The C10 is an all-solid Spanish style guitar featuring either a Canadian cedar or European spruce top with Indian rosewood back and sides. Handmade in a small boutique workshop, it's the perfect choice for serious classical guitarists, or any player looking to upgrade to a concert-level instrument at an affordable price.

The C10 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 solid Indian rosewood back and sides provide a fat low-end, with a bright, crisp treble response and complex overtones. The C10 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.

Delicate aesthetic touches like its 1920s-inspired pearloid rosette add a touch of vintage elegance. Other stand-out features such as a rosewood fingerboard and bridge, red purfling, high gloss finish, Savarez Cristal Corum strings, and a lightweight polyfoam case makes this a Córdoba best-seller and a guitar you’ll play for a lifetime.

Love My Cordoba C10!

The guitar is a beauty. It looks gorgeous, with a mirror finish and made with cedar soundboard (top), rosewood sides and back, mahogany neck, and ebony fretboard. It has quality nylon strings and very high quality tuning machines. The guitar is extremely well manufactured--made in China--and the overall craftsmanship is impeccable.

The Cordoba C10 is much easier to play than either of my other guitars--one a luthier handcrafted model--and has a lovely full and mellow sound with fuller bass but better balanced middle and treble, and produces about 3-5 times more volume.

The setup is also very well done. Serious guitar players will appreciate the difference made by appropriate adjustments of a small fraction of an inch in fretboard width, nut height, scale length, and "action" (height of strings above fretboard), and the absolutely flat alignment of the tops of the frets. The slightly wider fretboard makes finding and isolating a string easier, and the fret height and action makes getting clean notes and barre's easier.

Serious guitarists will also appreciate the very well designed and built "body" to the guitar, acoustically engineered bracing of the soundboard, and very accurate placement of the bridge. The C10 has all that, while looking like a piece of extremely fine woodworker's (luthier's) art!

The supplied case is a substantial soft-shell case featuring a black cordura exterior, thick semi-rigid foam padding, a burgundy plush interior, zipper closing, shoulder/backpack straps, slender exterior zip pocket, and lidded interior pocket for holding accessories. A pro guitarist friend said "Ooooo! Very nice. That case is very interesting. I like it!

Yeah, I really like my new C10 guitar. "More fun than Christmas!! " is how I described it to far-flung family. However, now any technical or musical goofs I make in playing have no excuses--I need to up my playing level to match the guitar!

Can’t stop playing!

This is a truly wonderful instrument. Looks gorgeous and it’s a true joy to play it. The sound is warm and deep with lots of richness.
Geoff was very helpful through the purchasing process and the shipping was fast. Would highly recommend.
