    But it's probably really 1&2 tied for first and #3 is 2nd.
    Lol NewKid, looks like you answered your own question about diminishing returns on the other thread you started

    After owning two Kanile'as, not a Kanile'a. After playing about fifty Kamakas, not a Kamaka.

    1. I'll keep my Koaloha concert.
    2. Still want a Mya Moe concert, with a 1 1/2" nut and flat fret board, (Koa w/ Cedar top, Gloss finish)
    3. Chuck Moore concert (again 1 1/2" nut, flat fret board.)

    I have quite a few ukes and a constant rotating stock, but only two are going to remain keepers, at this time. So,

    #2, 1950's Harmony baritone, all solid mahogany
    #1, 1920's no name solid birch soprano (slightly smaller than your average soprano)

    I'm hoping to one day make my Donaldson concert part of the top three list. Still on his waiting list though. But, as they say, good things come to those who wait.

    Well... I only have 2 ukes now, Kala flame maple travel tenor and another Kala all solid Acacia Tenor.

    So here it goes:
    #1: Kala all Solid Acacia Tenor
    #2: Kala flame maple travel tenor

    Of coz, my dream uke will be a Moore Bettah! Imagine there is a beautiful mermaid inlay across the fretboard with the long fin extended to the sound hole... Lol.... But I think it will never come true, Moore Bettah uke is just too far away from me I guess...

    #1 - my early 70s Kamaka Soprano I got for a steal

    #2 - KPK Acacia Concert; great sound and easy to play, my everyday uke

    #3 - my newly acquired KPK Deluxe Acacia Pineapple Soprano; sounds very much like the Kamaka and has a
    beautiful koa-like grain and flame.

    Kamoa E3 Pineapple Soprano
    Martin S-O (given to my brother for Christmas with the stipulation he learns to play it)
    Early-70s Kamaka Soprano
    KPK Acacia Concert (given to a friend for his birthday because he wanted to learn to play ukulele)
    KPK Deluxe Long Neck Acacia Pineapple Soprano
    Gretsch Concert Resonator
    Lanikai O-8 Spruce/Ovangkol 8 String Tenor
    and various guitars
