..and I fell in love, wondering who could make me a similar one in baritone size with 19" scale and how much it would cost

Check with the man who made the one in your picture. Jerry Hoffman of Boat Paddle Ukulele Co. In New Haven, Mo. Check out his website: boatpaddleukuleles.com. That's his"M" Style. Not sure about price, but he can tell you. I have two of his ukes, an ML style and a kayak style. Love them both!

Obscene is the right word. That is a whole website full of uke pr0n. It's spinning up my UAS. Continued viewing will not make the wife happy. These are not the Uke's I am looking for. These are not . . . . Is it possible to pull the jedi mind trick on yourself?

If only the scale wasn't so small I could see myself playing one of those, I would put some 8 string tenor strings on it.

That's a mandolin. Regular uke strings doesn't have the tension to drive the heavier build of a mandolin.

Thats not true, I have strung a mandolin with tenor strings many times and it sounds fine. Not as loud obviously, but still sounds good, and then with a pickup it sounds great.
