I'm looking for a concert sized uke on the lower end of the price range preferably solid wood... something like the Pono MC or open to suggestions! :)

Pono MC, Kala KA-SMHC, and Mainland Classic Mahogany all seem to fit the bill for you (Kala and Mainland are at least very close to your price, Pono a bit more).

I have played all of these (but in the tenor size), and prefer the Mainland by a significant margin. Surprisingly, it is also the cheapest of the three.

Ohana's CK series is in that range, too, and they're excellent ukes. Mims Ukes is the place to go for Ohanas. Great dealer, excellent setup, pleasure to deal with.

On ebay, see $200 (still there) Mainland, Kala solid mahogany, and Bushmen Jenny concerts.

Don't forget Cordoba's mahogany concert (Cordoba CM15 model number I think). They are usually $99.00 and Guitar Center just had 'em for $79.00. Great uke for the money. Several sound bites on YouTube.

FYI: there is a very similar, recent (7/9/2016) thread discussing ~$200 concert ukes over here:
