I've got a question or two for anyone who has played various Ohana sopranos. I own the SK-75R which I love, and prior to that I owned the SK-25z which I could never get to stay in tune so I sold it.

I'm looking to get another one (I know I know UAS) to contrast the spruce top 75R. That way I have a bright soprano and a mellow soprano. At least that's what I'm telling my wife :cool:.

I'm looking at the all mahogany 25,35,38 ukes. Not being able to put my hands on them to test is a bit frustrating so I'm wondering if there is anybody who has played these models and can tell me if the neck profiles are the same. I played two of the Ohana concert ukes (a CK-25 and a PCK-25 pineapple) and the necks were different thicknesses.

Basically I'm trying to match the quality of my 75R with an all mahogany uke that has the same neck thickness as my 75R.

I bought an Ohana for a holiday gift for a friend's daughter from MIM, and she sells a lot of Ohanas. You might wish to email her and ask your question. I found her to be extremely quick and thorough as a vendor. She often publishes videos to answer customer requests.

Yes to this. I've bought three Ohanas from Mim and she's always been helpful in choosing one that worked for me. I have the SK-35G and loooove it! I don't have large hands or long fingers, so the neck is perfect for me.

+1 for Mim.

I have the SK-25 and it is excellent! Lovely mellow mahogany tone. I have not played any other soprano Ohanas, so I can't comment there, but the SK-25 is hard to beat.
