Ya ... nice sounding! I like them.

John and Andrew offer value that can't be matched at all of their price points. Congrats to Pono and HMS.

Don't be doing this to me. I have an addictive personality.

I already own a cedar/hog but the acacia sounds tasty.

Ya. True. I now own three of them. Variety is the spice of life, right ?

My UAS is solidly in remission, so I can look and dream all I want. They look and sound nice, but that acacia is just lovely.

Me too Jenny....I'm thinking after the Ohana is fixed, and the Kala neck is reshaped, I'm in remission too. I want a hammered dulcimer. I actually got made fun of by our club prez for having so many ukes when I got up to 6. I don't need that many. Besdies, we live in a tiny house. It's so crowded I hafta sleep on hte edge of the bed!

Same body depth though I bet. Deal breaker for me. Unless I could get my hands on one of their rosewood and spruce models.

No, the TA-AD has a smaller body depth--two inches.

But I'm with you on the body depth. Ponos sound fabulous, but I have a Kelii concert that has a "shallower" body and I like that. Pono tenors have always looked kinda too chunky to me, all around. I'm a short female, and most tenors kinda seem too big, which is why I haven't bought one yet. Whenever I do buy one I'll have to try it out first, which means going somewhere other than Sam Ash. Maybe I'll save up for one of these, if I can ever get my hands on one: http://www.theukulelesite.com/matsui-custom-dias-replica-tenor.html

I understand the body depth issue and I did not quite fully appreciate the difference between my Pono ATSHC-PC and my Cordoba until I played it. For me, it was just getting used to it. I understand for others how it might be an issue. The bottom line is that I love love love the sound of my new Pono.

The shallow body depth is appealing. I was considering a KoAloha thinline tenor, but I will place that hunt on hold until these new Ponos arrive (unless someone has a thinline KoAloha to sell or trade).

Intriguing.

I really liked the Acacia thin line model ... and I usually find Acacia a little dull, and not really resonant.

With Gotoh UPT's on it, and that radius fret board ... it is a very nice sweet spot!

I'm particularly liking the new Baritone Nui Pro Classic.

I completely agree with you; I have one on the way.
