Cordoba 25CK repair

Is there any way to fix a warped neck on Ukulele with no truss rod? Even after replacing strings and a new setup, it's still buzzing!

Just by pulling the frets and planing the boat and re-fretting it which is a couple hundred dollar job. I'm assuming it has a back bow. Can't really tell without looking. You can raise the saddle. If you don't have shim material you can cut a sliver of business card close to the width of the saddle and slip it in to see if it helps. Or a toothpick will be a more drastic raising. Or a better setup tech.

A luthier with the proper steam equipment may be able to straighten, repair, or replace the neck. However, the Cordoba 25 series is a "relatively inexpensive" ukulele and it may be more cost effective to purchase a new instrument than to have the work done. if you can locate a ukulele repair shop in your area you may be able to "trade in" your damaged ukulele, discounting the price of a more playable instrument, or as Andrew suggested, there may be a cost effective fix if the problem isn't severe. Ukulele parts may be available online, if you're handy and like to tinker. Has the warranty on your instrument expired? If not, then it may be worth the effort to contact Cordoba support.
