First off, keep in mind this is a budget instrument. I'm not sure what the quality control is like at the Cordoba factory. That said, if you buy from Elderly you know that you're getting a pro inspection and setup on this. You're assured a good instrument that way.
Speaking specifically about the one I got:
The build quality is really good. It is well put together and even great cosmetically. Quite frankly, judging by looks alone, it looks as good or better than a lot of more expensive instruments. It is an all laminate body instrument, but the top veneers chosen are very nice. Very pretty grain. It actually looks like a higher quality laminate than some ukes in this price range use. Sound is subjective, but I think it sounds really nice. It has more resonance than I would've expected. Setup is very good from Elderly. I did a slight bit of fine tuning because I'm very picky and do some of my own setup work too, but it arrived perfectly playable. The geared tuners are not super high quality, but do a fine job. They are good enough that I doubt I will ever replace them. They are certainly far better and easier to use than even high quality friction tuners. The white pearl colored buttons on them are a nice touch. The soundhole rosette on this instrument is also very attractive, as well as the body and neck binding.
I'm in awe of just how much instrument I got here for the price.
At roughly $100 this is an outstanding deal on a nice, playable uke.
The gray colored Cordoba gig (goes for about $30) is also an excellent product. It is one of, if not the best, gig bags I've ever had for a uke. It's very well padded and substantial. There is also an economy Cordoba bag that is black in color I've seen. Just to be clear, I'm talking about the gray one.
Based on the uke I got, I have no problems recommending this instrument to anyone. Thanks Cordoba and thanks Elderly!
