    I have a Lanikai zebrawood tenor and an Eleuke tenor. The Eleuke is cool but jack is a little wonky.

    My 86 year old sister in law owns two Martin ukes she has had since she was a teenager.
    One is regular size, the other a good bit larger. (I don't know squat about ukes.)
    She is good on the uke and incredibly musical singing and playing.
    I was surprised the first time I heard her play/sing.

    Just bought this Kala about a month ago. Solid Spruce top, Koa sides and back, Mohagany neck with Pau Ferro board and synthetic bone nut and bridge. It was $150 delivered from Musicians Choice as one of their deals of the day. Very happy with it, nice full range sound and sustain for a Uke. I took some material off the bridge to lower the action a bit, but that's all I'll do. Would have spent a lot more and bought one sooner if I had known it was this nice sounding and playable.

    I second this. I got an inexpensive Lanikai soprano that was OK, but I wanted a wider neck. I looked at a lot of ukuleles, and the vast majority were about that same width. Eventually, I found a Mele concert-sized ukulele that has a wider, thinner neck, and I find it to be more comfortable to play.
