    I just measured them and the concert is 38mm at the nut (1.5") and the long neck soprano is 37mm. Very close. Both very comfortable necks.

    Huh! Did Koaloha change their necks along the way?
    The concert I had was definitely more slender than that.

    Not sure if Koaloha changed their nut specs. Definitely not as slim as both my Kamaka HF-2 concert and long neck pineapple soprano (nut measured at 35mm), which are also shallower. The Koalohas are definitely more slender neck-wise than the Kanile’a K1-C I had before.

    I looked for videos of the mahogany concert and had little success. Do you have any links to your uke or the same model?
    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure UkuleleEddy has the long neck sop in hog and he says he likes it better than the koas. While that's of course objective, he's owned enough nice ukes that I think that's worth something.

    Do you know about how much shipping would be to southern California for the Koaloha KSM-02 long neck soprano?
