This is Cordoba’s top-of-the-line handcrafted tenor Uke with solid acacia back/sides and Sitka spruce top. This Uke has amazing projection and a very clear tone. It really shines for for fingerpicking and you won't worry about being heard in a strum-along, that's for sure! I first had a 35T (all acacia) but it had fret problems as did the two other all acacia models where I bought this. Of the two 35TS models I sampled, this particular Uke was the clear winner in tone. It was setup by the professionals at McCabe’s Guitar Shop and is in as-new condition. Retail is $720 and MAP of $599. My price is $450 shipped ground CONUS. Since I can trade it in for that amount, I'm not really open to lower offers.

From Cordoba’s description:

The 35TS belongs to Cordoba’s 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 “Spanish 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’s 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 only reason for selling is I’ve decided to experiment with many different Ukes during my first couple of years and I’m not currently in a position to justify having more than two Ukes at a time. PM me or email me at eddiemonnier at me dot com.
