Good first ukelele beyond a base Kala. Will upgrade.


Good under $200 training and home uke.



It is great


It is fun to play. Easy to carry and travel with. Sounds great too.




Looks and Sounds Great


I am delighted. It rings out like a bell. It feels good to hold and it looks very attractive. And Sam Ash (Matt Marcus, rep) did a great job. He explained the choices, made me happy with all aspects of the deal, and got it to me in 1 day. That's right one day. Thank you.

Decent uke, BUT...


This is a nice sounding instrument, however, the machine heads are very loose. Lots of play between the gears. You will never keep it in tune unless you replace them. If you decide to buy it, ask for a $15 discount; That's how much a set of Grovers (Grover 9NB Sta-Tite) will cost you. You will have to drill new screw holes to install them, but you will have a nice, in-tune instrument. Sam Ash will work with you on the price.

This is my first ukulele and I love it. It has great sound and its loud. You will have to tune it a lot in the beginning but thats expected with all ukuleles. It will get better later on. It's well built and feels good in the hands. The price is amazing for an acoustic electric. Also even though it's a tenor size uku it has a close sound to the soprano uku unlike other tenors that I've tried. I highly recommend this ukulele for beginners because you will fall in love and play forever and the fact that it's electric just makes it better. I do recommend that you go to a music store and play some ukuleles before you buy one. Overall I'm extremely happy with my choice [...]

A Super Instrument


I use the instrument for personal and family entertainment. I have several Ukes, soprano, concert, tenor and baritone and I really feel this Cordoba beats them all. I love the mellow tone.

Córdoba 20TM-CE


I wanted a uke look and a uke plugged in sound. Ran across the Córdoba 20TM-CEsolid mahog tenor cutaway with active preamp/eq . Made in Portugal I like it a lot. Feel: smooth matte finish Action: good out of box - right nut height Sound: VERY pleased that it has a sound akin to a soprano, not the ringing guitarry sound some tenors have. Plugged in: roll back the treb, sounds like a uke. I always dislike the percussive "click" sound some UST pickups make. If you keep the treb and brilliance right, this one does not have that irritation. Workmanship: Body finish, neck, all smooth and precise. Rosewood bridge a little on the grainy side finish-wise. A few mill marks on rosewood fretboard. No big deal on these. Interior wiring neat. No glue blotches. I like the classical guitar style tie on bridge. Tuners: geared, white buttons kind of blah, tunes OK. Just OK, not super. Wood: All solid. They say mahogany. It has a stripey appearance - maybe sapelle. Smell: Glue and, dare I hazard a guess - I think I smell sapele, not mahogany. Appearance: It has a humble ukey look - What I thought was a decal rosette (similer to Martin 15 series guitar rosette decal) turns out to be an actual inlaid rosette - nice. Pearloid fretboard markers are subtle, not flashy. Humble is good. Intonation: Good. 12th fret harmonics seem right, with slight difference on the C string - pretty common. Playability: Just great, as is from the box. Strings: Came with Aquilla high G, no wound. I think some distributers may have it with wound C and darker strings. I like it as is. Overall: This ukulele does what I wanted it for: A good plugged in sound and good acoustic sound that sounds more like a soprano than a typical tenor. A nice humble ukulele appearance. Big factor: I enjoy playing it. Caveat: If you are looking for that ringing guitar-like sound of some modern tenors, this may not be for you. Years back I played some ukes from Portugal and did not like them. Those were overbraced and quirky. This is not like that. It reminds me of the feel, sound, and finish of a moderate Chinese uke - like an Ohana. I'm very happy with it.
