Interesting, I just did a quick search and see what you mean. Here is one link to a concert size with these specs. Total length 58.5 cm, 38 cm scale length, 17 frets, fretboard width at saddle 36 mm. Try measuring. My guess is yours is a concert from a batch that got a 12th fret double dot fingerboard.

Double dot aside, I believe the appropriate guide more on size:

Soprano - from 19 to 21

Concert 23 to 24

More importantly though is the scale length: Measured from nut to saddle

Soprano - 13"

Concert - 15
