What is exactly the jake's ukulele scaling dimensions ?
I found it realy look nice and fit to his body not too small or big.
especially on the ukulele body, apparently not a standard size, some says its super Tenor is it true ?
I need complete information about the overall size of the jake's uke. if anyone know, it would be really appreciated :)

Thanks.
Have a good day & strummings.

I always thought it was standard 17" scale...this video gave me a good clue on why his uke sounded so good .

Kamaka does sell a Shimabukuro uke.
It's a very nice uke but there isn't anything extraordinary about it's size or the materials used. What is extraordinary is the guy who's playing playing it. Look folks, you can play the exact uke Jake plays, use the same strings, the same pick up, practice his strumming techniques, even comb your hair the same way, you ain't gonna be Jake. If you want a ukulele to sound like the one Jake plays, start by taking any old uke you have and practice 10 hours a day...........

Thanks Chuck,
actually i'm not try to be somebody else, i'm just curious about this guy's stuff, never heard such a good sound.
as you know we live in the country where we cant find good uke, there is no singel brand uke in the market.
or made it by custom to the local luthier with bad quality :(
I seem to have to make a good one with you chuck...

Are you asking because you want to buy something similar or make a replica?
