It’s hard to name that one person who’s never played a guitar, or at least, wanted to. Hobbyists and occasional guitar players are in abundance, but those handful who are in dire need of a good acoustic guitar will certainly like what we’ve prepared.
The C5 is one of Córdoba's flagship models and a top seller worldwide. Perfect as a first nylon-string guitar, this lightweight model is built with a solid Canadian cedar top and mahogany back and sides to produce a warm, well-rounded tone with beautiful sustain. Handmade in the traditional Spanish style, the C5's carved headstock, hand-inlaid wood rosette, Indian rosewood binding, Savarez strings, and glossy PU finish result in a guitar that truly stands out from all other entry-level options. A lightweight adjustable truss rod is built into the neck for stability. Available in Natural with solid Red Cedar top or Sunburst finish with solid Sitka spruce top.
Handmade in Traditional Spanish Style
The Cordoba C5 is a fine value in a nylon-string acoustic guitar. The handmade C5 sports a mahogany back and sides, with a cedar top, for rich tone with a lively presence. The solid mahogany neck provides excellent sustain and detail. Whether you're a beginner or experienced player, the Cordoba C5 is a great value. And with the gloss polyurethane finish, Indian rosewood binding, and a stylish rosette, the Cordoba C5 looks as good as it plays.
Cordoba C5 Nylon-string Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
The Cordoba C5 doesn't skimp on construction. The C5 features traditional handmade classical guitar design, including the solid cedar top (choice top wood for classical guitars) and Spanish-style fan bracing. Fan bracing is preferred for classical guitars over lattice bracing, as it allows the guitar's top to vibrate more freely while still providing evenly balanced tone.
While the Cordoba C5 is inexpensive, Cordoba did not sacrifice quality materials. The mahogany back and sides set a powerful tonal foundation for the solid cedar top, giving you the right blend of deep richness and brilliance. The neck is also solid mahogany, for optimum transfer of string energy to the cedar top. A rosewood fingerboard and bridge complete the elegant look.
Great look, great playability
The Cordoba C5 is a joy to simply look at, from the detailed rosette inlay and Indian rosewood binding to the gold tuners with pearl buttons. And you'll love how the gloss finish shows off the mahogany body and cedar top. But looks aren't everything - the C5 was designed with playability in mind, and the great look is just the icing on the classical cake.

- Product quality and service is very satisfying
As Cordoba being one of the finest classical guitar builders among all the great classical guitar makers, it comes with beautiful instruments. Precisely c5 being one of its flagship model, if someone wants to upgrade from beginner to intermediate level or beyond ,C5 is perfect instrument. It’s hand crafted art makes this instrument more genuine and class instrument. Note clarity and sustain is beautiful and sound is bit amped as compare to other guitar of its same price point. As being classical player, I can conclude that C5 is very natural in its sound and have a bit amped and balanced sound ,note clarity and note sustain character like of its higher end C9,C12 makes it more worthy. So apart from instrument ,service from Musikshack as the only recognised dealer of Cordoba in India is authentic and is very responsible towards customer. Thank you.
- Cordoba c5 Natural
A beautiful instrument. High action but still comfortable to play as the bridge setting is low. Pure classical guitar but one can play flamenco by sanding off the saddle. Ezcellent and promt service by Music Shack.

- One of the best purchases I have ever made
I purchased my first classical guitar, a Cordoba C5 from here. Since it is quite expensive, I was not sure about it and was considering other options from a lower range. I called up the store to check for the availability of everything I was interested in. But after discussing it with the store incharge, Astor, I finally decided on it. He was very helpful in providing all kinds of information on different models and also their online store.
My order was shipped the very day I paid for it and arrived in the next couple of days. I also got major discounts due to the online purchase. The guitar was packed very well and was sent via Bluedart courier services. I was very impressed with their post-payment assistance because they kept me updated throughout until I received and unpacked the guitar.
Unfortunately, I broke one of the strings while tuning it for the first time. But Astor was very kind and prompt to send me another set of strings, free of charge. It wasn’t the same as what the guitar coms strung with, but another brand. He also provided me with a contact to help me re-string it in my home city.
All in all, I am extremely pleased with my purchase and the assistance I received from Music Shack. I would recommend anyone to buy their music requirements from here.
