I once came across a really great Spruce C7 at a guitar shop. In the same shop I played a Picado 60, Ramirez Del Tiempo, Kenny Hill Player and a few other much more expensive guitars... then for the fun of it I picked up the C7 not expecting much and was just stunned to discover I liked it more than all the others. Was tempted to buy it right then and there for $500. It just had great balance, responsiveness, tone and playability. I owned a Cedar C7 before that was also great... so it's hard to say whether the one I tried was special in the bunch, or whether they are consistently good across the board. I've played a tonne of Cordoba guitars over the years and have generally found them to be really good value for the money when you get to play them in the right setting with strings that are not too worn.
