  • Typically there are 3 common sizes. Soprano (small), concert (medium) and tenor (large). When comparing a concert ukulele to a soprano ukulele, the concert ukulele has a slightly larger body, longer, thicker and wider neck and a few more frets. The same can be said when comparing a tenor ukulele to a concert ukulele. Jake and Bruce both use Kamaka tenor ukuleles and believe they are the best out there when it comes to feel and playability. When designing Shima Ukulele, Jake designed the wide neck of the instrument to re-create and share the playing experience of his own custom tenor ukulele.Shima Ukulele consists of a soprano body, a concert-length neck with the thickness and width of Jake’s tenor ukulele. A soprano body with a concert-length neck (aka soprano longneck) has been around for many years. The pronounced width and thickness of the neck is a unique feature of the Shima Ukulele, and is the reason we introduce it as the “JS Soprano Wide-neck”. It also has the same amount of frets (18 frets) as a tenor which allows the same arrangements to be played. We proudly present the “JS Soprano Wide-neck w/ Tenor Range”.
