Cordoba C1 Protégé Series Nylon-String Classical Guitar (High Gloss)

$ 169.00

The Protégé Series C1 from Cordoba is a full-size nylon-string classical guitar with a high-gloss finish. It utilizes a spruce top with mahogany back and sides, and provides aesthetics such as a Hauser-style mosaic inlay around its soundhole and ABS binding. At the headstock, Cordoba gold tuning machines with pearl buttons secure the strings, providing a gear ratio of 14:1 and a string roller spacing of 35mm. A rosewood bridge anchors the strings to the body.

The guitar’s mahogany neck sports a 25.6” scale with a C-shaped profile, a rosewood fingerboard with 19 frets, and side marker inlays at the fifth, seventh, and ninth frets. The neck also includes a two-way adjustable truss rod. With these features, this guitar is quite suitable to those just learning how to play classical guitar.
