The 35T tenor uke features all solid acacia for the top, back, and sides which give it a clear, bright tone, and distinctive figured appearance.

CORDOBA 30T-CE Tenor Ukulele w/ Pickup
Córdoba, using their experience as one of the worlds greatest producers of classical guitars approached the construction of their 30 series by building the ukuleles as if it were a classical guitar, but in miniature. The result of this development is the 30T-CE. With its gloss finish, all solid Mahogany body, and a L.R. Baggs Five O pickup, the 30T-CE looks, feels and sounds impressive, with a warm, resonating tone. Includes a Córdoba Polyfoam Case.
PONO SOLID ACACIA BARITONE UKULELE
Many companies producing ukuleles want to make an instrument that feels and sounds true to the ukulele's hawaiian roots. Pono, the sister company of Ko'olau in Hawaii, have been the first to do so. With a purpose built workshop on the island of Java, every Pono instrument is handcrafted with both new and old techniques, such as the addition of a truss rod, allowing for adjustment of the neck.
