Cordoba 20TM-CE Solid Mahogany Top Electro Acoustic Tenor Ukulele. Cordoba are a company renowned for their Spanish guitars who in addition have developed a beautiful range of ukuleles. Cordoba's 20 series are an exceptional example of a classically styled mahogany ukulele.
Featuring a solid mahogany top and mahogany back and sides, the Cordoba 20TM delivers on character, tone and warmth. Mahogany has long been a classic wood choice for ukulele, offering a pronounced mid-range favoured by bluegrass artists. The result is a ukulele that has a softer than usual attack to the highs but a characterful 'honkiness' to the mids, lending an understated but playful quality to the sound.
The 20 series look is understated and timeless. On closer inspection the fine attention to detail on these mahogany ukes clearly sets them apart from other more similarly priced ukuleles. Cordoba use a nice quality grade of mahogany for the solid top, with a pleasing slight orange hue that is warm rather than overbearing. Finished in a silky smooth satin varnish, these ukuleles are a pleasure to hold and play. A simply laid natural wood herringbone rosette adds a tasteful touch of quality to an already exceptional level of finish. One of the finest mahogany builds available for the money, the 20 series are an excellent choice for a step up instrument and a welcome entry into solid top ukuleles.
Cordoba's ukulele series feature wider than standard string spacing in comparison to other brands. The Cordoba range has become a favourite with players who prefer more room on the fretboard and a slightly wider feeling neck. For players who find spacing a challenge, Cordoba ukuleles are a highly recommended choice.
