Comments about Cordoba C3m Nylon String Classical Acoustic Guitar:

Cordoba is known for their high end quality nylon guitars and to see one for under $200 is great. Solid cedar top allows for a full and beautiful sound and it is very comfortable to play. If you are starting out on guitar than this is the perfect one that will last you for quite some time.

    Comments about Cordoba C3m Nylon String Classical Acoustic Guitar:

    The C3M is a great instrument for students and beginners to pick up. Anyone looking to learn how to play the classical guitar will get a fantastic experience from this guitar. Cordoba is a leading name in nylon string guitars and ukuleles and the quality is always there. Once the strings are set this plays beautifully and has a rich dynamic tone for a budget priced instrument. I'd recommend this for beginners and students alike.

      Comments about Cordoba C3m Nylon String Classical Acoustic Guitar:

      To be able to own a guitar of this quality for under $200.00 is really remarkable. The Cordoba C3M is a handcrafted guitar with a traditional Spanish flare. The solid cedar and mahogany used to build this instrument lend the guitar to speak very clearly while still maintaining the warm tone quality needed. The neck also feels super comfortable, even for those with small hands! Great deal and a great guitar!

        I just got a Cordoba C3M after trying many guitars. This was by far the best choice among several guitars priced above the C3M. Last saturday I brought it to play with my friends and they all were blown away by the sound and the look of this guitar. I am in love with it, love everything about it, the sound, the feel and just love the matte finish that makes it quite unique. Thank you Cordoba!

            Comments about Cordoba C3m Nylon String Classical Acoustic Guitar:

            The C3M has exquisite craftsmanship and great tone. This guitar plays and sounds superb ! The traditional neck profile and silky fast finish is a perfect harmony for creating the finest of Classical music.
            I've played many different types of Classical guitars over the years and I've never got this much out of a guitar that cost so little.
            I honestly bought this to just "play" around on but it has found a niche into being one of my most used instruments of mine to play..
            I really feel that this guitar nails the concept of what I was looking for but for a much more reasonable price...

              I just started taking guitar lessons this year, and needed a new full sized acoustic classical guitar. Cordoba is a great brand that I trust very much. I am pleased with the price of the instrument and the quality of sound. Great products!

                Comments about Cordoba C3m Nylon String Classical Acoustic Guitar:

                I needed to replace a guitar I had been using with one that played well, and would be inexpensive enough to not worry about dings and such at work. After playing several different guitars at and above this price range, I kept coming back to the Cordoba C3-M. Nice warm basses, bright enough trebles without being "brassy", and great action. Sounds as nice as guitars costing more than twice as much, without the fear of ruining a $500 guitar. This is my new favorite!

                Note: has a "satin" finish, not high gloss, so ErgoPlay and other supports that utilize suctions cups will not attach securely.
