    Why Mango?

    Here's a couple of mangos in more unusual sizes. World of Ukes compared 4 Millar long neck sopranos. One of them is an all solid mango version. World of Ukes also has a couple of Millar all solid mango jumbo tenors.

    New more affordable Pono model in development ...

    Removing the truss rod from tenors could save some money. I wonder if Pono will offer a thinner neck in the new models. Some people don't buy Ponos because of the thicker necks.

    Please, somebody buy this

    The ukulele looks like there are small scratches and dings on both sides. I would be too nervous to spend $750+ on an old uke with obvious signs of wear and tear from a thrift store without inspecting it in person.

    Please, somebody buy this

    ShopGoodwill has a vintage C.F. Martin & Co uke. Current bid: $628. I wonder if the person who donated the uke to Goodwill realized how much it was worth.

    NUD: Flight Fireball

    The one negative Alex from SUS mentions about the Flight Fireball is that some customers say that the Fireball isn't loud enough when playing friends. Hence the reason why he developed the Flight Carabao. He wanted to combine the projection and volume from a spruce top and the sweet sound of mango.

    Anuenue AMM2 vs Kiwaya KPC-1M

    The Enya EUC MS is a solid mahogany concert with satin finish, 36 mm nut, and radius fretboard. Baz did a review of it. Granted, if you are looking at aNueNue, Kiwaya, Loprinzi, etc. then the budget Enya EUC MS for $110 might not be what you want.

    You might try to contact the LA public library to see if they accept donations for their ukulele program. I don't know who runs the program, but Marc Horton is listed the original grant application. https://www.library.ca.gov/services/to-libraries/copycat-grants/uke-can-do-it/

    NUD (L. Luthier Le Light Koa S) and a cautionary tale about "koa"

    In the comments for that May 5 2022 video, Matty pointed out that L Luthier used Formosan Koa, and SUS said they were going to change their listing. Since L Luthier is a new brand to SUS, I'm assuming SUS just posted whatever specs L Luthier provided.

    Opinions on Millar SP-240W

    How would you compare the sound of the UC3K and L. Lutheir Le Light Koa S? Both UC3K and Le Light have wider bodies, so I'm assuming they would sound deeper than more normal size concerts.

    I'm thinking about getting a tenor...

    aNueNue T30 is all solid mahogany tenor for $280. The Hawaiian Dream series are built at a larger factory, while the AMM and bird series are built in a smaller factory, hence the difference in quality and price. aNueNue USA has some T30, HMS is out of stock.
