I've read that Mele has thinner neck tenors.

How are Kala's?

any others?

Not looking for a Baseball bat

thanks

The Luna ukuleles have daintier necks.

And they're pretty.

I find the neck on my Kala KA-TG to be about the same thickness as my Ohana SK-35G neck, which is thinner than some other sopranos I have played. I don't like thick necks either, and the Kala tenor feels nice in my hand.

My Lanikai is pretty thin. At $125ish, I'm not sure if that is expensive enough to qualify as mid priced but I'm not complaining.

I know what you mean about too thick, some of the cheaper no name ukes are like that... the nicest feeling ones I've tried have been the Kelii, Melokia, KPK tenors. I haven't been lucky enough to get say a Kamaka, Ko'aloha or Kanilea, but I bet those feel good, tooo! Ohhh droool!:drool:

Mele's have very thin necks - but may be hard to find. Check out http://www.meleukulele.com

I have a koa concert and love it (also a KALA Acacia tenor - the difference in the neck thickness is considerable)
