The C1 is a smaller body size nylon string Spanish style guitar featuring a 615mm or 24.2” scale length (3/4 size). It belongs to the Protégé by Cordoba line, a series of high quality instruments created to provide aspiring young guitarists with a comfortable first guitar that’s easy to learn on and play. Offered in full, half, three-quarter, and one-quarter sizes, the Protégé by Cordoba models feature the classic combination spruce tops with mahogany back and sides, rosewood bridges, rosewood fingerboards, a Hauser-style wood-inlaid mosaic rosette, nickel tuning machines, and a high gloss polyurethane finish. All Protégé by Cordoba guitars also include a two-way truss rod and a Cordoba gig bag.
The C1 comes strung with high tension Savarez guitar strings, which are meant to be used in standard E tuning only. For a guitar that is designed to withstand higher pitched tunings, please consider our C1 ¼, C1 ½, and Requinto 580.
