This is a great baritone ukulele made of all solid mahogany. It has a satin finish and beautiful tone and playability. It comes with a truss rod with key and the original hard shell case. I bought this used about a year ago and I love it, however, I find myself playing my tenor ukes almost exclusively and this one is just collecting dust so I'm hoping to find someone who will be playing it.

Here is the description from a dealer's site:

Over the past few years Ko'olau has been working along with some of the best professional luthiers out there. These instrument craftsman and artists were formerly building classical guitars. Ko'olau has taught them to make an amazing ukulele. Slowly, but consistently Ko'olau has improved the tone and feel of the Ponos'. The sound and feel of the Pono MB -(mahogany baritone) is a great example of that. Plus, it's made to last. It features only top notch solid woods, bone nut and saddle, high quality geared tuning keys, and a light weight, dual action, adjustable truss rod.

Solid Mahogany top, back, and sides.
Rosewood faceplate, fingerboard, and bridge.
Rope marquetry rosette, pearl logo and fingerboard position dots.
Bone nut and saddle. Satin finish.
Total length: 30"
Body Length: 14"
Body width/Upper bout/Lower bout: 7-9/16" 10-1/16"
Body Depth upper bout/Lower bout: 2-11/16" 3-3/16"
Fingerboard width at nut and 12th fret: 1-3/8" 1-13/16"
Soundhole diameter: 2-7/8"
Scale length: 20-1/8"

This one has two minor cosmetic defects. One is a very slight scratch on the back about 3/4" long. The other is at the bottom strap button - there is a small chip in the wood and what looks like excess glue in an apparent attempt to fix it. At a certain angle, the glue spot (about 1/4" square) is shiny. Otherwise, it is not that noticeable. The last two photos show these cosmetic issues.

This uke sells new for $399 before tax, so this is a great deal. You have 30 days to return it if you are unhappy for any reason.

Thanks for looking.
