Fretted instruments were first introduced to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants in the nineteenth century and by the early twentieth century, the island variations of these instruments known as ukuleles began to make their way to the mainland United States. Maintaining their reverence for the iconic instruments of the past, the craftsmen at Eastman have painstakingly studied actual instrument samples of the most coveted models from what is widely perceived as the era when the most desired ukuleles were being manufactured.
Cordoba’s Guilele CE is a crossover instrument with the size, sound, and feel of a tenor ukulele but with six strings, tuned just like a guitar, only higher (same as a guitar with a capo at the 5th fret – A D G C E A – low to high). This small six string is light, portable and a great travel option for guitarists on the go. It’s also a fantastic instrument for the ukulele player looking to explore the guitar, or for the adventurous guitarist searching for new sonic territory.
The 32T belongs to Cordoba’s new 30 series, a premium line of boutique, all-solid tenor ukuleles approached from a classical or Spanish guitar building perspective. Most notably, Cordoba is using an integrated neck joint or “Spanish Heel” instead of a traditional dovetail joint to join the body & neck of the ukulele. This method of construction offers a lighter weight & more stable heel joint that increases resonance and is less prone to movement as the uke ages.

The body is matched with rosewood binding and the fretboard is inlaid with abalone pearl snowflakes. Appointments include a bone nut and classic Grover tuning machines. Nylgut strings and hardshell case included.
