Cordoba Guitars introduces the handmade, small-body C9 Dolce

May 30, 2013
Cordoba Guitars is excited to announce the release of the C9 Dolce, a 7/8 sized version of the best-selling models C9. With a slightly reduced body size and scale length (630mm), Cordoba has created a new instrument suited for the player looking for the feel and comfort of a smaller instrument offering increased ease of playability. Featuring a solid Canadian cedar top and solid mahogany back and sides, the C9 Dolce is handmade by a small team of builders in a boutique workshop, using traditional Spanish construction techniques such as the Spanish heel, hand carved neck and braces, and a domed soundboard built on a traditional solera. The hallmark of the Luthier series is the mother-of-pearl hand-inlaid rosette inspired by a 1920s Domingo Esteso rosette, adding a striking focal point to the C9 Dolce’s already sleek aesthetic. Like all models in the Luthier series, this guitar also includes a two-way adjustable truss rod, Cordoba’s premium black and gold tuning machines, and a deluxe Cordoba humidified archtop wood case. 
C9 Dolce Specs:
Solid Canadian cedar top, solid mahogany back and sides, mahogany neck, ebony fingerboard, natural high gloss PU finish, 50mm nut width, 630mm scale length, Savarez Cristal Corum strings. Includes deluxe Cordoba humidified archtop wood case.
MSRP: $970
Founded in 1997, Cordoba seeks to guide the evolution of the nylon string guitar, blending traditional craftsmanship of the early master luthiers with modern developments. Inspired by the organic beauty and honesty of acoustic instruments, every Cordoba is lightweight, responsive, and a direct descendant of the Spanish tradition. Cordoba continues to challenge the definition of the acoustic guitar without sacrificing the authenticity of its heritage. Learn more at
