    I'm afraid that could be a factor. I'm "only" 51, but I haven't been kind to my hands through the years.

    I was having a problem with my left thumb which was caused by my grip. It didn’t matter which ukulele I played, I have the same size selection of ukuleles that you have. (Nice catch on that 20’s soprano banjolele.)
    I changed my grip. Maybe you could try some hand exercises and possibly a fingerless glove for you left hand.
