Default NGD!!! (PICS ADDED)!

Finally decided on which Classical guitar to buy, and ended up with a Cordoba C7. Only time will tell, but I really like it, and it looks to be well made. I'll post some pics shortly

Congratulations on the new Cordoba C7 Guitar.
That's a great choice, and sure it will give you many years of fun. Enjoy.

Five weeks ago I bought the Cordoba C5 Classical Guitar, haven't stopped playing it since I got it.

It was a challenge photographing this one due to the very high gloss finish. The Rosewood is absolutely beautiful. I'm very glad I went with the C7 over the C5. Now as long as the bridge doesn't pop off, and hit me in the ear all will be good, lol.

Very nice! I think Cordoba makes one heck of a guitar, especially the cedar topped ones, like yours.

Thanks for the nice comments, everyone.

It really is a beauty, but I'm not sure if I'll get used to such a wide fingerboard. I actually bought it to play some blues, (it has a real bluesy sound). It's also so light, and very loud for its size.

I've also been practicing some classical pieces, but not sure that's my thing? Time will tell.

You might consider using a polerising filter to eliminate the reflections next time, but the photos are very nice anyway.

That is very nice. Take some time with it, the traditional classical neck takes some getting used to.

It plays and sounds wonderful. Just have to get accustomed to the wide fingerboard.
