NAMM 2017: Cordoba Expands Protege Line

The Protégé by Córdoba is now more accessible.

SANTA MONICA, CA – Córdoba is pleased to announce an expansion of its entry-level nylon string guitars. The new C1M adds a durable matte finish option to the already popular C1 (gloss) and is available in full, 3/4, 1/2 and 1/4 size. Starting at just $139 MAP, these guitars feature a spruce top with mahogany back and sides and are perfect for the student and school market. While affordably priced, the C1M still includes many desirable traditional design elements such as gold tuning machines, rosewood fingerboard and bridge, natural wood inlaid rosette and premium Savarez strings.

A two-way adjustable truss rod allows teachers to customize the playability of each guitar for their students and provides stability for unpredictable classroom conditions. Córdoba is committed to building guitars that enrich and enhance young students’ learning experiences and hopes these entry-level models will inspire new players to create life- long relationships with music and guitar.

C1M Full – Street $139.99

Founded in 1997, Córdoba seeks to guide the evolution of acoustic guitars and ukuleles, blending traditional craftsmanship of the early master luthiers with modern developments. Inspired by the organic beauty and honesty of acoustic instruments, every Córdoba is lightweight, responsive, and a direct descendant of the Spanish tradition. Córdoba continues to challenge the definition of the acoustic guitar without sacrificing the authenticity of its heritage.
