The C7 is a long-time fixture in Cordoba’s product line. A step up from the C5, which features a solid Canadian cedar top and mahogany back and sides, the C7 offers guitarists the option of solid Canadian cedar top or solid European spruce top paired with rosewood back and sides. Like many Cordoba guitars, the C7 features a fan bracing pattern, which gives the center of the soundboard more surface area to vibrate and respond to the tension of the strings. A more responsive soundboard makes the guitar louder, and provides better tone. The C7 is a great choice for beginner or intermediate guitarists. Additional features include a hand-inlaid wooden rosette, rosewood binding, bridge, and fingerboard, and a natural high gloss finish. It comes with Savarez Cristal Corum strings and Cordoba’s deluxe gig bag. The C7 is also available with a cutaway and electronics (C7-CE, cedar top only).

If you don't have these, you will need to buy picks, a separate hard case, a guitar stand, a music stand, and a humidity checker for the case. You want to make sure you let it warm up to room temperature BEFORE playing if you receive it during winter / colder months.

Cordoba specializes in nylon string instruments, producing a wide range of classical guitars including the C1, C3, C5, C7, C9 and C10. This puts the C7 in the higher, mid range of the lineup. It comes with a solid ceder top and gloss finish, which gives it a nice full and bright sound. As is the norm with classical guitars, the body is slightly more compact than most steel-string acoustic guitars, making it easy to handle. The wider fretboard takes a little bit to get used to if you're coming from a steel-string - really go in with the mindset that you're learning an entirely different form of guitar (which you are). Once you get your bearings though, you'll really love playing on this. The build quality is fantastic, feeling sturdy in the hands. Particularly, the lower strings have a great deep sound with good sustain.
The included gig bag is also decently padded and will help you transport your C7 safely and in style, though definitely not for use on an airplane, you'll need a proper hard case for that.
Overall, I'm very happy with the newest member of my guitar family. The C7 is built well with a great, full sound.This is a great option if you'r elooking to get started in classical guitar, but don't want to start with the cheapest instrument available. This is definitely an intermediate offering at a beginner's price point that will give you lots of growing room. Very happy with it for the price and would recommend!
Real classical guitar enthusiasts could weigh in and tell you how this stacks up to either a wider range of comparably-priced guitars or much pricier ones, but I can say that there's a real nice glow to the sound of this thing versus (for instance) the Yamahas I tried around this price point. Absolutely love it.
