Hail fellows well met,
I have recently been on a mighty quest, albeit in vain, to find an Epiphone Les Paul Uke in England.
Then a thought occurred, I LOVE the neck on my trusty Savannah SU-120, so, if I'm going to upgrade why not investigate their higher end range. Trouble is... I can't find a damn thing on the web relating to a Savannah range!
So, could some kind computer literate person point me in the general direction of their website please?

Aloha Ted,
I believe that Savannah and Rogue is made in the same factory in china..because they are striking alike....not competely sure though..

They are superb for the money aren't they? Less than a decent bottle of wine. I am seriously considering buying another, taking the neck off and sticking it on a Dolphin ( or similar body ) Should be a hit on you tube!!!

they are my daily players..love them to death...and I play them more than my expensive ukes..in fact I got
2 baritones and 2 sopranos.. of the same..throw some martin m600 and the sing..but I like the stock factory
strings... many ukers scoff at them...

The 'Savannah' baritone is a pretty cool instrument, especially considering the ultra-low price. I wrote a review of it in the 'Reviews' part of the UU Forum. I agree that they look a lot like the Rogue, but I have never played a Rogue, so I can't tell if they're the same. Don't know anything about the 'Savannah' sopranoes, though, even if they look like Rogues too. There is also a cheapo brand named TNA, which seems to be made by the same factory, judging from the looks. These instruments are all Chinese.

both savannah and rogue only have sopranos and baritones...and no concerts..quite similiar in that sense too.
whether it is a coincidence or what they seem to look alike..

Don't fancy a baritone, too big, too much like a guitar for me. So..... I reckon I will buy two TWO SU-120's and use the necks on different bodies.Need two as I'm bound to bugger up the first attempt. Should be fun!!

I believe that Savannah banjos are marketed by Johnson. Maybe ukes also? Johnson according to www.fretstore.com
