C1 (3/4 Size)


The C1 ¾ is a small scale nylon string Spanish style guitar featuring a 615mm or 24.2” scale length. It belongs to the Protégé by Cordoba line, a series of high quality instruments created to provide aspiring young guitarists with a comfortable first guitar that’s easy to learn on and play. Offered in full and three-quarter sizes, the C1 features a spruce tops with mahogany back and sides, rosewood bridges and fingerboards, a Hauser-style wood-inlaid mosaic rosette, nickel tuning machines, and a high gloss polyurethane finish. Like all Cordoba instruments, the C1 3/4 features premium Savarez strings and an adjustable truss rod to ensure a straight neck for the life of the instrument. Also includes a two-way truss rod and a Cordoba gig bag.

The C1 ¾ comes strung with high tension Savarez guitar strings, which are meant to be used in standard E tuning only. For a guitar that is designed to withstand higher pitched tunings, please consider our C1M ¼, C1M ½, and Requinto 580.
