More Odds And Ends From NAMM

CORDOBA UKULELE SERIES: Cordoba has partnered with renowned luthier Pepe Romero, Jr. to design a new line of premium all solid ukuleles. Available in four wood combinations, the 30T, 32T, 35T, and 35T S models will hit stores in the first quarter of 2013. Breaking away from the traditional Portuguese build and ornamentation of their other ukuleles, Cordoba has adopted Romero Jr.’s vision of building ukuleles as if they were small guitars by using traditional Spanish 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. Romero Jr.’s ukuleles are currently played by a variety of artists including Ben Harper and Jack Johnson. Entirely handmade, the 30 Series are Cordoba’s first ukuleles featuring twelve frets to the body rather than fourteen. This creates greater movement of the soundboard, greater resonance and volume, and a warm, balanced tone. Each model features an abalone rosette, premium all solid woods, Grover tuning machines, and includes a durable Cordoba polyfoam case.
