Founded in 1997, Córdoba is a leader and innovator in nylon-string guitars. Designed by a team of renowned luthiers, the guitars are played by an international, growing, eclectic group of talented musicians. Building on a history of bohemian creativity and expert craftsmanship, Córdoba incorporates the musician’s love for individuality into each guitar. From the traditional to the ground breaking, Córdoba guitars represent the history and future of guitar making.
Cordoba seeks to guide the evolution of the nylon string guitar, blending traditional craftsmanship of the early master luthiers with modern developments. Every Cordoba is lightweight, responsive, and a direct descendent of the Spanish tradition. Varying from ¼ to full size and with many color, wood, style, cutaway and electric options, Cordoba will have your ideal classical guitar. If you are looking for your first classical guitar in the C5-SP, C5 Lefty, or electric C5-CE are all perfect options to introduce you to the nylon string world. Maybe you have been playing nylon string guitars for years, the C10 and C12 are the pinnacle of classical guitars.
Cordoba is also one of the leaders in nylon string basses as well as ukuleles. The Cordoba Mini II Bass MH-E is ideal for anyone who wants to play bass without worrying about traveling with a huge instrument. As far as their ukuleles go, the Cordoba 15CM and 15CFM are both beautifully crafted instruments without a ridiculous price tag, which is what Cordoba has been known for!
Cordoba works with an amazing community of artists who expand the world of nylon string guitar beyond the traditional “classical” music! Artists such as Laura Mazon Franuqi, Vahagni, Emma Ruth Rundle, Dave Martone, Ben Butler, The Gypsy Kings, and One Republic are all noted Cordoba players across varying styles. Cordoba makes sure to make an instrument for any genre or any player!
