Cordoba 15 CM Concert Ukulele is a sleek tone giant and completely handmade. The tuning head, body and neck are made from the best quality mahogany. The edging of the handmade mahogany body is framed with ivoroid binding which highlights the color of honey on the wood. The fretboard and bridge are made from the dark rosewood to making for an elegant look. This is one of the most popular products at this price. 
Sound Quality
Cordoba 15 CM Concert ukuleles come with the smaller soprano & larger tenor on the tonal spectrum. It has a fuller tone than the soprano and though the instruments are also tuned to the same key. Concert ukulele has a longer neck, which means there is max tension on the strings. Which means the instrument will not fall out of tune from fretting. Cordoba 15CM concert ukulele delivers great quality of sound at a reasonable price than Hawaiian Koa, the traditional material has been used for ukuleles. Because this is made by mahogany that is why it is hard to expect any low-end or resonance from this instrument. However, the tone is well balanced between the high and low, high voice, and middle.
