In the original sentence, "was" does not need to be repeated after "nor." Moreover, "having been won over..." incorrectly modifies "classical guitar" (the subject of the preceding clause) instead of Segovia.
(A) This choice is the same as the original sentence.
(B) This choice does not correct the modifier issue.
(C) CORRECT. This choice corrects the "nor" issue as well as the modifier issue. Now it is clear that it was Segovia who was won over by the instrument's sound.
(D) This choice is incorrect because the phrase "classical guitar did not have prestige nor was it performed..." is both unidiomatic ("not ... nor" is incorrect) and unparallel ("did not have....nor was it performed").
(E) This choice is incorrect because it repeats "was" after "nor" and because it implies that Segovia was won over by the sound of the instrument in the midtwentieth century, while the original sentence makes clear that this happened at some earlier point.
