Just curious if there are any instruments with this scale that don't cost an arm and a leg. Of course I found the Kamaka Long Neck (http://www.theukulelesite.com/kamaka-tenor-long-neck.html) and also the Mele Jumbo Tenor (http://meleukulele.com/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=54&cat=Jumbo+Tenor+Ukuleles) but that's about it. Any others?

Not likely.

Closest is getting a baritone and tuning it gcea using the right string set (eg: Aquila baritone gcea set)

Yes, lots of inexpensive ukulele's with a 19" scale length. 19" scale is what both Bruceweiart and Taisamlu use on their baritone ukulele's. Find them both on eBay.

No your right. Baritones traditionally were 19". Many maker started making them with a scale length of 20"+ and the traditional 19" length became an odd ball.

I also found that the Wolfelele Baritone has a 19" neck.

If my math is right, the Bruko baritone is just under 19" scale: http://brueko.de/en/standardmodels/sechzehner.html
48cm / 2.54 = 18.9in
