Every guitar is given a professional setup and a thorough 19-point inspection including playing through every note, adjusting saddle & nut heights, checking neck relief, fret ends, tuning mechanisms, finish, and more. You can rest assured that your guitar will be flawless or we'll replace it or refund it and cover all shipping charges. Also, all guitars at XGuitars are kept at the perfect humidity and temperature to prevent hidden cracks, sharp frets, warped necks, etc.

The Cordoba C10 Parlor has been discontinued by Cordoba.  They still offer the C9 Parlor.

The C10 Parlor is ideal for guitarists looking for the comfort and ease of playability that a smaller instrument provides, while retaining the sweet, warm tone created by all-solid wood construction. Built with a Canadian cedar top and Indian rosewood back and sides, the C10 Parlor has a reduced 7/8 body size and 50mm nut width. (Click here to hear the pronunciation of "Córdoba".)

Construction: The C10 Parlor is built with a traditional Spanish fan bracing and Spanish heel construction to allow for a responsive soundboard and full vibration throughout the entire body. The C10 Parlor has a C-shape neck and flat fingerboard characteristic of traditional classical guitars, but also includes modern features such as a two-way truss rod for long-term neck stability.

Aesthetics: Delicate aesthetic touches like the 1920’s inspired pearloid rosette add a touch of vintage elegance, making this a guitar you’ll treasure for a lifetime. Comes in a lightweight Córdoba polyfoam case.

Wonderful guitar

I have had the C-10 Parlor for about a month now and am very happy with the guitar. My only other instrument is a 650/52mm spruce over walnut so the overall feel is quite different. At first I was a little put off by the "stiffness" of the overall feel and sound but a couple of weeks of play made a world of difference. The size is just so comfortable for me, the kind of guitar you want to constantly pick up and play. The sound just blossomed with playing time. You can hear the tone and feel improve with every session. I did change to normal tension strings in order to "loosen" it up but now can easily go to any gauge. Workmanship is perfect. Setup, inspection, packaging all perfect. Definitely a keeper. XGuitars and Geoff were great.

After several weeks of researching reviews and listening to sound clips of "small scale" classical guitars, I ordered a C10 Parlor Cedar from XGuitars with high expectations. Both the instrument and the service that Mr. Ferdon provided exceeded those expectations. The sound of the C10 Parlor is very rich in all ranges, and the sustain is amazing. Just as important, the set-up and delivery were flawless. Great guitar, truly outstanding service.

C10 Parlor

Transitioning from steel to nylon, I looked at a lot of reviews before deciding on this guitar. I'm happy I made the right decision. The shorter scale and smaller body fits my frame perfectly. Although my nails are not yet what they need to be, I'm surprised by the volume and the tone from the instrument. Fit and finish is beautiful. I agree with the other reviewer that you can spend hundreds more and not have a finer guitar. Delivery and set up was perfect as well.

Cordoba C10 Parlor plus Xguitar Service

Purchased a new Cordoba C10 Parlor from Xguitars and I have to say it has exceeded my expectations. I have searched long and hard for a good sounding short scale guitar playing many models in a price ranges all the way up to $4500. This Cordoba is easily the best bang for the buck. Plays beautifully throughout its full range, great sustain, plenty of volume, level across all 6 strings. It sounds great. In addition, I had some specific wishes as far as set up goes. Mr. Ferdon adjusted the guitar perfectly to my liking. I can't say enough about the great service I got from Xguitars. I give the Cordoba C10 Parlor and Xguitars my highest recommendation.
