Is the body of the Magic Fluke tenor and concert ukuleles the same? In other words is the only difference the length of the neck and number of frets?

Thanks.

Body size is same. Neck is longer on tenor is only major size difference.

See spec chart in first post here, as well as tons of other info and discussion on Magic Fluke instruments:

I have a concert Flea as my only uke and love it!

also, looks like a good price on a used concert Fluke with case in the UU Marketplace here if you are considering one of these instruments:

I have 2 concert fleas with upgraded fretboards and pegheds as my only indoor ukes. One is tuned to low g, the other to high g.

My opinion is that the MF ukes sound great, have good intonation, and you don't have to baby them in regards to humidity. I'm hard on my 'things', so these ukes are perfect for me.

I am not doubting it, just asking if the actual size and volume (literal geometric volume) of the polycarbonate chamber of the body of the tenor and concert Flukes the same?

Length, width and depth are all given below, from which you can calculate actual volume of the space inside the sound-box:

"The tenor FLUKE has the same body size with a 17" scale" per the description toward the bottom of the page. See http://www.magicfluke.com/Fluke-Ukulele-p/fluke_standard.htm.

Thanks. That does confirm it.
