The Protégé by Córdoba C1 ¾ is a small scale nylon string guitar that was designed to provide aspiring young musicians with a comfortable first guitar that’s easy to learn on and play. The C1 ¾ has a reduced 615mm (24.2”) scale length and features a spruce top with mahogany back and sides. Though this guitar is small, its high tension Savarez strings are tuned to a standard E. Additional features include a wood-inlaid mosaic rosette, nickel tuning machines, and a high gloss polyurethane finish. Like all Córdoba guitars, the C1 ¾ includes an adjustable truss rod for lifetime neck stability. Comes with a standard Córdoba gig bag.
