Cordoba Mini R


The Cordoba Mini R is the ultimate travel instrument, offering the playability of a full size nylon-string guitar in a compact, lightweight body with an impressively loud voice. This miniature guitar features a solid spruce top paired with rosewood back and sides for a deep, full tone. Its comfortable, thin U-shaped neck and 2" (50mm) nut width offers the feel and string spacing of a full-size guitar.  The Mini may be tuned to standard 'E to E' tuning or may be tuned up a 4th from standard guitar tuning (same as a guitar with a capo at the 5th fret - A D G C E A - low to high).  The Cordoba Mini R is a perfect companion for road trips, vacations, and hanging out at home. Includes a Cordoba gig bag.

The Cordoba Mini comes strung with  Cordoba Mini Strings , tuned up a fourth from standard guitar (ADGCEa); we recommend this string set and tuning for the most vibrant tone and optimal playability. If you'd like to play your Mini in standard E tuning, you'll just need the E set of strings available right at our Web store
