Default Cordoba 45MR or C10?

I'm new to the world of classical guitars but love the look and sound of cedar on rosewood. If both of these guitars were priced the same, which one would you purchase? Are there any significant differences between both besides one being made in Spain and the other in China?

Are you unable to try them? There is a short thread about the differences on https://www.classicalguitardelcamp.com/index.php

Unfortunately, the 45MR has been discontinued in favor of the 45CO, and my local stores don't stock the higher end Cordobas, so I'm also unable to try a C10. I have seen used examples priced similarly, though. I can't seem to open the link you provided from my phone, and will try later on my laptop. Thanks for the response! Anyone else care to opine?

I was finally able to open your link this morning and after registering on the site, have read the comparative threads. It's interesting to note that the 45 series has laminated B/S as opposed to the all-solid C10, so I'll definitely lean towards the C10. Thanks again!
