Default Cordoba Cadete 3/4 size nylon strung guitar

I know that there are folks who occasionally have need of a 3/4 size classical for travel, couch use, or perhaps for use by a child. I purchased one for a different purpose and posted a quick review over in the General Acoustic Guitar Discussion area as I am not a classical player.

Anyone who is looking for a 3/4 size classical can see my comments HERE.

thanks for the video...I'm looking at this instrumento to fill a songwriter's sister position. It's not easy to find inexpensive shorter scale nylons with solid tops. This guitar is unique in that fact.

Hopefully you saw my full review. For a shade over 3 bills it has a lot going for it. Coincidentally I JUST posted a new tune, South Of The Border, done on the Cordoba Cadete 3/4 size classical. I'll post it here as well. I now have it strung with normal tension D'Addario nylon strings and it plays fine with them.

When I changed strings I did polish the frets, which helped a bunch with the feel of the frets and probably helps the lifespan of the wound strings, and lowered the saddle by 3/32" which made it much easier to play. I love low action and light touch, so it works well for me.
