Key Features
  • Solid Canadian Cedar Top

A concert-level instrument in a high-gloss finish, the Luthier Series C9 by Cordoba is a nylon-string classical guitar. This version of the C9 offers a solid Canadian Cedar top with solid mahogany back and sides. This Cedar variation of the C9 tends to elicit a more full-bodied, rounded sound over its peer—a C9 fashioned with a European Spruce top. A fan bracing pattern lends the soundboard’s center a large surface area, which, when vibrating and responding to your strings’ tension, facilitates a loud and projecting sound.

Cordoba C9 Overview

A concert-level instrument in a high-gloss finish, the Luthier Series C9 by Cordoba is a nylon-string classical guitar. This version of the C9 offers a solid Canadian Cedar top with solid mahogany back and sides. This Cedar variation of the C9 tends to elicit a more full-bodied, rounded sound over its peer—a C9 fashioned with a European Spruce top. A fan bracing pattern lends the soundboard’s center a large surface area, which, when vibrating and responding to your strings’ tension, facilitates a loud and projecting sound.

Its mahogany neck, measuring 25.6” in scale, is outfitted with a rosewood fingerboard and set to the neck in a Spanish heel joint. 19 frets are provided in total, with side-position inlays at the fifth, seventh, and ninth fret for easier visual orientation. The 4mm truss rod is accessible for neck adjustments, and a bone nut has been employed to bolster sustain and resonance on open strings.

You’ll find strings anchored to the body by means of an Indian rosewood bridge, and at the headstock, strings have been secured by Cordoba Premium Gold Tuning Machines with black, ebony-style buttons. These machines sport a gear ratio of 14:1 for precise tuning, giving you a string-roller spacing of 35mm.

Also, you’ll note accents that add to the instrument’s flavor, such as Indian rosewood binding, six-ply colored-wood top purfling, three-ply maple and ebony purfling throughout the back and sides, and a rosette inspired by a 1920s Domingo Esteso design. To ensure your instrument stays protected when not in use, a Cordoba polyfoam case is included.
