I really like this guitar because:
The tone is mellow, what you expect form cedar, but also full and the notes have "depth" to them. It has good projection due to it being a full classical body, unlike most other crossover guitars, which have shallower bodies and thinner bodies.
The neck is really comfortable, 48mm nut, so I can thumb wrap on chords, but 60mm string spacing at the bridge means I can fingerpick really easily without my fingers hitting the adjacent strings.
The neck has a nice radius for ease of barre chording.
The finish is well done and there is no glue run-out or sharp edges. The whole guitar vibrates when is being played.
This is the second crossover I have tried, first I tried the C10, but I prefer cedar. I have read in many places that these Cordoba crossovers will need fret work to get them perfect, this was definitely the case for the C10 I tried. But, this C9, I was lucky and the nut, saddle and the frets are all good, only a few tall frets which are past the 12th fret. It is obvious that to get the frets level, the factory was a bit heavy with leveling all the frets, so they have lost a bit of their original curve.
The problem with this guitar is that it seems to have a loose brace, which makes a buzz noise coming from the bridge and the top around the bridge. You can hear it when playing and tapping the top. To keep the guitar this would have to be fixed.
Cheap for what you get, great sound and tone, but they may come with problems.
