The Cordoba Mini M is the travel guitar of choice for many nylon string players, with its miniature size and solid specs.

Speaking of solid, this portable nylon string guitar comes with a solid spruce top, which is quite special given its price tag.

And while the body size follows after traditional parlor shape, the neck offers classical playability courtesy of its 1.96" wide nut, but with a shorter scale length of 20.7".

By default, this travel guitar is tuned to A, much like many instruments of this size, but it can be tuned to standard E tuning with thicker gauge nylon strings.

The overall market response to the Cordoba Mini M is positive, with many rating it highly for its balance of portability and classical playability. Sound quality is also commended by students and experienced players alike. Even Ukulele players chime in with their praise, saying that it is a great transition instrument from Ukulele to guitar.


Unfortunately, Cordoba can't please everybody because there are a few who wished for the classical size wide neck to be narrower. There are also some reports of having minor tuning issues when in standard tuning with the default set of strings, but this should be addressed with Cordoba's dedicated standard E set of strings for their Mini series of guitars.


Get the Cordoba Mini M if you fancy having an easy to carry nylon string guitar for your travels.
