat muted tonal quality. Not so on the C7-CE, and I welcome the difference in sound, which is more "crisp" - not bright but more pronounced - "livelier". And the low strings have a more acoustic steel string "wood" tonality which is not usually heard in a classical.
Features
I like the idea of the electronics, a piezo/mic combo with appropriate controls, and a built in tuner. Where this fails at is in two areas: 1) the guitar cord must be shoved all the way into the endpin jack past the point of where the actual connection would actually occur and even then the signal may cut out - I'd say it's a bad endpin jack; 2) the body of the electronics sometimes vibrates when the guitar is played - not so much a problem when playing live but when recording this gets picked up by the studio mic - not good!
Ease of Use
Action is excellent which makes the guitar easy to play, especially barre chords down on the first two/three frets.
Quality
Very good craftsmanship.
Value
Overall it's a good value. I'd say one-step-up from comparable guitars also built in China.
Manufacturer Support
Have not contacted.
The Wow Factor
It's a guitar. After 40+ years of playing the Wow Factor doesn't matter to me.

I'm new to classical guitar but I am happy with the cordoba I purchased. Sounds great unplugged and it stays in tune. Can't wait to get better and hear it amped up.

"GREAT GUITAR "
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Received it today and as soon as i pulled it ot of the box, i fell in love with the attention to detail in the guitar design. Flawless exterior and immaculate finish. However, i believe the bass notes are not as robust as i thought they should be for a spanish classical. I have a 2 year old c5 cordova and out of the box it sounded better. When i look inside the guitars to compare how they are braced, i noticed that the new c7 is slightly over braced than the c5. And true to spanish fan bracing, i prefer the torres fan bracing compared on the c5. The perpendicular bracing at the bottom of the top inside do not let it vibrate to it's fullest. One another thing that restricts the sound from is the thin plate directly under the bridge. This is not a true spanish fan bracing as advertised. All said, the guitar is an awesome deal at it's price range. zZounds has always been an excellent vendor of these guitars and their costumer service is second to none. I will always buy from them and although my critique may sound a little harsh, i did not compare this guitar to any other brand. That would be unfair to the cordova name.

"Surprised"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I love the sound and feel of this guitar. it's been so much easier to practice with than my other guitars because of it's size and weight. The sound is so much warmer than I am used to and I love it.
