Is the 20 string instrument on that page by any chance a Sympitar (http://beyondthetrees.com/sympb.htm)?

What is the scale length and nut width?
How is the action?
Just curious;
but I do have new Koa Pili Koko tenor in h/case just in from MGM.
It is nice, but i like longer scale.

the nut width is 1 1/2 inches
the scale lenghth is about 430mm
lower bought is 8 inches
depth is 3 1/4
action to me is nice and low but i am really a guitar guy and just now getting into the ukes
the label says tenor but to me it measures the same size as a baritone so i don't think it is a long scale tenor. i ordered a case for a tenor and mf sent be 2 of them and neither fit.

Maybe I'm missing something but 430 mm equals roughly 17", the same scale length as all my tenors. The other measurements seem to be consistent with tenors as well.

yes, that's the same uke I got and same dealer; mgm. I played it only a couple times.
I am looking for a bari with a 19" scale, and a tenor with an 18" scale.

were I happy with the KoaPiliKoko scale, 17.125", I 'd say it was a great uke for me, but a little short.
I believe Kelii who makes them (imported), used to have a bit longer tenor scale. It looks great and sounds great.

heck then i'll change the title to tenor uke. i am new to ukes anyway. why in the heck will the thing not fit in the tenor cases from musicians friend?
they are supposed to be tenor cases but they are too small for the uke

If you're wanting to sell/trade, I would suggest making a separate thread in this section.

it may be a wider body?
or unconventional total length. '
My long scale tenors need baritone cases, even though they are just a tad too long for tenor case.
so, they leave a lot of room in the bari case.
You will find most companies and builders stick to "conventional" measure, but some just wont fit.
