    Default Mainland Longneck Concert Pineapple

    Hi Everybody,
    I'm in the market for a new Uke and would like to try a pineapple body style but would also like something that could be strung low G. I came across the Mainland Longneck Concert Pineapple and was wondering if anyone has tried one. The site says it has a tenor size neck. So does this mean that it could be strung low G? What size strings would fit it, concert or tenor? Any help would be great.

    If it has a tenor neck, it would take tenor strings. Pretty much any uke can be strung low G - I have even strung my soprano that way for a time. I've played that Mainland long neck pineapple and its sweet.

    Got it - bought it from Uke Republic. Mine is High G presently, but it could certainly be strung Low g as Larry stated. Great tone & plenty of volume from the concert body. Was just playing it.

    Great "String Guide" on Southcoast uke site. While you can tune low g on any uke, they explain why it sounds better on longer scale ukes, up to and including the baritone!
