The C5 isn't going to be any better than your C3M. So no dice there. The Rodriguez can be had for 200 dollars used, not a bargain, there are several for sale. The Kremona is OK, but not a bargain. Since you are dealing with guitar center, why don't you have them order you in a Lucero LC200S. The fret work is better than the Cordoba, and also has a truss rod. Solid Cedar top. Laminated rosewood back and sides. 52mm nut. And they come practically set up. I bought two of them, one for me as a travel guitar, and the other for my son and his wife to take lessons on.
The action on both came at 3.5mm/3.2mm at the twelfth. And the intonation was spot-on. I got mine on sale at $200 brand new. They are regularly $299.00. But you can snag one for less with a coupon. Fit and finish is much better than the Cordobas, or the Rodriguez IMO. They are great.
Thanks a lot for the respond it’s extremely helpful. I’ve honestly neglected the Luceros because I have heard them be praised as much as say, cordobas, although they do seem to come set up well.
I checked out the Manuel Rodriguez from my friend and honestly it’s a great sounding guitar, but the construction seems a little poor. I don’t know if the bridge was just placed too towards the soundhole but the intonation On high E is screwed. The octave of high E was showing up sharp.
I do enjoy a nice tone. I do gig and when I do flamenco my gk pro is perfect, but do you think a Lucero would fare well for performing classical repertoire?
