Default Baritone Ukulele Size Tenor Guitar

I was reading another article that got me interested again in something I have been thinking about for awhile. Is there such an instrument as a Tenor Guitar the size of or slightly larger than a Baritone Ukulele? Maybe the same body size as a baritone with a slightly longer scale.

Here you go:

Our band's vocalist has the earlier rosewood version, that she keeps in "Chicago"/baritone uke DGBE tuning - just slightly bigger than a baritone uke, sweet tone that blends well with other instruments (she also uses it with the community uke ensemble), and definitely an attention-getter at our shows...

Hi J.S.

Pono also makes very nice super baritones: koolauukulele.com/pono-f.a.q

I bought a Pono NUI which has a very lovely well defined koa voice.

I consider it a double baritone, and is loud enough to set the pace in uke ensembles.

It is not loud enough to play with an acoustic guitar.

steel string tenor guitar is good with acoustic guitars. And the four strings and smaller size are much easier to handle than full size guitars.

Cheers.

The one Steven mentioned above looks nice and shounds like a good deal. I am going to keep looking for awhile while I convience my wife (mother/boss) that we need to buy one. LOL I fell in love with the sound of a Tenor after I came to Ukulele due to a damaged neck, left arm, and hand. I am recovering, however, I do not think I will ever again be able to play 6 string and that does not matter since I like the Tenor Sound. I especially like the shorter scale of the Tenor. It is almost as short as my Kala Baritone.
