I had one of those Ohanas a few years back. Sounded great and was a blast to play...kind of felt like a banjo but sounded like a uke! I moved it on to a good home, but I've kind of regretted letting it go...

Super-duper soprano. I believe that's the correct terminology! ;)

Other than custom, I believe that's it.

Actually, they are soprano body, concert neck. At least the one I have is.

KoAloha makes a soprano body, tenor neck. The Ukulele Site has them from time-to-time. Here's an older listing, just so you can check it out:

Commonly known as Giraffe Neck, at least in the Seasons it is, a few of us have the Ohana SK30L, great little uke. :)

Didn't know about the KoAloha, :uhoh: - that just might start up my UAS again if I see one......no mustn't even think about it!

I had one of them Ohanas too... this is me 12 years ago at my 50th birthday party with mine. I've long since sold it off... I barely recall owning it

...as the hot dogs burn beyond recognition... just kidding !!!! I too had the Ohana; it had a great banjo'y jangle, and you could really feel the body vibrate when you played it. Loved the headstock shape too. I made disposition of mine, but may consider getting another some day !

Now I'm really wanting one of them KoAloha super duper soprano!

Is Ohana still making their version or has it been discontinued?

Thanks for clarifying that. I got confused by their statement: "Jake Shimabukuro Wideneck Soprano Ukulele With Tenor Range", which sounded to me like a tenor neck, with the 18 frets that they say it has. But, it also does say that it's a longneck soprano with a 15" fretboard, so a concert neck it is. Thanks.

I heard back from Koaloha...they discontinued the tenor neck model. Ohana still has them, and I just ordered one thru Mims.
