Mahogany Tenor

What's the difference between a Concert and a Tenor ukulele?

Hey, so basically I'm getting my first ukulele next week!

I play guitar though, so I don't know anything about Ukes.

The two I'm looking at (Based on appearances, :P ) are these:

and

The thing is, I don't know the difference between Concert and a Tenor ukuleles.

Could anyone help me out here? :)

Annie,
I know you didn't ask about baritone ukulele but the baritone is strung like the first four strings of a guitar. You won't have to learn new chord fingerings and you'll be accustomed to the wider frets.
A concert is usually 24" and a tenor is usually 26". I say "usually" b/c different manufacturers use different standards for their ukulele sizes. http://www.playukulelenow.com/ukulele_sizes_9.html Basically the tenor has a bigger body and longer fret board, giving it a fuller tone and makes it easier to chord b/c the frets are farther apart. The tenor will usually have a wound C string b/c it's the lowest note on the ukulele. The C string is tuned to middle C on the piano. The G string (string closest to your chin when the ukulele is held.) is tuned to the G above middle C. This is the standard tuning of all ukuleles unless you've replaced the G string so it can be tuned to the G below middle C on the piano. Then the new string, so named low G, will be wound also. Confusing? I hope not. It's about he easiest way I can explain it.
If I were going concert I'd buy a Lanikai LU-21C. It's the best out there for the price. Look at the reviews and you'll see you get a lot of uke for the buck. You can restring it with a low G if so desired. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/navigation/lanikai-ukuleles?N=100001+202826&Ntk=All&Ntt=ukulele&Nty=1
Have fun,
