    There's no such thing as too many ukes.

    I'm going to pass on acquiring this or any long neck soprano until I've had a chance to change my standard KoAloha sop to low G Worth browns. I love the idea of the long neck versatility, but... part of me still wants a traditional soprano size.

    Then you’ve got a lot of work to do!

    I am a little confused. This is basically a concert neck on a soprano body?

    In this case it also gives you 2 more frets clear of the body, which is nice if you play up the neck!

    The execution is lovely! I have been building soprano ukes for travel, playing with how thin to make the body and still maintain reasonable sound - also how long of a scale length will still fit in a carry on bag (I like 340mm).
    Of course, we each have a unique set of desires in our instruments. This one, for me, goes the opposite direction. Long neck coupled with the soprano body means that I can't pack it in a carry on and still don't have the sound that a larger uke would provide.
    Vive la difference!

    I recently played a Kamaka Soprano with long scale neck. I think this is a perfect solution for someone with large hands or thicker fingers. You get a Soprano sound with much more comfortable size of the neck.
