A T-4 gstring tenor @ Papua is listed here for sale, to give you a data point. This is a pretty high end one.

Shawn at UkuleleFriend.com has some periodically.

Derek Shimizu was the owner as well as a builder of GString Ukuleles. He started building in 1993 in his garage located in Kaimuki. He then moved to a shop located in Halawa Valley on the island of Oahu and relocated to Keaau on the Big Island about 2-3 years ago. The name GString comes from the top string (GCEA) of the instrument rather than using a name with the letter 'K'. I don't know if he is still building. Here's a previous thread about GString (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?31229-G-String-Ukulele-Closed-down).

Methinks you will be hard pressed to locate one for a grand.

Well, there are probably a lot of forums where you can say it, only a few family friendly forums where you can say it...

All a matter of personal preference.
