I've been looking around because I really want one. Now I don't want to spend TOO much. I need a tenor, and the ones I've found so far are the eleuke, the risa stick, and another electric. I'm looking for the $300 dollar range, which I know is low... but yeah. Do you guys know of any others?

That's a soprano sized fretboard?

My bad. I thought they made all sizes.

I'd go with Eleuke. I have a concert and I love it. Jupiter Creek looks nice...but is expensive..and hard to contact.

They might for all I know. I really like the risa electric

488 is probably a bit much for me though.... sadly. I need to be saving not spending haha.

Risa also has these (http://ukuleleworld.com/product.php?productid=1026&cat=0&page=1) and the look has grown on me since I first looked at it, I just don't know about the friction tuners, I've never even used any before.

Yeah and its a bit difficult to find much info on their site I found. Great lookin ukes, but you look at the base price, and then add on all the stuff that I would want and it would be 500+
