Definitely go with the C5. You tried this one and you liked it. No risks involved. I've played a few almansa guitars and was very underwhelmed with them. The C5 you'll find is more responsive, better volume, better playability, better clarity, better tone. They are mode widely available and easier to return if you're not happy with it in the end.tataocb wrote:2. Which one would you recommend? Should I take the risk and buy the Alsambra without trying it first? Or go with the Cordoba C5, which I have tried, heard, and like the sound? The Cordoba C5 would not be the one I tried as I would order a new one online. So in a sense, I will not have played the actual guitar until I get it delivered.
On the other hand, it IS an inexpensive guitar, one that I find to be an exceptional value in all other respects. I've played several of them and never noticed fret ends sticking out, although that can happen to any guitar under conditions of improper humidification. The fret ends are not as luxuriously finished as on more expensive guitars, but a few minutes with a file can fix that.Norman2 wrote:Hi Tatoocb, Have you taken a good look at the C5, The bridge doesn't even have a finish. And if you pass your fingers beside the fingerboard you
will notice all the frets that stick out. You will be returning this soon and getting a C7, Good luck and regards
