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.

  • Body Profile: Miniature/Parlor
  • Top: Solid Spruce
  • Sides: Mahogany

  • Scale Length: 20.07″
  • Nut Width: 1.96″

Pros

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. Aside from nylon string guitarists, Ukulele players are also impressed with this guitar, describing it as a good transition instrument. Many also appreciate the Cordoba Mini M’s distinct tone, and how the tone will only improve as the guitar’s solid top gets broken in.

Cons

Some are not pleased with the wide classical size nut width, it can be quite a significant adjustment especially for those who are used to the small nut widths of steel string acoustics and electric guitars. 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.

Overall

The Cordoba Mini M’s solid top, and classical style nut width makes it a a great choice for those who want to travel with a nylon string equipped guitar.
