As stated in title, its a bit niche I know ...

I've seen the Vintage, which is fairly budget.

And the Seagull, which is isn't ...

Not a Risa stick sorry I'm sure they are great but the looks creep me out, like a headless uke :)

There was these, but I wondered if uncomfortable to play ...

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Risa also makes a steel string version (kidney bean shaped and the Les Paul ones).
Konablaster may have sopranos but they’re mainly Baritones. Elderly Instruments carries them.

Risa also does the Uke’Ellie which has a headstock. They rarely show up so I’m not sure if they’re still making those

Those Bohemian oil can ukes look like they may be concert scale looking at the fret board.

RISA used to make a steel string soprano, might get one pre used, the affore mentioned Uke Ellie comes in soprano, (I have the tenor version), & there was a Mahalo Surf Board that was a soprano, (I have the concert scale version).

Other than those, I cant think of any more solids.

There's eleuke. http://www.eleuke.com/ I've not tried one myself, only because I play left-handed.

Duke of Uke say they are soprano scale, I've never checked the size.

I guess soprano players don't rock :rock::music:

If you go back and Edit, you can sometimes add the links.

I've tried those oil can electric ukes at a music store - they are steel string and the action is very high.
They did not feel comfortable to play at all

Why a soprano? With a solid body, would there be a difference in the sound between the sizes?

I have a Clearwater / Vorsan steel string tenor, Clearwater nylon string, and a Mahalo surfboard nylon. The last to are listed as concert size. They all sound about the same through the amp. More sounds with the steel string because of the multiple pickups.

It isn't the sound, it's the scale. :)

Yes that, I like the feel of the soprano, but I might have to go to a concert if what I'm looking for isn't readily available ;)

The Fluke SB is worth a mention then.

It totally is!!! Because I had no clue it existed :-)

I know I'm looking for a fairly niche thing, so thanks everyone for your input.
