Designed for aspiring classical guitar players, the Protégé Series C1M from Cordoba is a full-size, nylon-string classical guitar with a natural, matte polyurethane finish. It utilizes a traditional, classical build with fan bracing, featuring a spruce top with mahogany back and sides. Aesthetics such as a traditional rosette and black ABS binding are also incorporated.
The guitar’s mahogany neck sports a C-shaped profile, with a 25.6” scale and a rosewood fingerboard with 19 frets, joining the body at the 12th fret. At the headstock, a set of gold tuning machines with pearl buttons secure the strings while a rosewood bridge anchors the strings to the body. An adjustable dual-action truss rod is also included to help keep the neck straight.

Here at Easy Music Center, we care for our instruments from the moment they arrive to when they ship to your door. All instruments are stored in a climate controlled environment and put through a 12 point inspection checklist before being shipped.
First, we check the finish of the instrument, carefully inspecting any blemishes on the surface. Next, we check the playability and setup by inspecting and adjusting the truss rod (if available), bridge, nut, and frets. If the instrument has electronics, we test all of the electronic components to make sure they are functioning properly.
After a thorough inspection, we then move on to maintenance. We start by lubricating any moving parts on the instrument, such as tuning machines. We then move on to cleaning and oiling the fretboard along with the frets.
Once maintenance is done, we stretch and tune the strings and play test the instrument. After this, we do a final inspection and clean/detail the instrument before packing it up for shipment.
We’re excited to be a part of your instrument buying experience.
