So after getting home from our Hawaiian holiday, Im thinking about a few of the tenors I sampled at Sam's. I'm a soprano/concert guy, not yet ventured into the larger sect, but those few I played sounded really sweet. I ended up reading a couple reviews on the Pono ETSH, and next thing I know I'm trading phone calls and emails with Andrew at HMS. After some discussion on what I was looking for visually and sound-wise, Andrew spent the time to go through his stock and select a few that stood out. He emailed me a few photos, we discussed string selection, and I'm happy to say I now own a beautiful Macassar ebony/cedar top tenor, strung in low G (another first for me). Not only is this a gorgeous looking machine , the sound is symphonic!

Once again, Andrew (HMS) exceeded all expectations!

Very nice. I'm sure you'll enjoy that. They make very few Macassar's. And for anyone in the market, I have a tenor cutaway Macassar with spruce top for sale.

That would have been my choice. That Uke is sweet

Thanks for the comments, y'all. Andrew actually talked me into the low G on this one...and I'm glad he did!
He included a high G string set just in case it wasn't my cup of tea, but I'm sold. It's not necessarily better, just different. In a very, very good way.

Yes, Yes, ain't they lovely. My gf and I each have one and they get a ton of play time. Congrats on a great Uke.
