At the NAMM show in January, Ohana has presented some promising new models. While some of them have since hit the market (various Sopranino and Sopranissimo models), I have not heard anything about others that were of interest to me and others here (see my "News from NAMM (https://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/showthread.php?131224-Ukulele-Related-News-from-NAMM-2018)" thread).

So, has anyone ever heard again from Ohana's Guitar models? Their Tenor Guitar? Or their eagerly awaited crossing of a Baritone body with a Tenor neck (A.K.A. "Stubby Baritone", "Big Bodied Tenor", "Short Scale Baritone")?

Here are some of the pictures of these models that were posted during NAMM:

That short-scale baritone has my attention . . . I hope there will be some good sound samples (i.e., not from the NAMM floor, and not "sweetened" by the seller) before long. I just got on the baritone bus with a new purchase, and I'm wondering where it might take me.

I believe that Uke Republic is expecting some of the bari-tenors in September, but I don't know if they have arrived yet.

Thanks Mikhou! Great info, and a great name you came up with: Baritenor. Ohana should reward you with a free instrument for providing them with a label for their instrument.

I still wonder about their tenor guitar, though: Scale length, nut width, steel or nylon strings…?

I'll take it. If they read this thread and ask for an address, I'll be ready! ;)

I've heard "baritenor" used to describe a singer whose range includes both baritone and tenor. So I think the rewards might have to be shared . . . sorry.

It was worth a shot for a new uke. ;)

Sure, why not. How about "concertenor"?
