          Comments about Cordoba 20BM Baritone Ukulele:

          I've been playing guitar for 16 years and started playing ukuleles this year. I started out on a soprano, and then decided to get the baritone. I wish I had tried out other ukes before ordering this one. The craftsmanship is terrible. It looks lopsided, there's glue that's clearly visible holding this thing together. The wood is some sort of plastic composite that is easily cracked and scratched, plus it'll slip right off your lap. The tone is terrible. But above all the frets buzz...every fret, every string. Save yourself the trouble. Get a Kala or Lanakai, I'm sure they'll sound much better.

            Comments about Cordoba 20BM Baritone Ukulele:

            This is the third baritone ukelele I have bought for family members. The cheaper ones have setup issues, and the saddle and nut are glued in place, so replacement is difficult. THIS baritone uke has no setup issues - no string "buzz" on frets. You will need new strings to coax the best tone out of this uke, but it's a great instrument for the price. I play classical guitar and I use baritone uke to introduce my kids to the instrument. This is a great starter.

              Comments about Cordoba 20BM Baritone Ukulele:

              After receiving 2 of these baritone ukuleles and finding bad frets on both I cancelled my order and will try something else. Tone was good. Setup was good except for frets, neck pitch was good but had no relief and in the case of the 2nd one the neck had a very slight back bow. Body workmanship was good. I would have kept the first instrument and been quite happy if it wasn't for 2 really low frets. The 4th fret was particularly buzzy and low enough that on a couple of the strings when you played the 4th fret you heard the 5th fret note sound. On the 2nd instrument the fret issue was mostly the 2nd string and it was very bad.

                I've owned various other Baritone ukulele models from other makers some even luthier grade level. Such as Graziano and Kamaka and as they say 'for the money' this is a great buy and trust me this can keep up with them nicely, I believe even better. So I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this over any of them out there right now. I plan on using it live and in professional situations.

                    I was looking for an affordable mahogany baritone uke. Laminated models sounded thin and felt cheap. This Cordoba model has a solid top which gives a warm, full tone. It is nicely constructed and has a fine appearnce. For the price, it is a good value. I would recommend it to a novice or someone wanting to add a bari-uke to their arsenal.

                      Comments about Cordoba 20BM Baritone Ukulele:

                      In the beginning, I bought three Rogue baris to fool around with-adjust action, re-string with Aquila strings ( both GCEA and DGBE sets.) I enjoyed them, and got used to their playing and 'heft'. My new Cordoba's tone is way superior to those. I have a Lanikai tenor too. Its tone is good too, about like the Cordoba. I really like the Cordoba in all respects, but one---it seems/is light in weight. The neck is thinner than the Rogues. I find it a bit "slippery", ie harder to hold on to because of its slick finish and lightness compared to the Rogues which have a satin finish and are quite a bit heavier and have a thicker necks. I think I will get used to the new feel in time. I have been playing only about a year now. The sound is very good, and it is beautiful in a understated way. In summary, I like it and have no real complaint about it.

                      Baritone Uke

                      Comments about Cordoba 20BM Baritone Ukulele:

                      Since the tuning is the same as the 4th-6th strings on a guitar the baritone Uke has been very easy to tone since I also have a clasical guitar and an electric tuner.
                      I wanted something bigger than the standard Uke and after reviewing all the styles I chose this.
                      I found this model to be a very good quality and tlhe tone is great.
                      The value received for the price is outstanding
