Looking for a tenor with a wider nut. I'm a guitarist looking for a neck as similar as possible to guitar. I just purchased a Cordoba 20TM but the nut is a little narrow. Looking for a solid top uke with a wider. Any help would be greatly appreciated.....under $300.....$200 even better.

I believe Oscar Schmidt and Kanile'a does. But the Kanile'a is out of your price range. Or save up some more $$$ and get a Kanile'a!!

Don't know how wide you want but I just listed a Nalu Tenor on UU Marketplace that has the larger(for ukulele) nut at 38mm. It does seem bigger to folks are used to playing ukulele. Check it out

Here's that OU4W on ebay for $188 with free shipping. Looks like a tenor version of my OU5. Not loud, but gorgeous, sweet sounding, nice sustain with Aquila strings (only ones I've tried since I took factory strings off). Just saw one on Instrumentalley.com for $169.99 free standard shipping.
