Try Mya Moe...If you can handle the wait time. Which isn't that long compared with some custom builds.

Other wise go with the long neck pineapple by KoAloha.

I LOVE my longneck Pineapple!!! And, my Pineapple Sunday (& I also have a concert Pineapple in the queue w/Mya-Moe)

I agree. LN Pineapple rocks! If you want a hardcase for it try the Fremont soprano case. Its rectangular and holds the LN well.

The Koaloha longneck pineapple is IMO their best uke. You can't go wrong with that one.

Me, I'd choose the Kamaka pineapple though :) It's not a longneck but it does have 16 frets, and I find them all playable.

Why do prefer the Kamaka?

Mainly aesthetics. Both ukes sound amazing and are well-crafted, so really the choice between Kamakas and Koalohas for me comes down to the fact that I prefer the traditional appearance of the Kamaka.

My LN pineapple still blows me away everyday. I enjoy playing the concert scale, but love the sound of sopranos. For me this is my perfect ukulele.

Yep. Gmoney has one I believe. I have a long neck soprano (well the wife does but she never plays it). Great ukuleles.

Favorites- and I plan on getting a longneck Koaloha pineapple!

I thing the Long-neck pineapples are a special order, not sure. I've been playing KoAloha's all weekend and now I think I am looking for something a bit different.

I just decided to play a couple of my ukes back to back and see what it is about KoAloha that grabs me. The sound is great but the others sound great also.

It is the feel of the KoAloha, maybe the vibe. Whatever it is, it makes me want to play, play, play, some more.
