The newest arrivals to the shop, Cordoba Guitars began in 1997 and now has operations in California, Spain and China. Primarily a classical guitar company but they also make a fine ukulele. Start with the Iberia series, a C3, C5 or the rosewood C7. Classical guitars are the easiest to play and the wider necks are often easier for beginning adults to manage clean chord shapes. But don’t take our word for it, come by the shop and start playing!
Start here for a good quality yet affordable nylon string guitar! The C3 features a solid cedar top and mahogany back and sides, as well as a mahogany neck. The matte finish is subtle and classy, and a bone nut and saddle is a nice feature for a guitar under $200.
The Cordoba C5 features a solid cedar top with mahogany back, sides and neck, a bone nut and saddle and an upgraded set of tuning machines from the C3. The gloss finish is easy to keep clean and polished. Cedar is known for a warm and rich tone and this guitar doesn’t disappoint!
A big step up from the C5 with Indian rosewood back and sides, a tone wood that is known for a complex sound rich in overtones. Solid cedar top, bone nut and saddle. Also includes a matching Cordoba gig bag.
This fine guitar has the same specs as the C5 but with a soft cutaway and a Fishman Presys II preamp with EQ and tuner. Solid red cedar top, mahogany back and sides.
