The 32T 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 neckjoint 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 neckjoint, fan bracing, and a wider fingerboard for easy playability.
The 32T tenor uke appeals to the player looking for the darker, and more dynamic tone that is typically associated with solid rosewood back and sides. The 32T also features a solid Sitka spruce top for added clarity, 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's 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 Cordoba poly foam case.

Sound and tone are fantastic. The overall finish is very good. Thin neck profile, so that might be something to take note if if you have big hands. Nice poly foam case included.
Overall it's built every bit as well as a small classical nylon string guitar. Attention is paid to almost everything except setup. Atrocious. Nut heights for each string was so high it would hurt your fingers. Saddle height too high as well. String holes into string block was a tiny bit off. The G was a bit over.
Cordoba was a bit aloof and defensive when I questioned them. They said "you may just not like our instrument"
For the price it's going back. I can't recommend this for that price but decrease price by 20% and I'd say go for it
Custom Guitar's friend saves the day again! Inspected one and returned mine. They always come through. I'll update when the new one comes
Cordoba 32T Tenor Ukulele Rosewood Natural
.Second one received. Now I can honestly say I'm extremely disappointed. This finish was terrible. Fret end too long and breaking through finish. For this price tag it should be impeccable. I've seen acoustic guitars at half the price set up and finished better than this.
This is not worth the price. I'm thoroughly sad now.
