Natural matte/satin finish allows better resonance and sustain
One of the most popular models and a staple in the Iberia Series lineup, the Cordoba C3M is a full-sized, handcrafted guitar. It is built with a solid cedar top, mahogany back and sides, and traditional Spanish fan bracing. The C3M also has a hand-inlaid wooden rosette, a rosewood fingerboard, and nickel plated tuning machines with pearl buttons. The 'M' in the title stands for its light matte finish.
C3M Full Specs
Solid cedar top, mahogany back and sides, rosewood fingerboard and bridge, black ABS binding, natural satin finish, 52mm nut width, 650 millimeter scale length, Savarez Cristal Corum strings in High Tension (500CJ).
Nylon string guitars are built more lightly than steel string guitars, allowing the soundboard to vibrate and resonate more freely. The fan bracing pattern 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. Like all Cordoba guitars, the C3M comes equipped with a lightweight, two-way truss rod that allows you to adjust the amount of relief in the guitar's neck.
