Right at the $500 mark, this is a great guitar that can offer a lot of potential for the seasoned player. Like every Cordoba, the C7 is handcrafted in Portugal, and it brings the spirit and the quality of the brand at a great affordable price. I just love guitars with high level of craftsmanship and attention to the slightest detail, so the C7CE touches my heart in that matter. The value that this model offers guarantees it a spot in our “top 5 under 500” list, and by the looks of it, it is here to stay for a long long time.
Body and Neck
The C7 is an obvious upgrade to the C5; price wise and quality wise. The body comes with solid Canadian cedar top and Indian rosewood back and sides. The fingerboard is also made of rosewood and it comes with 19 frets placed on it. The full length of the scale of this guitar is 25 1/2”. The nut comes with the popular 2” width. The high-gloss thin-layered finish gives this guitar more styling points and it will protect it from moisture and other bad atmosphere factors. The guitar is inexpensive, but the detailed construction makes it look really attractive.
The quality of the sound that you receive per dollar spent is outstanding. The tone and the response of this instrument will satisfy even the seasoned player. The guitar is well balanced and provides good bass and more than а decent volume of the output. This git is more than any starter or casual player could ask for, it is in fact great even for live performances as long as the public is not very demanding. The C7 is a traiditional handmade nylon-string acoustic that has everything you could possibly ask from a $1000 instrument. The only time you will associate this model with the word “cheap” is when you are buying it. When you start playing on it, this a term that will never pop up in your mind, ever again.
The Cordoba C7CE is another model that offers plenty of value for the money spent. The stock strings that come with it are lively, the tone is rich and mellow, and the comfort of play is suitable for a premium fiddle. This guitar over delivers in every possible aspect, and the money it costs makes this a steal. It just sounds great and you will never regret buying this one, no matter how long you plan to use it.
