I had been interested in picking up the ukelele for about six months but hadn't really gotten a chance to take it seriously until recently, so that's when the research began. I saw plenty of beautiful ukes in this price range, but none that were acoustic/electric. The most important thing I learned from many review videos and ukelele websites was to go to a store and put your hands on one before you bought it. Boy was I glad I went to Guitar Center first! Some of the other models I was interested in held tuning terribly (yes I know the strings need time to stretch and all that) but after a few strum sessions with each uke, they sounded awful and needed retuning. I settled on this model after I laid my hands on it and heard its beautiful sound. I rarely have to re-tune it even after playing it all day. The mahogany has a much more unique and pleasing sound over some Koa models and the satin finish is to die for. The only thing I didn't care for was the tuning keys which look a little plastic-like up close, but a very minor drawback and can be swapped out if you really wanted. One detail not apparent until you hold one of these babies is the hand laid wood pattern around the hole and on the bridge. I first thought it was like many cheaper ukes, and that it was a sticker, or plastic inlay, but was very impressed with that little detail. I'm a guitar player and found the tenor size much more comfortable and pleasing versus a soprano. Concert sizes play well too, but there wasn't much of a selection at that store. Preamp is extremely powerful and has a very full sound when plugged in. Anyone who plays this ukelele will be more than pleased, for sure. I got this baby for a steal at a labor day sale, but would've gladly payed the list price or the online price for it.

I purchased this Ukulele for my granddaughter. She has another Ukulele but it wasn't a very good one and I thought she needed a better quality Ukulele. I wanted her to have an Acoustic-Electric instrument and it is also what she said she wanted. I looked online for a ukulele and finally decided to purchase from Guitar Center. When I went into the store to buy one I was told that the one they had not only had a defect on the neck but that the electronics also didn't work right and couldn't be fixed. They said they could order a new one and that is what I did. I received the new Ukulele in perfect time as my granddaughter was going to be visiting me the next day. She absolutely loved, loved, loved, her new acoustic-electric ukulele. I received a phone call from my daughter after they had returned home informing my the the electric input on the ukulele had come apart and again could not be fixed. Guitar Center is once again ordering my granddaughter another Ukulele. It's not that Guitar Center isn't taking care of us it is just that the product doesn't seem to be of very good quality. I am not very happy!

      Comments about Cordoba 20TM-CE Tenor Cutaway Electric Ukulele:

      I'm a children's artist, and I needed a good electric/acoustic Uke to use with my Mackie PA system, mainly for birthday party gigs, and smaller family shows. This one has been amazing. It holds its tuning really well, and has a nice warm tone.
      The ONLY thing "wrong" with it is that it doesn't have strap buttons.. So if you like to play standing up, you might need to get creative on the strap front. (an old dog leash and velcro strips!)

      Comments about Cordoba 20TM-CE Tenor Cutaway Electric Ukulele:

      Played one in a guitar center store and it sounded really good. It was on sale for 120$ or so because the top was badly damaged on the bottom behind the bridge. They had no more in stock so I ordered one online from GC.

      It came in about 2 weeks or less and was well packaged. Problem was, the #4 G string did not jive with the #1 A string. They got more and more out of tune to each other as you played down the neck. The intonnation was out, no matter how perfectly I tuned it.

      I decided to return it and order another one. I was able to do both right at my local GC. It came in about a week. The second uke played WAY better than the first one, so I am satisfied. I've only had it about a week, so I cannot say more, but I'm happy with my second uke.

        This is my first tenor. I have been playing Ukulele for a while now and this was immidiately my favorite of the 4 that I own. The solid top is amazing and you will not see that in any other uke in this price range. It is all around smooth and clean. No sharp edges or frets. It's very nicely put together. The electronics are very nice and work well. It has a wonderful sound, acoustically and when plugged into an amp. This Uke is a steal for the price and you will not find this kind of quality in this price range from any other than Cordoba.

                Since acoustic guitar failed me many times over & my fingers wont cooperates. I finally bite the bullet and bought one. So I decided to go to Guitar Center, they have all different kind of brands, style, designs. They have Kala, Luna, Lanikai, Kohala, Mitchell, Fender, Ephiphone, Gretsch & Cordoba. Believe it or not, Cordoba was not on my list. I was leaning towards other brand. But after holding each one of them, feeling it to my hands, struming it and play few cords back to back. I keep coming back to Cordoba 20TM-CE. It's just a friendly ukulele, easy to play and it's like its telling me to PLAY ME, PLAY ME, PICK ME, PICK ME. After spending at least an hour and a half inside the store deciding and thinking what to get. The brand I've been watching on youtube, read many positive comments and reviews. The brand were my mind was set to get didn't happened. I walked out of the door with CORDOBA 20TM-CE. I am very happy with it. And I'm glad I made the right choice. 5 stars worth for this guy. I only have 1 problem, this ukulele is not attached to my body..
