A very nice classical guitar indeed

James2603, 26.11.2015
This was my first venture into the world of classical guitars, having always played electrics previously. I gig with electrics, but the classical guitar is only intended for home use.

My first impressions on taking the Cordoba C10 guitar out of its nicely made plush velvet lined and lightweight polyfoam case, was its high quality fit and finish.

Four types of wood in use here ; Canadian Cedar top, Indian Rosewood sides and back, mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard.
Excellent book matching to the Rosewood on the back of the guitar, complemented by a wood purfling stripe down the middle and base, and further purfling to the top and sides.

The finish is beautifully even and highly glossy. Faultless in fact, and the neck heal joint and headstock carving is lovely.

It is a very lightweight guitar and plays beautifully too. A very warm sound with excellent resonance and good sustain from the evenly fitted frets. The action is possibly set a little high, but that can easily be rectified.
It also holds tune very nicely once the Savarez strings are fully stretched, so the prettily decorated gold Cordoba tuners are certainly doing their job well.

Some will turn their noses up at an American brand having many of their guitars produced in China, including this one, even at this price level, but where it's produced doesn't matter. It's care and quality of manufacture and above all, playability which are most important, and these guitars prove this.

I am very happy indeed with this guitar, it is a joy to hold and play and I would definitely recommend anyone looking at classical guitars to perhaps consider a Cordoba guitar.

The only minor criticism I have (and it is only minor), is that Cordoba claim the Rosette pattern to be made of genuine Mother Of Pearl, but upon close inspection it looks much more like some form of pearloid. It just doesn't catch the light like genuine Mother Of Pearl. There is Mother of Pearl on the rosewood bridge piece, but not the Rosette.
So in that respect, I think the people at Cordoba are being a little bit naughty.

There is also a very subtle whiff of manufacturing glue still wafting up from the sound hole, but I am hoping that will soon disappear to let the scent of Cedar come to the fore!

Excellent

Mohamed Assaoud, 26.03.2014
The guitar is great, great sound. Also note that it comes well presented, the case includes a tablet that absorbs moisture, and the wood of the guitar is very well cared for. It is the logical taking into account its price. Advisable
