The 23 Series is Cordoba’s newest line of ukuleles featuring exotic woods. The 23C is a concert ukulele featuring a solid ovangkol top paired with ovangkol back and sides, rosewood bridge and fingerboard, mahogany neck, and ovangkol headstock veneer. Ovangkol ranges from rich orange to a darker brown in color, and is commonly streaked with gray, purple, or black. It’s tonally similar to rosewood, with a slightly fuller mid-range.
