A full size, affordable Spanish-style guitar.

The Cordoba Protege C1 classical guitar is an ideal choice for aspiring players. With a spruce top and mahogany back and sides, this full-size nylon-string guitar produces a rich, resonant tone that belies its affordable price tag.

Spruce and Mahogany Construction Provides Full, Warm Tone

The Cordoba Protege C1 is crafted with quality tonewoods, including a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides. Together, these materials produce a warm, balanced tone with pleasing overtones, ideal for playing classical repertoire. The spruce top will continue to open up over time, providing an even richer sound. For an entry-level classical guitar, the Protege C1 offers impressive tone and resonance.

Beginner-Friendly Specifications Encourage Learning

With a 2.04" nut width and 25.6" scale length, the Protege C1 features dimensions scaled for smaller hands or those just starting out. The slim neck and short scale facilitate comfortable fretting and chording. An included gig bag provides safe transport and storage for your Protege C1 between lessons or practice sessions. Overall, the Protege C1 classical guitar supplies high quality at a price point suitable for students and beginners.

High-Gloss Finish Adds Visual Appeal

A high-gloss polyurethane finish graces the Protege C1, enhancing the natural beauty of the tonewoods. The flawless coating protects against scratches and environmental damage. Gold classical tuners complement the glossy sheen, capping off an instrument that looks as good as it sounds. For an affordable classical guitar, the Protege C1 exhibits an attention to cosmetic details not always found at lower price points.
