The C5-CE SB gives the best-selling Cordoba C5-CE a fresh spin and a whole new vibe. It’s got everything you love about the original C5-CE, which has been a mainstay in the Iberia series for years, but adds the distinctly modern touch of a solid Sitka spruce top with sunburst finish. Mahogany back and sides and traditional Spanish fan bracing add to the warm, yet crisp tone of this contemporary take. A soft cutaway and Fishman Isys+ make this unique guitar perfect for gigging. Additional features include rosewood binding, bridge, and fingerboard, an all wood inlaid rosette, and stylish gold and pearl tuning machines.

All Cordoba guitars come with  Savarez strings.


Available with no cutaway or pickup (C5 SB), with a solid cedar top and natural finish (C5-CE), and with a solid cedar top and black finish (C5-CEBK).
