Fantastic C7 in Louisville

Post by Keith » Sat Feb 16, 2019 5:25 pm

I stopped by GC today and played a Cordoba C7 which was a very nice guitar--great sound and playability. If anyone is in the market I believe you can go to a GC and have it shipped to your area and you have a trial period. Just thought I would throw it out there for anyone in the market. It is the only C7 in the store so it should be easy to identify.
be true to the one you love but have many flings with different guitars

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.

I am also very pleased with my C7. But as a bit of a newb, I have a question: how can i tell if mine is Cedar or Spruce?

A sure way is to shine a torch light to the soundhole in a dark room. A spruce top will show the bracing clearly, whereas a cedar top will hardly show anything. Even with my "dollar store" LED torch light, i.e. with white light, not the usual incandescent light, I can still see the lattice bracing of my C12 spruce.

Most C-7's are the darker cedar, the spruce is pretty rare. R
