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.
The Cordoba 25C delivers all of the sweetness and characteristic bite associated with the best made Acacia Koa instruments. A highly recommended first foray into a solid top Ukulele with a generous helping of traditional Hawaiian feel and tonality.
