Happy with my purchase.

Comments about Cordoba C3M Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

I was looking for an affordable Classical guitar I could use to practice with on the couch after the kids to go bed. I needed something quieter than my steel string . I also wanted a "knock-around" guitar I could take camping and out for cookouts etc.

I was torn between the C3M and Yamaha's offerings in this price range. In the end I found a returned C3M at a discount and decided to pull the trigger on the Cordoba.

All in all I'm very happy with it. I see no issues with the build, the action was very nice (about 3.5 mm at the 12th fret) and everything was shipped how I'd expect. I ended up putting on some medium tension strings and actually prefer the sound with these.

My only complaint would be that the tuning machines are obviously not high-end and I find that each string is a little flat by the next day. This seems to be the case even after the strings have been on a few weeks. Once tuned up it stays in tune while playing though.

For the money it's a reasonable nice sounding guitar that easy to play. I also purchased the Gator GBE-Classic gig bag and it fits very well.

      Comments about Cordoba C3M Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

      I have played many nylon guitars. I have owned much more expensive guitars. I wanted a great sounding guitar that sounded great. I am pretty discriminating. The cedar top and the mahogany back and sides were the best!

      By John Widner

      from Kalamazoo, MI

      Comments about Cordoba C3M Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

      I could not be happier with this guitar. It plays smoothly and sounds full and rich. It looks great as well. Cordoba knows how to build guitars.
      I am blown away by how nice this guitar is.
      Has to be the best sounding acoustic guitar for the price.

      C3M Classical Guitar

      Comments about Cordoba C3M Acoustic Nylon String Classical Guitar:

      Great guitar
      I've purchased three guitars and a keyboard from Musicians Friend. Each time I've been very pleased with the product. Customer service has been superb as well.

      The C3M is an excellent classical (I own three) has great tone.What attracted me were some unique features, truss rod, slightly radiused fretboard, matt finish, solid cedar top.

      Very playable with great tone.
