    You got it keenonuke. Its all about the math. Short scale...short distance between the frets. Long scale...long space between the frets. Think of a bass guitar with 2 inches spacing at the first fret, and a sopranino with 5/8" at the first fret. Scale divided by 17.817 = first fret spacing....etc

    It's a scale length that I kind of like but the old Harmony Vita-uke is the only model I know of with that scale. I've been presuming there are/were more out there and I'm wondering if anyone can help me out!
    Hi, I am Peter Morande of Morande Instruments.
    I could build you a beautiful looking / sounding / playing 14" scale length ukulele with your choice of a Soprano or Concert sized body, if interested you are welcome to reach out to me via UU or via email(listed below).

    I have to agree, Kevin makes a beautiful playing an sounding 14" scale soprano ukulele.
    I'd always recommend his ukes, great builder and friend of mine.

    I was wondering if my thinking is correct that a longer scale necessarily has wider fret spacing than a shorter one. Does a longer scale necessarily guarantee that or no?
    Yes, the longer the scale length the more spacing you'll have in between the frets.

    Think of how a soprano plays and feels vs. a concert vs. a tenor.
