Cordoba 25CK Solid Acacia Concert Ukulele. Cordoba are a company renowned for their Spanish guitars who in addition have developed a beautiful range of ukuleles. Cordoba's 25 series offers a premium option that's ideal for intermediate players looking to go to the next level.
A ukulele to rival the many other solid acacia models available, this relative newcomer from Cordoba is a more than worthy competitor.
Excellently finished, with a smooth satin feel, the 25 series have plenty of soulful character. Acacia wood has Koa-like tones with the open resonance of Mahogany. Also called the Mimosa or Shower Tree, these tropical trees are cousins of the Hawaiian Koa tree. They have gorgeous striped patterns of light and dark brown and have a deep colourful tone that match their visual beauty.
Cordoba's 25K series, their first foray into Hawaiian style Acacia ukuleles comes with deluxe premium features now discontinued in their newer 25 series line. All 25K models are made with both a solid acacia top, and solid acacia back, making a noteworthy rival to any all solid wood ukulele and at an extremely attractive price point too. Other premium features include a luxurious rosewood cap on the headstock, with an engraved inset Cordoba insignia in gold and matching gold plated tuning machines with white pearloid oval buttons.
The 25K series look is classic with a nod to the vintage ukuleles of yesteryear. Maple binding and marquetry maple and ebony sound hole rosette are nicely inlaid, adding a distinctive yet understated decorative touch to an instrument with an already exceptional level of finish.
In line with the majority of Cordoba's offering, this exceptionally enjoyable ukulele features a wider nut width 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.
The Cordoba 25CK delivers all of the sweetness and characteristic bite associated with the best made Acacia Koa instruments. A highly recommended first foray into an all solid style Ukulele with a generous helping of traditional Hawaiian feel and tone.
My playing has improved immensely according to my tutor! It was not going well on my original concert ukelele.
