Product Description

One of the original models in Cordoba's Luthier Series, the Cordoba C10 is built with a solid Canadian cedar top with solid Indian rosewood back and sides. The C10 features a fan bracing pattern, which gives the center of the soundboard more surface area to vibrate and respond to the tension of the strings. A more responsive soundboard makes the guitar louder, and provides better tone. The C10 is the perfect choice for the serious classical guitarist, or for any player looking to upgrade to a concert-level instrument at an affordable price.

Like every guitar in the Luthier series, the C10 is built with Spanish heel construction, where the top of the guitar is attached to the neck, the sides are added next, and the guitar's body is sealed by the installation of the back. This construction feature allows the entire instrument to vibrate as one unified piece. The C10 has the neck shape and flat fingerboard characteristic of traditional classical guitars, and includes the added benefit of a two-way truss rod built into the neck. Cordoba recently expanded upon the C10, offering two new options that appeal to guitarists from all backgrounds: the C10 Parlor, which has a 7/8 size body shape and 50mm nut width, and the C10 Crossover, which is a full size guitar with a slim neck profile, radiused fingerboard, and 48mm nut width.

Aesthetic touches like the mother-of-pearl weave rosette inspired by a 1920's Domingo Esteso guitar add a touch of vintage elegance to this best-seller. Other premium features include an ebony fingerboard, rosewood bridge, high gloss finish, and Savarez Cristal Corum strings.
The C10 includes Cordoba's polyfoam case.

I was not able to try out this guitar in any stores, because none of them stocked it. However, I was able to try out the C9 and the C7, the two models below the C10. I was honestly really impressed with the C7, especially considering it's only $500. Then I found out that only the top is solid wood, and the sides and back are laminate. That explains the low price. If you want a good classical guitar but only want to spend $500, look no further than the Cordoba C7. It's an amazing value, and the guitar feels and sounds great.

Once you get to the C9 and C10, you are dealing with all solid wood construction, hence the higher prices. The C9 is cedar and mahogany, whereas the C10 is cedar and rosewood (For both, you have a choice of cedar or spruce; I went for the cedar and love it).

I tried out tons of classical guitars ranging from $200 to $5,000 and I can honestly say that there were only a handful of guitars that impressed me. One of them was a Loriente guitar, which was $2000. Other than that, it was the Cordoba guitars (C7 through C10), which are far less expensive than Loriente. My price limit was $1000, so I ordered the C10 after having tried out the C9, wondering if the extra cost would be worth it. I was not disappointed. This is an amazing guitar with an incredible sound (the low E string is amazing!), excellent lightweight construction, and a superior value. Definitely the best classical guitar for the price... no question about it.

.Honestly, for the price this is probably the best classical guitar you can get. It's a good bit less expensive that guitars with comparable specs but sounds as good if not better.The fact that the entire guitar is made out of solid wood was the winner for me. It's hard to get a guitar around or under 1000 dollars with all solid wood.The wood pieces are all of decent quality. The rosewood is perfect but there is a small imperfection in the cedar top. Nothing to detract from the tone. The ebony pieces are beautiful but the black is so full one wonders if it has been stained. Once again though, that doesn't detract from the tone. The rosette is quite beautiful and different from the ordinary style. The tone is very warm and full. The bass sound is huge but the treble notes lack a bit of volume. They are very sweet sounding however and a gentle touch on the bass strings can really draw them out. The top of my guitar seems to be really tuned to an E unlike my Taylor which definitely resonates on A. The guitar also has a couple of notes with really nasal qualities but I'm hoping that will dimish once it's more broken in.The guitar is an amazing value for the price. The cons, though I focused on them truly yield to the pros of this instrument. Great volume and projection, quality construction and appealing aesthetics.Fantastic value.

.In comparison to the similarly-priced Kremona/Orpheus Valley Fiesta FC, this guitar has similar woods, better fit-and-finish, and overall looks better. However, the Orpheus Valley is lighter, and sounds better. The truss rod in this guitar is unusual, and suspect. It tells me that the "Spanish Heel" neck may be just for show - that the neck may actually be attached violin-style. The internal braces are unusually tall, and the soundboard is stiff enough as to lack resonance. My Fiesta FC sounded like a well-tuned drum when tapped on, whereas the Cordoba has a quiet, dull thud. The polyurethane finish on this instrument is applied evenly, but thickly enough that it likely has a damping effect on the sound. The ebony fretboard shows signs of being worked by hand, and not expertly - there are gouges on the side. The nut and saddle appear to be a synthetic material, versus the real bone used in the Orpheus Valley. The back braces on this guitar appear to be of unnecessarily large mahogany, while the soundboard braces appear to be of low-grade spruce with wide grain and plenty of run-out. The bridge, back, sides, and headstock veneer are all of fairly nice-looking rosewood, though the sound indicates that it's too thick. The rosette is supposedly hand-inlaid mother of pearl, but appears in-person to be a factory-produced pearloid set into a black epoxy or other resinous material. It does, however, have 7 layers of real wood purfling inset on either side. The back strip purfling is perfectly mitered. The finish is super shiny - almost mirror-like, and just a step or two short of french polishing in appearances. The tuning machines are cheap and have black plastic buttons, versus the heavier metal and rosewood buttons on the Orpheus Valley. Overall, I'd guess that this guitar weighs about twice as much as the Orpheus Valley, has less volume and less resonance. The action was better on this guitar out of the box, but it also has taller frets. This guitar is pretty, but overbuilt, and smells like a factory. Since when do classical guitars need truss rods? There's visible glue squeeze-out inside the box (and it's shiny like CA glue).

Bottom line: buy this guitar if you want something pretty that will last a long time, and you're okay with just average sound and playability. There are no truly excellent guitars in this price range. However, if you're stuck to this budget, the Orpheus Valley Fiesta FC will give you twice the sound with half the looks at the same price. If you can stretch to about $2k in budget, you can likely find something made by a luthier who's just starting out, and will be 5x the guitar that this is.

.This was my first venture into the world of classical guitars and I'm very happy.
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 ; 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.
Another reviewer here states it is a heavy guitar, but I actually found it a very lightweight guitar and it 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 I intend have this adjusted for me.
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. It's a joy to play.
One thing of note : The rosette in NOT made from mother of pearl as stated in the Cordoba C10 specs list.
I asked Cordoba about this directly, and they said they made an error in their specs and promised to change it, so I hope they do. So I have to give 4/5 because of that, because they shouldn't be misleading their customers. Here is the official reply to me from Cordoba on Dec 3rd 2015 :

"Thank you for your interest in Cordoba Guitars!

The rosette on our Luthier Series guitars actually use pearloid instead of Mother-of-Pearl. Thank you for bringing this to our attention! I will have our webmaster edit the specifications to accurately reflect what the rosette is made of."
