Comments about Cordoba C12 CD Classical Guitar:

I've played classical guitar for over 40 years and I have either owned or played guitars from just about every country that makes them. I was in the market for a new one and wasnt sure what I wanted. I play coffee houses and similar places. i had been using my 1970 garcia (cedar over walnut) and a 2010 cordoba c-5 (cedar over mahogony). while trolling musicians friend i saw this c-12 limited (dedar over madegascar rosewood). After some research, I bought the last one they had. Lucky me!!! this is, by far one of the best sounding, easiest playing guitar i have ever played. (and it smells good too). I am so glad I decided to buy it. I've had it just over a month and I havent even touched the other guitars, except to fiill the humidifors. Don't let the country of origin put you off..... if you are in the market, at least play a cordoba before you decide. A simply great guitar and musicans friend made the purchase easy with a good price and fast free shipping...
