    I'm also curious on what pricing will be. Perhaps the new Mini II series will be replacing the Coco line? I can't imagine Cordoba would keep the Coco instruments in production too long.

    I dont know what the price is but I contacted Andrew from HMS and asked if he could get me the spruce top EB-CE. He responded immediately and said he would investigate. Then responded very shortly after that to let me know Cordoba is debutting these at Summer NAMM. He said he can have one in about 3 weeks time, mine is now on order.

    My local shop is ordering the MH model for me, so I should have it very soon after they become available.

    So if the Coco model's graphics were a deterrent, then this one should help to overcome that.

    I was going to get a Coco model as a beater, and as such, strip the hardware and strings off, and tape off the back, sides, neck and fretboard, and literally just hit it with a light coat or two of some flat black spray paint on the top and the headstock (after sanding of course).

    Now I wont have to turn it into a big project.

    However, with the narrower nut on the Mini II model, I'd replace the nut and modify the saddle for just 4 strings, and string it and tune it in fifths GDAE like a nylon string octave mandolin or nylon string tenor guitar.

    I've already converted a $99 steel string 23" scale acoustic to a 4-string tenor guitar, as well as several of my ukes are also tuned in fifths...so the conversion is actually pretty simple for me.

    The narrower nut pretty much makes this just another run of the mill mini guitar. The wider nut makes the original mini almost tolerable. The price point and (hopefully) quality should make this a definite yamaha mini killer.

    First, what is this "yamaha mini" you speak of?

    As far as the nut, different strokes I guess. I have the 2" Mini and 1-3/4" C1M and I personally prefer the neck of the C1M

    48mm (1 7/8") is still pretty uncommon for a guitar, though. The Taylor Mini has a 42.8mm (1 1/16") nut, which for me is very hard to play. My parlor guitar has a 45mm (1 3/4") nut, which is almost too narrow. So 48mm sounds pretty good to me, likely perfect even.
