I am looking for moderate (mid Level) tenor with a nice sounding pickup. I don't really care cutaway or traditional, just want a good sounding pickup. Not interested in spending a huge amount of money anybody got something they can part with?

Hey there and welcome! Where are you located?

I have a Cordoba 22T - solid spruce top, laminate rosewood back and sides - with a MiSi rechargeable pickup and Oahu hard case, purchased from and set up by Hawaii Music Supply (theukulelesite.com) for $438 in June 2014. (Most people consider the MiSi and the Baggs 5.0 the two best ukulele pickups.) I would sell it for $260, including CONUS shipping. (I want to help pay for a recently purchased baritone, and this is the most redundant of my tenors.)

I can send you photos of my actual uke, which won't look different from the ones at http://www.theukulelesite.com/cordoba-22t-solid-spruce-top-tenor.html . The sound sample on that page makes the ukulele sound oddly quiet, which it isn't -- it's bright, it's loud (it's spruce). For a much more accurate sound sample (and much less skilled playing), there are mine unplugged at https://soundcloud.com/comedyandmusic/cordobatenor-unpluggedwav and amplified (flat settings, no reverb, Fishman Loudbox Mini amp) at https://soundcloud.com/comedyandmusic/cordobatenor-amplifiedwav. I just noticed that the amplified one doesn't sound that different, so I could re-do that one if you are seriously interested.
