View Full Version : Question about a tenor neck compared to a concert or soprano

right now i'm playing a kala concert. i've never had anything else but just bought a custom koa ana ole tenor that i don't have yet. was wondering about necks on different instruments.

the tenor fretboard will have more space between the frets right? it's longer so i assume there's a little more room between a concert and a tenor and the baritone has more room than a tenor? so if someone gets a longneck say on a soprano pineapple then the neck will play like a whatever the neck length is but with a soprano sound.....?

so am i right? the longer the neck the further the space between frets is? .


so excited waiting for my new uke i've gotta be careful or i'll have an accident.... :drool:

Concert scale is around 15" while tenor scale is around 17". Yep, you'll have a little more space between the frets on a tenor as compared to a concert. Hope this helps...!!!

You'll like having both a concert and a tenor and its easy to switch back and forth between the two.

thanks for the replys. i thought that's what i get get for answers but was curious.

A long neck soprano has the same neck as a concert, but since the body is shorter, there are two more frets available on the before reaching the body. A LNS will also cost less than a concert. Check the specs on www.lehuaukules. The Oregon dealer is writng this post.
