    I’m definitely picking Soprano over any other size if there’s only 1 choice. I did try to like tenor but I just can’t.

    I have already made the choice and for me it is a long-necked tenor. I actually have two, one for each tuning. That's it for me. I don't have UAS.

    I guess I'd choose a baritone, as you can always use a capo to get it up to a higher pitch. I also love the full sound and the scale length.

    For me, no contest! (See my sig)
    All power and respect to you Concert,Tenor and Baritone players, but Soprano is what does it for me every time! (And my beautiful Sopranino!)

    I'm with Rakelele - with a baritone you've got all the scale lengths covered so it's the most versatile for me.

    Tough choice!!

    Whilst my most expensive uke is actually a long neck concert - if I really could only have one uke - it would just have to be a long neck soprano.

    I still love my long neck sopranos, ever since I got my first laminate one a few years back, & then got a solid mahogany to join it.

    I would certainly miss my long neck concerts, but the long neck soprano just has the edge, for me.

    I have a Pono baritone that has such rich tone that it is definitely my choice.

    In general I consider myself a concert man, but my favorite uke happens to be a Tenor.

    Peculiar question:
    Is the tenor fluke considered a long neck concert, since it has the same body as the concert fluke?
    Since the body shape is not traditional I find it a silly question.

    "Since the body shape is not traditional I find it a silly question"

    In my view, it is a silly question for any body shape. It is very simple - if it has a tenor scale length, then it is a tenor. If it has a concert scale length, it is a concert. This whole "long neck" thing is a misnomer, and can lead to unnecessary misunderstandings.

    That is my verdict. I have pronounced.
