C1M 1/2


The C1M 1/2 is the perfect 1/2 size nylon string guitar for any aspiring guitarist. Part of the Protege by Cordoba line, the C1M 1/2 was developed to provide young players with a comfortable, great sounding first guitar at an affordable price. Drawing on generations of Spanish guitar-making tradition, we carefully chose quality materials for incredible sound, and prioritized comfort, playability, and attractive aesthetics to create truly inspiring instruments with which students can effectively learn and grow.

Every Protégé C1M 1/2 model is built with the combination of a spruce top and mahogany back and sides, a rosewood bridge and fingerboard, traditional-style mosaic rosette, gold tuning machines, and a matte polyurethane finish. Like all Cordoba instruments, C1M models feature premium Savarez strings and an adjustable truss rod to ensure a straight neck for the life of the instrument. Offered in full, half, three-quarter, and one-quarter sizes.


Also available in full, 1/4 and 3/4 sizes.
