If a tuner set with a bearing at the end of the roller is your choice, make sure your head stock is wide enough at the E strings to allow the tuner plates to both screw down.
My Martin 000c crossover has a peg head that is too narrow at the E strings and one side will not seat as the bearings hit one another. This is not a problem with a plastic roller because a tiny bit can be trimmed off.

just something that happened to me...don't know about the Cordoba


FWIW, my Pavan is a 50mm nut (1.97").

The Rubner Roll rollers (optional, use the "Select roller style for pricing") pull down box have a bearing on the end of the roller that fits in the center section of the headstock. These rollers eliminate the roller binding on the wood of the headstock, the tuners are literally as smooth as Gotoh 510 sealed tuners (for steel strings).
This shows them:

I bought a set of the Rubner Rollers... and wow, they are smooth and perfect for a lovely little classical parlor guitar I bought.

I put Grand Schaller tuners on all my full size Cordobas and they're awesome. I had to order them direct from Schaller in Germany though. I think they ran about $150 a set, because three sets ran me $450. I had been seriously close to springing for Sloans, but decided that I liked the Schallers better.

I looked at those grand schaller's for quite some time.

I almost pulled the trigger on buying them for my Cordoba, but the big logo on them turned me off.

Bought my Rubner's for about $120 for the set

I like that big lazy "S" logo. I looked at the Runbners, but the look of the Schallers seemed more elegant and refined to my eye.

Good point. I've run into this problem, since the Rubner roller is 32mm, while most others are 30mm. That's about .080" difference.
