Cordoba 20BM- Solid Mahogany Baritone Package
- Product Review (submitted on December 24, 2012):
I purchased my Baritone in August of 2011.
I was a little worried about getting a solid wood instrument - because I had heard of problems with cracking and splitting.
I shouldn't have worried. The body and Neck are solid and sound. the Mahogany looks gorgeous and is improving with age.
I have totally enjoyed my baritone. It has a beautiful sound and depending on how I strike the strings can sound like anything from a ringing bell to a heavy metal guitar (don't do that too often).
The satin finish on my ukulele is very nice - the more I handle it the better the finish seems to become. It just feels good in my hands.
I play it every day for anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours, it travels everywhere with me, and is still great, no cracking or splitting. And it still sounds very nice.
I had a belkin pickup installed when I bought it and it has also worked very well. I am just a little worried about how I am going to change the battery when it runs low, but it is still going strong after 18 months.
The only complaint that I have is I am wearing through strings a bit faster than I would like - but that may be a function of how much I play. Truly my Baritone is almost an extension of myself.
I love mine so much that when I bought my husband a tenor for his birthday - I bought another Cordoba.
