    Default Thinner Neck Mid-priced Tenors?

    I've read that Mele has thinner neck tenors.

    How are Kala's?

    any others?

    Not looking for a Baseball bat

    thanks

    The Luna ukuleles have daintier necks.

    And they're pretty.

    I find the neck on my Kala KA-TG to be about the same thickness as my Ohana SK-35G neck, which is thinner than some other sopranos I have played. I don't like thick necks either, and the Kala tenor feels nice in my hand.

    My Lanikai is pretty thin. At $125ish, I'm not sure if that is expensive enough to qualify as mid priced but I'm not complaining.

    I know what you mean about too thick, some of the cheaper no name ukes are like that... the nicest feeling ones I've tried have been the Kelii, Melokia, KPK tenors. I haven't been lucky enough to get say a Kamaka, Ko'aloha or Kanilea, but I bet those feel good, tooo! Ohhh droool!

    It's ouuurs, precious...It's our ukeses and we wants it, we needs it, we MUST haveses it! They might buyses it firsts, our ukeses in filthy, dirrty handses!

    Mele's have very thin necks - but may be hard to find. Check out http://www.meleukulele.com

    I have a koa concert and love it (also a KALA Acacia tenor - the difference in the neck thickness is considerable)
