The main good sign is. All the popular guitar is under your budget. I will start with the classical guitar.

Classical Popular Guitar:

My choice for Classical guitar.

  1. Cordoba Mini II MH.
  2. Cordoba Mini II EB-CE.

Cordoba Mini II MH:

After a huge success rate of mini-series. Cordoba has released a new model in 2018.  With three models. Now we are discussing the MH model. Which is the best traveling guitar in our choice? We are looking at the MH model today. The provider says that it will deliver the best a normal or a travel guitar can be like. So, now we discuss does it provide what we actually looking for?

Cordoba Mini II MH
  • Comfortable 1/2 size guitar, with standard tuning
  • Layered Mahogany top, back and sides
  • Nub one nut, 1. 875" Width
  • C-profile Mahogany neck; 22. 875" Scale Length
  • Satin polyurethane Body and neck finish

Neck & Body:

They made no mistake about it. This Cordoba Mini MH is a handsome little ukulele instrument. The Top is binding with Black ABS with an abalone-style of soundhole rosette. And I must mention the satin finish. I can bet you won’t find this kind of beauty in a cute shape body on your box.


The overall quality feels too premium. On the top, there is an open geared tuning machine. The bridge and fretboard made from the truss rod. You can’t get a gig bag with this. But it can be considerable.


This is the most prime question. And the answer is YES. The sound quality is premium. The tone is not that complex and full-size wood Cordoba. It can produce enough rich sound to performed in a little space.

Welcome, this cute travel guitar. It’s about (22 7/8”) scale length. It tunes so perfectly at standard E.For the deeper body depth. It can create a warm body tone. It comes with nylon guitar strings.

The frame is Mahogany top. It has an exotic look with sounds mellow.


  1. Elegant Looks with a robust build.
  2. Very good in playability.
  3. Within affordable prices.
  4. Premium look with rich sound quality.
