From Cordoba –
“The Mini O-CE 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 ovangkol top paired with ovangkol back and sides for a rich, warm tone and exotic appearance.
For those who want to plug and play, the Mini O-CE features a soft cutaway and Córdoba 2Band pickup. It has the comfortable feel and string spacing of a full size guitar, with its thin U-shaped neck, 48mm (1.9”) nut width, and 510mm (20”) scale length. The Mini O-CE is a perfect companion for road trips, vacations, and hanging out at home.”

The feel and the sound of this instrument is impressive. Cordoba has been promoting it as a mini guitar, but from the factory they are tuned A to A, or C tuning like a ukulele. So it can taken either way – you can approach it as a larger ukulele, or tune it from E to E and play it as a smaller guitar.
The Mini O is the size of a baritone ukulele and fits into a baritone uke case perfectly. Many current guitalales use a 17″ scale with a thinner nut width. These can feel cramped to play and don’t sound nearly as good as the Mini O in our opinion.
The Mini is a 20″ scale, and 1 7/8” at the nut, and it feels perfect. The size of the body and shape of the neck are just right. The tone is very good, actually amazing at this price.
This Cordoba Mini O guitar uke is in excellent condition. This one has had its factory Cordoba pickup replaced by a nice Fishman unit which was a $160 upgrade. The Fishman amplifies the sound of this little beast in a delightful way. Very accurate articulation and a quality amplified tone.
Comes in its original Cordoba gig bag in new condition.
