The all-solid Cordoba C12 Classical Guitar is one of Cordoba's most high-end and modern guitars.
Available with either a solid Canadian cedar or European spruce top with Indian rosewood back and sides, the C12's lattice bracing and raised fingerboard are elements that make this model truly stand out from the rest. The delicately braced top provides rich tones with a lively presence and the raised fingerboard makes accessing upper frets a breeze. The C12 is a treasure to last a lifetime with stunning decorative elements such as its flamed maple center wedge on the back, matching maple binding, and hand-inlaid 1920s-inspired pearloid rosette. Comes inside a hardshell Cordoba humidified archtop case (weight: 9lbs, 3oz). (Click here to hear the pronunciation of "Córdoba".)

Just an addendum to my earlier review of this wonderful instrument and the customer service that Geoff provides. The last sentence of the review should read that I give XGuitars my highest recommendation WITHOUT hesitation.
I bought a C12 Spruce as a retirement gift to myself (I deserve it!). Covid has "forced" me into retirement. Having found myself in this situation, I decided to go back to playing guitar (after a period of 40 years).
All I can say is the C12 sounds fantastic. It's a joy to play. I actually enjoy practicing and I even look forward to my quite "alone with my guitar" evenings. I've had it for only a week and I will probably write another review after a couple of months.
This is the second guitar I have ordered from XGuitars and it will not be my last. The setup on my C12 is excellent and the tone is wonderful. Truly makes me want to practice more as it is such a pleasure to play. As far as the service and transaction Geoff is a true professional and the service he provides is superior in every way! He has always been available to answer any questions I've had and provides all around excellent communication. Looking forward to doing business with XGuitars again soon and I give them my highest recommendation with hesitation.
Wow - what a beautiful guitar. It sounds just like the clip on this site. Makes me want to practice a lot more.
Geoff, thank you so much for the way the you managed the entire order and delivery of my new C12. THEN, I tuned it up and put it back into its case after 2 hours. This guitar makes me want to practice more so that I can get it to sound as it was designed to sound.
