The Protégé by Córdoba C1 ¾ is a small scale nylon string guitar that was designed to provide aspiring young musicians with a comfortable first guitar that’s easy to learn on and play. The C1 ¾ has a reduced 615mm (24.2”) scale length and features a spruce top with mahogany back and sides.
Though this guitar is small, its high tension Savarez strings are tuned to a standard E. Additional features include a wood-inlaid mosaic rosette, nickel tuning machines, and a high gloss polyurethane finish. Like all Córdoba guitars, the C1 ¾ includes an adjustable truss rod for lifetime neck stability. Comes with a standard Córdoba gig bag.

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.
