Great for 19th Century Guitar Music

By Frank Grigonis

from Ohio

Comments about Cordoba Dolce 7/8 Size Classical Guitar:

Most classical guitars today have very wide necks and a standard 650mm scale length. This wasn't always the case; in the 19th Century, 630mm scale (and less) instruments were standard. Sor, Guilliani, etc. played instruments of less than 650mm; in fact, some of their pieces are unplayable for most players on 650mm instruments--so really the Dolce is not just for younger players or female students. The larger classicals of today are largely the result of Segovia and his preferred instruments, but Segovia had LARGE hand and had to fill LARGE concert halls. It's a shame that there are so few instruments available today of less than 650mm. The dolce also sounds pretty good for the money. It would be nice if it had a saddle that compensated for the 3rd string as budget Yamaha instruments do, but all in all, the Dolce is a fine instrument for the money.

sweet classical for the price

By Deborah Gilmore

from Southern U.S.

Comments about Cordoba Dolce 7/8 Size Classical Guitar:

Excellent value, good looks, acceptable sound and good action. The only reason I did not award a 10 rating - the unfinished, raggedy bit of wood on the bridge. Does not affect the sound and can be sanded down.
After falling on hard times and having to pawn yet another guitar a few years ago, I decided to jump back in with a classical guitar. I have owned both flat tops and electric guitars but never a classical guitar (that I remember - the sixties - well, you know...)

I had to do a lot of research online; my area of the country isn't very hip to classical guitars and if a store here carries classical guitars at all (doubtful), they have one lonely model. The local big box guitar store carries a few more classical guitars, hangs them high and are too busy to help you.

My criteria was a solid cedar top classical that was comfortable to play. The Crdoba Dolce seemed to fit the bill.

The guitar is lovely. It took a few days for the strings to settle in. Great sustain for the price. The projection is perfect for playing around the house, which is really all I need. Compared to my recently-purchased 1970 Garcia guitar, the Crdoba Dolce is brighter sounding. The Garcia has new D'Addario medium strings and the Dolce has new Savarez strings (not sure what tension - factory installed), so that could be one of the reasons. The action is low enough. The well-padded gig bag that came with the guitar is excellent.

Even though I have stiff "hobbit" hands and thought the 7/8 scale would be a plus, I still feel more comfortable playing the old Garcia, which I believe is 660mm scale length, whereas the Crdoba Dolce is 630mm with a smaller nut. You mileage may vary. The Dolce may be perfect for you.

The guitar has an interesting smell, a mixture of cedar and chemical (perhaps the lacquer finish?). The cedar smell is nice; the lacquer, not so much. Good deal though! I just purchased an additional classical guitar - a Kremona Orpheus Valley Sofia, so it will be interesting to compare the two once it arrives.

All in all I would say the Crdoba Dolce is a good choice for a classical guitar in the price range.
All-round decent quality. The bridge had a rough, splintered area on it. That was the only thing that kept it from getting a 10 quality rating. I'm sure it could be easily sanded and smoothed down.
As far as tone and looks go, an excellent value for the money. This is a good starter classical guitar. Don't buy a dirt cheap laminate top! Get this guitar if the slightly smaller scale would be a plus for you.

Comments about Cordoba Dolce 7/8 Size Classical Guitar:

I got the Cordoba Dolce guitar about a month ago.It is an outstanding guitar.;
Dont let the 7/8 size turn you off by thinking it wont deliver a good soundI have three other name brand nylon string guitars that are full size (standard size) and they all have solid cedar topsI did a side by side sound test and to my surprise the Dolce has a louder volume and a much nicer tone than any of them, I kid you not!!The slighter smaller body is more comfortable to hold. The smaller nut-width of 50mm in comparison to the standard 52mm makes it easier to play and the 24.75 scale length which is the same scale length as Gibson electric guitars but, shorter than the standard scale length on a classical guitar, is a joy for smaller hands like mine.The craftsman ship is flawless and the tuning keys keep the strings in tune for a long while. It comes with a padded gig bag which is a bit big for this guitar. It holds a standard size classical guitar in it comfortably I'm thinking Cordoba Company decided not to design a perfect-size bag for this guitar in order to keep the cost down.
I guess if the looseness bothers you, then you can line the bag with more soft foam padding.
Cordoba websites spec for this guitar says there are dot inlays on 3, 5, 7, 9and 12 frets but mine came with only three dots, on 5th
, 7th
and 9

I bought this guitar on sale, but its also worth every penny of the regular price.

Tunning Pegs Broke on First Tune

By Glenn Woytowich

from Undisclosed

Comments about Cordoba Dolce 7/8 Size Classical Guitar:

the first time i tuned the guitar, i heard a pop. At first i thought it was the string settling in, then I noticed that turning the tuning peg wasn't ajusting the tension of the string. That was becasue the peg cracked down the middle. This has happened to 4 of the 6 pegs now and I am confident they are using cheep materials to make their guitars.

Cordoba nylon guitar

By Garry Hullings

from Northeast US

Comments about Cordoba Dolce 7/8 Size Classical Guitar:

If what you want is a good, playable guitar for low bucks go for it. You won't be dissapointed unless you don't take care of it and leave it in your car in cold and heat.
I'm playing it right now. It plays and sounds great. I'll have to let you know how well the bridge holds up over time. I've already played it at a gig the second day i had it. Stays in tune nicely travels well.
I have other high end (expensive) guitars but I have noticed the quality of less costly instruments has gone way up lately. This is a good example of what I mean. I was ready to spend more of my hard earned cash but I'm glad I did not. I have yet to play a bad sounding Cordoba.
Best deal for the dollar I've found in a long time.

Exceeded my expectations!

By John-Paul Martinez

from Las Vegas

Comments about Cordoba Dolce 7/8 Size Classical Guitar:

This guitar makes me want to practice. Plan on getting the guitar professionally setup, if you do not know how to do this yourself. To be honest, out of the box, this guitar does not sound good, but once its set up, it sounds wonderful. I will be spending many years with this guitar.
This is a basic classical guitar with very little frill. The strings it came with are very good strings (Savarez) and I will be use these for future replacements. The wood, especially the neck, is nice with a smooth finish. This were no manufacturing flaws. Yes, the 7/8 size makes a huge difference in playability.
The quality is very good. The guitar is solidly built. In this regard, I can't think of a single thing that was wrong with it. I did lower the bridge to improve playability, but that is a setup issue, not the quality of the build. The sound is better than my 30 year old Framus.
This is an excellent value. If I lose this guitar I will buy another one just like it.
