What We Say

Kicked off with the Martin LX series and the Taylor Baby, the market for travel guitars has become pretty big and there is a lot of choice if you want a small guitar to take on holiday. However, now that baggage restrictions with a lot of the European carriers are often extremely strict, even the Martin and Taylor sized guitars are too big to carry on as hand luggage. The Cordoba is a much smaller instrument - somewhere between a tenor and a baritone uke in size - so you stand far more chance of sweet talking the check in clerk, and it's an awesome little guitar. The strings are made by Aquila so they sound and feel like ukulele strings, and they're designed to play in concert pitch with good tuning stability and intonation. The neck is big enough for adult hands and they're nice and light without being overly neck heavy.

The range includes Spruce / Mahogany, Spruce / Rosewood and all Ovankol, or if you need a pickup they make an electro Ovakol and and Spruce / Spalted Maple. All of them sound different to our ears with the Ovankol softer and gentler and the Spruce top versions a bit bassier and livelier, but they're all excellent instruments we'd be happy to take on holiday ourselves.

What They Say

The new 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 Cordoba Mini R is a perfect companion for road trips, vacations, and hanging out at home. Includes a Cordoba gig bag.
