You might contact Poopylungstuffing, she plays ukulele professionally (more or less).

Speaking of which, I once got to visit Hawaii USA, and went to a music shop. They had ukes of all shapes and sizes. Apparently the ones we usually see are a slightly watered down version of what they play on the islands. Some of them looked like a cross between a violin and a mandolin.
