I even had light gauge on at one time. Cordoba claims the C10 sounds best with the Savs it comes with. I've found it ain't necessarily so. Also found the action a bit high when new. I did file down the saddle in small increments (making sure I have another bone saddle if I mess up). If you must alter the bow of the fingerboard using the truss rod, truss me, gently make only 1/8 " (or, perhaps 2-3 degree) or less turns retuning for each change. It's a 'big feeling' guitar which may take time to bond with. I have and really enjoy it now.......M
I would recommend you Savarez 500 CJ first if you feel the string tension too high then 500 CR or Augustine Imperial Red. You just try, you will find better solution.
I also would like to recommend you to use "Tonerite" to "open sound" quickly. It is also helpful for Córdoba C9/10 in playability.
