I have many Sopranos, I've Lost count ???? $100 - $1000+
Many hawaiian, Many vintage Japanese 1960 - 1970, 2000, USA mahogany (1920 - 2000)
What would you considered mid-range ??? needs/ desires/ wood/ Cost?
I would like to help you. I feel bad that many of these ukes don't get played.

You've apparently had at least 4 nibbles. It might help to list what you've rejected so far and why. You haven't given much detail about budget or features you're looking for.

Soprano, I have a sopranino(great fun). Solid wood, mahogany cedar, koa. American. Mainly strumming little picking. $250-350 range. Thanks for the input.

It's always frustrating to respond to "wanted" ads like this and get silence as a response.

Hmm, solid wood and "American" limits your choices substantially. Sailor Brand is a little bit north of your budget. Spruce House S-0 or S-1 is worth considering though they are solid top only (all solid Banner series is over your budget). If "American" is not required, that opens you up to a number of other options like KoAloha Opio, Mainland, KPK, Cocobolo maybe.

I had gifted my mainland. So maybe I'm missing something but when one sends a private message isn't that what it is, and not silence.
