Cordoba 15CM Concert Ukulele
Note: There is also an Acoustic-Electric version of this ukulele: Cordoba 15CM-E
Cordoba continues to make their presence known in the stringed instrument market. Included in their conquest is the competitive entry-level ukulele market, where the Cordoba 15CM is currently among the highest rated ones available.
It comes with a familiar laminate mahogany body with a concert profile, but what sets it apart is Cordoba's penchant for sleek earthy visuals, which makes this look more expensive than it is.
It features an abalone-style rosette, an ivoroid binding on the body and fingerboard, and pearl tuner buttons.
- Top: Laminate Mahogany
- Body: Laminate Mahogany
- Neck: Mahogany
- Fingerboard: Rosewood
- Frets: 18
Most users are impressed with its build quality, especially when considering the price. And as expected, good build quality results in good sound and playability, both of which are often commended in reviews. It also helps that it looks more premium than it really is, which adds even more to its already good market value.
There are a few who wish for extra accessories and a gig bag, but they are pleased with the overall quality of the instrument all the same. There are also a few who recommend getting the ukulele set up by someone knowledgeable to improve playing experience.
While there are cheaper options with freebies, the quality and reliability of the Cordoba 15CM is more than enough to make up for them.
Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Concert Ukuleles.
