Designed for aspiring classical guitar players, the Protégé Series C1M from Cordoba is a full-size, nylon-string classical guitar with a natural, matte polyurethane finish. It utilizes a traditional, classical build with fan bracing, featuring a spruce top with mahogany back and sides. Aesthetics such as a traditional rosette and black ABS binding are also incorporated.
The guitar’s mahogany neck sports a C-shaped profile, with a 25.6” scale and a rosewood fingerboard with 19 frets, joining the body at the 12th fret. At the headstock, a set of gold tuning machines with pearl buttons secure the strings while a rosewood bridge anchors the strings to the body. An adjustable dual-action truss rod is also included to help keep the neck straight.
