An all-solid tenor ukulele with a sitka spruce top made from a Spanish guitar building perspective.
The 35TS belongs to Cordoba' new 30 series, a premium line of boutique, all-solid tenor ukuleles approached from a classical or Spanish guitar building perspective. Most notably, Cordoba is using an integrated neck joint or œSpanish Heel instead of a traditional dovetail joint to join the body and neck of the ukulele. This method of construction offers a lighter weight and more stable heel joint that increases resonance and is less prone to movement as the ukulele ages. Cordoba collaborated with renowned luthier Pepe Romero Jr. on the 30 series, adopting Romero' vision of building ukuleles as if they are small guitars using traditional Spanish building methods. The result is an incredibly lightweight tenor ukulele with a deeper and wider body, featuring a Spanish heel neck joint, fan bracing, and a wider fingerboard for easy playability.
The 35TS tenor uke features all solid acacia for back and sides which give it a clear, bright tone, and distinctive figured appearance. The 35T also features a solid Sitka spruce top along with a beautiful rosewood bridge, binding, and fingerboard. The styling is refined and sleek, using abalone for the inlaid rosette and rosewood for the binding, capped off with Cordoba' signature elevated headstock with a figured acacia overlay. The finish is a hand-rubbed polyurethane, applied as thin as possible for maximum resonance. Other features include a black TUSQ nut and saddle, chrome Grover tuners, Aquila Nylgut strings, and a Cordobapoly foam case.

Comments about Cordoba 35TS Tenor Ukulele:
this is my second ukulele both of them were Cordoba's.the first one was less exspensive but was really nice,this one is fantastic.more volume and so mellow. I belong to a dulcimer club and several people play ukulele's and this one is as nice as more exspensive ones. I would definitely recommend this one. had problems with wrong case but Musiciansfriend took care of that withen two days. GOOD JOB.
