What size?

LoPrinzi is worth looking at as well.

Might be slightly out of your price range, but check out Mele

All solid, solid top/lam b&s, or all lam?
True mahogany, or one of the unrelated woods marketed as mahogany (like sapele, or nato, or okoume)?
Brand new or vintage?

I own 3x Ohana solid mahogany ukes, (SK30M, SK30L, CK35L), so I'm going to say Ohana. :)

Pono MT is a great bargain. If still $399 with HSC that can’t be beat. I have at AT which is the acacia tenor. I love it! I’ve also played the MGT Mango tenor. Also very nice. I’m sure the MT is good. For me, I like the Pono satin finish entry series better than their gloss.
My brother got a mainland and it’s very nice mahogany tenor. I like the build and sound of my AT better however.

The Ohana tenor looks to be well built. Good reviews but I’ve never played one.

Good luck!

I have a 2011 Mainland Mahogany tenor. One of my sweetest ukes. That would be my vote out of your choices.

I would second the Anuenue AMM3, I have had mine a couple of weeks now and it's a great instrument.

Thanks all. I appreciate it. Once I sell a guitar or mandolin, looks like a Pono-maybe the hog; maybe the Acacial
