Wondering if anybody's put hands on one of these yet: http://www.brueko.de/shop/product_info.php?info=p119_Concert-Ukulele-Jumbo-Sitka-Spruce-Mahogany.html&XTCsid=8kc3pnopl36vks9irb7mqdlbo3

Seems interesting, except I'd think the larger lower bout would be more desirable on a tenor or baritone.

Any thoughts?

Doesn't send me, but I'm happy with the little SK-21. . .

Looks fine to me Bruko ukes have a good reputation. I like the look of the Rosewood concert they have at the moment.

Hey Connor:

I think this would make for a bit more volume and suitable for low G. Like those bell-shaped concerts (kamaka and sonny d) i'm thinking. I also have a Lyon & Healy tenor, actually much closer to a concert in scale length. It benefits from a lower tuning or even low G.

Looks more like a shortscale tenor.
