Solid spruce top, laminate mahogany back and sides “Tiny Tenor” (tenor scale, shorter overall length) purchased on August 17 of this year from uke-fan.com (who inspects/sets up ukes before shipping).

The sound is full and strong with sustain to match, and the intonation is excellent on the entire neck. The ukulele came in low G, which sounds at least as good as the high-g (Worth Clears) I have on it now (as I already had two low-G tenors). Two black (matching the tuning pegs) strap buttons were installed by the seller (uke-fan.com, who sets up their ukes before shipping). It comes with a form-fitting hard shell case with generous inside compartment and outside pocket.

The $225 price includes CONUS shipping and Pay Pal fees (paid by me).

I’m selling because I need a thin/wide neck (and this uke has a normal nut width and neck depth), and I’ve found another uke that meets those requirements.

A (professional) sound sample in low-G can be found at https://www.theukulelesite.com/romero-creations-tt-solid-spruce-top-tiny-tenor-package.html . An amateur sound sample (by me) in high-g is at https://soundcloud.com/musicpluscomedy/tiny-tenor-in-high-gmp3 .

Phenomenal instrument, and a good price... I've got one and adore it. BTW, this has a 1.5" nut width, which is on the wide side... Amazing for fingerpicking.

neo, your review is one reason I bought my TT. I'm getting a 1 3/8" measurement at the nut . . . but I'm not good at math. Anyway, I was amazed at how great it sounds at that price. It bothers me that I need to sell it. (But that's just another First World problem for me.)

The uncertainty on the nut width might be due to the Grand Tenor having a 1.5" nut width.

Yep, you're right. It's a 35mm (1 3/8) nut. Not sure what I was thinking... Grand Tenor maybe?

Sorry you've decided to sell, but you can always get another later. And someone else can get a good deal now!

I'm going to close this thread so that I can start over without the ukulele's age and price in the thread title, as each one has changed. Stay tuned . . .
