    Blackbird Clara. I don’t dare spend $1300+ sight unseen (hearing unlistened?, touch unfelt?).

    i had to think about this for a few minutes. When I bought my Kala solid cedar top tenor cutaway, I compared it to a couple of $1000+ K brands and didn't feel they were 3 times better, so that was my hands on experience. Then I wanted an Ovation tenor but missed out on an eBay auction and ultimately bought a Godin Multiuke in the Marketplace that is a much better instrument. Not long ago a tenor plastic fretboard walnut Fluke came up in the Marketplace and decided to buy it with so much hype I've heard and read, but I don't find it all that comfortable to play with the neck shape.

    It would be nice to try a Beau Hannam, Mya Moe, LFdM, Moore Bettah but I don't think I'd actually buy one since I'm so happy with the ones I have.

    I'd like to try a 19" scaled baritone, (mahogany or cedar), I have 19.75" & 20.125" scales, but they are 'a little bit big' & 'too big', for me, so I reckon the old 19" would be the right scale length for my hands.

    I'm not into expensive ukes, just good players, at sensible prices, so no fancy K brands required.
    Trying to do justice to various musical instruments.

    None! If I try it, I'll probably like it and buy it.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    I just sat down and made a list of all the ukes I've owned over the 2+ years I've been playing. Quite a variety of brands & sizes. Waterman, Teton, Islander, Bonanza, Famous, Imua, Loprinzi, Gary Gill, KoAloha, aNueNue, and Blackbird. I just picked up a Kanilea for the first time this week. I've always wanted to try one. Now I'm starting down the string experimentation road with it. So many wonderful & ever evolving choices.

    A Martin. I don't know why, in fact I haven't thought about it up until this thread, but a Martin.
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.

    I'd love to get my hands on a Romero Creations Tiny Tenor (probably the solid mahogany model.) Also, a Blackbird Clara would be an interesting experience.

    (Funny how I seem to be focused on some non-conventional designs. Probably just a personality trait! )
