    It is amazing that we have so many options.
    That's part of what I love about the ukulele. There's choice of body size, choice of neck length, put a ukulele head / neck on a banjo - banjolele, but it with a guitar, etc. And that doesn't begin to address wood choices, cutouts, cutaways, etc. Ukuleles are are awesome!

    Haven't read the entire thread, but maybe a steel body resonator, at least it shouldn't wear out!

    This survey has been done before, and the tenor always wins, followed by the concert and the soprano.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Currently concert scale has more votes than tenor scale, if you count the small bodied versions.
    Depending on how many "long neck sopranos" are tenor scale.
    Concert + LNS = 29+9 = 38
    Tenor + LNC = 30+3 =33
    Interesting.

    Good point! But, the question was "if you could only have one uke" nothing about scale, I prefer concert scale, but if I could only have one uke, I'd keep my old Martin, it's amazing.

    Yeah, I prefer concert scale but voted tenor because my favorite uke is a tenor. Same same. This poll is a bit different this way. But still, I imagined that on average the scale preferences would show through.

    Also, it's just a snapshot in time. I voted LN Soprano even though I don't currently own one. Less than a week later, I'm thinking I would just keep my Opio standard soprano.

    I like the playability of my Concert, but I like the sound and versatility of my Cut-away Tenor. A Long Neck would add to that.

    That being said, I am drawn to a Baritone my local shop has ó the richness and fullness wraps itís mellifluous arms around me.

    One day, perhaps.
    Perhaps, one day.
