    If you happen to take a tape measure with you when you are looking at sopranos with a wider neck and measure the width across the strings, then compare that to the width across the strings on ukuleles with narrower necks, you are in for a surprise. Just saying, because I did it.
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    If I remember right, I checked all my distances over strings & found them to be about 28mm at the nut.

    That is another good point, Rllink. I too believe that string spacing is just as important as nut width. I learned this from my guitar playing experience.
