The all-solid Cordoba C12 Classical Guitar is one of Cordoba's most high-end and modern guitars.
Available with either a solid Canadian cedar or European spruce top with Indian rosewood back and sides, the C12's lattice bracing and raised fingerboard are elements that make this model truly stand out from the rest. The delicately braced top provides rich tones with a lively presence and the raised fingerboard makes accessing upper frets a breeze. The C12 is a treasure to last a lifetime with stunning decorative elements such as its flamed maple center wedge on the back, matching maple binding, and hand-inlaid 1920s-inspired pearloid rosette. Comes inside a hardshell Cordoba humidified archtop case (weight: 9lbs, 3oz). (Click here to hear the pronunciation of "Córdoba".)

Just received. Too early for more than stating I'm really pleased with sound and feel. Circle back in a year.
The Cordoba C12 is a complete guitar, just the one I was looking for: Sufficient volume, well balanced between the highs and lows not to mention a good looking instrument. The guitar is not as lightweight as others guitars I have played; but, the instrument is very new and is expected to become lighter with time. Geoff from XGuitars is an experienced musician and well versed with classical guitars which is so important when buying an instrument, when the other person has not been familiarized. Thank you, Geoff!
The Cordoba C12 Cedar has a wonderfully powerful and round sound. I was glad to see the raised fingerboard is about 2mm higher than the C12 Spruce I bought a year ago. Concert level guitar for a great price.
Beautiful guitar with balanced tone and good projection. I’m still a beginner but setup seemed right on. packed well and received promptly.
Just when you think nothing can beat Amazon you come across someone like Geoff and XGuitars. Everything about my purchase exceeded my expectation. As promised the guitar is flawless and every bit of information on the website is accurate. The fact that an expert like Geoff personality inspects you’re product before shipping it to you is what gave me the confidence to purchase this level of guitar by mail. I purchased this guitar for my 8 year old daughter to upgrade from her cordoba coco mini that she plays fairly well. I look forward to doing business and asking questions to Geoff in the future. I don’t usually take the time to review products but after this truly enjoyable experience I would feel guilty if I didn’t!
