I believe the gentleman that posted the Cordoba C7 is all laminate is incorrect. The C7 has a solid cedar top; sides and back are laminate. As I posted, I am very happy with it and think that for $500 it is a great value.
However, my teacher whos is very impressed with the sound and quality and value noticed the spacing between the strings near the saddle looked off. He was right. The distance between the 3rd and 4th and 4th and 4th and 5th is 1/2 inch near the saddle. The distance between all the rest is 3/8 of an inch. It is under warranty and I shipped it back to them as requested and they will repair or replace. I sent photos and measurements as requested. In my simple mind I thought it might require a new saddle. However, after looking at the photos I sent they said the holes in the bridge may have been drilled improperly. (Wouldn't they have been machined and not drilled by hand?). If that is the case I'm not sure how they could drill another whole so closely to the existing hole. I bought this one after much searching and I loved this one in particular (compared to other C7's because the fretboard is so dark it looks like ebony and this suits my eye more than the lighter shades of rosewood. I am hoping they can repair it but if they send a new one so be it. It just puzzles me that if it is a machining process, how could one bridge be different? In this case, a hole drilled incorrectly.
I just shipped it so it will be a few days before I hear.
