Cordoba C1M overview

  • 1Description

Designed for aspiring classical guitar players, the Protégé Series C1M from Cordoba is a full-size, nylon-string classical guitar with a natural, matte polyurethane finish. It utilizes a traditional, classical build with fan bracing, featuring a spruce top with mahogany back and sides. Aesthetics such as a traditional rosette and black ABS binding are also incorporated.

The guitar’s mahogany neck sports a C-shaped profile, with a 25.6” scale and a rosewood fingerboard with 19 frets, joining the body at the 12th fret. At the headstock, a set of gold tuning machines with pearl buttons secure the strings while a rosewood bridge anchors the strings to the body. An adjustable dual-action truss rod is also included to help keep the neck straight.

    Cordoba C1M reviews

    C1M Protégé Series Full-Size Nylon-String Classical Guitar (Natural Matte) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from High Quality and Competitively Priced This serves as backup to my main acoustic-electric. Given the price I was not expecting much but was pleasantly shocked upon first sighting and evaluation. Granted the finish is.....non-existent (?).....I mean there's no varnishing anywhere! So the neck surface took some getting used to. The acoustic sound is not as deep as my mainstay but quite usable for recording I find. That aside, construction is impeccable and string action (per truss rod I expect) truly impressive. Completely fits the bill for my classical-flamenco-folk playing style. The factory setup was spot-on. Of course the strings needed tuning and nylon takes a few weeks to acclimatize and hold. On that point the tuning machines are not the best quality but they do the job. Given the price, I'm not complaining. All said, this is truly adequate for serious learning and casual performance and recording.
