The Cordoba C9 Parlor Classical Guitar is ideal for guitarists looking for the comfort and ease of playability that a smaller instrument provides, while retaining the sweet, warm tone created by all-solid wood construction. Built with a solid Canadian cedar top and solid mahogany back and sides, the C9 Parlor has a reduced 7/8 body size and 50mm nut width.. (Click here to hear the pronunciation of "Córdoba".)

Like its sister model (C9), the C9 Parlor is built with a traditional Spanish fan bracing and Spanish heel construction to allow for a responsive soundboard and full vibration throughout the entire body. It has a C-shape neck and flat fingerboard characteristic of traditional classical guitars, but also includes modern features such as a two-way truss rod for long-term neck stability.
Delicate aesthetic touches like its 1920s-inspired pearloid rosette add a touch of vintage elegance. Other stand-out features such as a rosewood fingerboard and bridge, red purfling, high gloss finish, Savarez Cristal Corum strings, and a lightweight polyfoam case makes this a Córdoba best-seller and a guitar you’ll play for a lifetime.

" This is a really nice 640mm guitar. I was able to play this one on-site at Geoff's store, and was prepared to buy a more expensive (640mm) guitar, but this one really spoke to me. Geoff offered wise advice and let me try the three short scale guitars to my heart's content, and was as (or more) service-oriented than any salesperson I've ever encountered. It was a great experience with a great guitar."
