I was looking for a nylon string guitar for playing some classical and some jerry reed, atkins style of music, many people seem to go for the cordobas, any thoughts?

I have a C7 that I have had for about a year and I am very pleased with it. My teacher who plays a $14,000 luthier model thinks the C7 is worth twice the price. I would choose it again in a heartbeat.

Another vote for the C-10. After doing as much research as I could stand, I bought a used C -10 cedar on line. I was so pleased I bought another one online, but this time I bought a C-10 spruce. Could not be happier with my decisions. The cedar and the spruce are very different as I suspected before buying. :D

Hey Eddie, was curious as to what differences you've found with your Spruce and Cedar C10s?

An alternative to the Cordoba is Kremona, which is made in Bulgaria. I recently purchased a 3/4 sized guitair from them and found it to be better than I expected.

My C7 sounds great. I'm searching for another guitar, maybe C10 or Yamaha CG-TA.

Another vote here for the C7. When I was shopping around a few years ago this model beat the rest in (maybe 5 or 6 others in several different brands) in terms of playability, weight and sound quality. It was even superior to the more expensive guitars 1000AUD+. I ended up buying the C7 for 720AUD, a bargain.

I had a bit of a shock when i saw the price of this one....
[Mod note: Commercial link removed. (Cordoba Master Series Hauser Natural at Guitar Village for £4,499)]

Rob
The MSRP is $4800...

So - would this still be considered a "cheap" guitar, in the guitar world? :wink:

Dumb question maybe, but I'm trying to get a feel for perceptions.
Well, my perception is along the lines of "Jeeps !! You could get a real guitar for that money!! " Marketing is all to some people.
... no letters please. :lol:

It's really hard to get a sense of the playing field the first time you step on it.

The other day I asked what must have been a "duh" question regarding an acoustic electric guitar. Having never even held an electric guitar of any kind (or used a pickup, etc.) prior, it wasn't...lol..

2018 Cordoba C10 crossover
2018 Ibanez GA5TCE
...and miscellaneous bits and pieces.
