Design Features

Construction

The C9 is built with a traditional Spanish fan bracing and Spanish heel construction to allow for a responsive soundboard and full vibration throughout the entire body. The punchy midrange of the mahogany body accentuates the woodiness of the overall tone. The C9 has a C-shape neck and flat fingerboard characteristic of traditional classical guitars, but also includes modern features such as a two-way truss rod for long-term neck stability.

Aesthetics

Delicate aesthetic touches like its 1920s-inspired pearloid rosette add a touch of vintage elegance. Other stand-out features such as a rosewood fingerboard and bridge, red purfling, high gloss finish, Savarez Cristal Corum strings, and a lightweight polyfoam case makes this a Córdoba best-seller and a guitar you’ll play for a lifetime.
