I like the concert size! What does the "hard case" option look like? I'm curious whether or not a Uke Leash headstock strap would fit on one of those brackets... the strap is 1/2" wide.

Anyone know what the measurement is at the nut? I am sure it is wider than the 13/16ths of my may bell, but is it as wide as a regular Mainland?

Ah-ha, now I see it, but I don't think I saw it earlier today. Looks like a really nice case. What color is the inside?

We'll have the sopranos in a month or so.
More pics of the cases coming today(the inside is black).
The space beside the brackets is exactly 1/2".
Nut width is 35mm.
I played one for hours last night, I'm pretty happy with them.

A banjo uke video I saw nearly three years ago was what made me want to start playing the uke, and I've wanted one since. This seems like a nice, and affordable one, and I have the money for one from Christmas, but I need to save for a new computer (my current PC has had to be brought back from the brink of death about three times the past year). This is awfully tempting.

Will they be available from UK suppliers? I know EagleMusicShop.co.uk sell Mainlands.

Thanks for posting that video DeG! I have never thought of owning a Banjo Uke, but that is extremely cool.

Hoosierhiver, you should go ahead and change your signature to say, "Yeah, I am the F'n man..."

I'm waiting for one of those Soprano banjo-ukes, unless I can't wait and give in to the UAS and purchase a Concert size. Oh help me!

Ok, you got me. I have placed my order! Went with the hard case, knowing how difficult it might be to find one that fits just right. My justification is that it is a business expense (Uke Leash development y'know) and it will be great as a demo at the Uke Leash booth.
Now, the wait...

Woohoo! We could have a Mainland Banjo Band! I ordered mine yesterday and just got notice that it shipped today. Should arrive next Wednesday. I'm practicing clawhammer while I wait. I suck at it though.
