The C3M is one of our most popular entry-level nylon string guitars.
Lightweight and comfortable to play, the C3M features a solid cedar top, mahogany back and sides and a matte finish.
Handmade in the traditional Spanish style, its fan bracing results in a beautiful, warm, and well-balanced tone.
The C3M is hand-crafted and features a hand inlaid wooden rosette, rosewood fingerboard and bridge, Savarez strings and nickel plated tuning machines with pearl buttons.
The Córdoba C3M received a 92 out of 100 on Gearank’s ranking of best nylon string guitars priced under $1,000.
With a price tag under $500, the C3M is a perfect gift for the holidays–as seen by the guitar’s reviews.
“Customer reviews of the C3M often include phrases equivalent to ‘great value for the money.’ The positive reviews have come not only from people using this as a beginner guitar, but also more experienced players who wanted a low-cost couch or camping guitar.”
