PM me your best offer. Motivated seller.

I bought this uke new from Kent at Uke Academy on Oct. 24, 2014.
The uke cost me $364 and with the case I paid a total of $419.
(original receipt and placard from Uke Academy come with uke)
I have also added a Iluak Cocobolo w/ mother of pearl strap button $15 and a set of "Tenor Music" bridge beads valued at $20.
Total + accessories= $464.

This uke is in great condition. It has a few minor marks in the satin finish but you must look to find them.
Strung with Freemont Blacklines.
I have played this uke almost daily and you can hear it in the resonance of the instrument. Regardless of your perception about wood "opening up", this uke's sound is bigger and more resonant than when I purchased it. Notes vibrate up the neck and into the the headstock like no other uke I have owned. It has a great voice and has wonderful action. I can play past the 12 fret with ease.

Selling because my wife will only let me keep one uke at a time...so I need to get the Pono mango sold.

Price $290/shipping included. Or Best Offer.

The wood on the top back and sides has a 3D effect and is book matched as well.
The photos do not capture the sheer beauty of the wood on this instrument.

I have the same instrument, only a Deluxe with the gloss finish. I can attest that the sound and playability are spectacular. You can't wrong with this one, and that price is outstanding!

Never thought you'd part with this one. I didn't know you got it at the NC Uke academy, great place. Good luck with the sale. Good deal and great uke for somebody!

Hey Todd, thanks.
I know, I thought someone would have to pry this one out of my cold, dead hands but...
I cane across a once in a lifetime opportunity and scored a very special uke so the Pono MGT needs to find a new home.

I have the deluxe model also, and agree that the Pono mangos are great value.

OK,OK.. I was going to wait and do a proper NUD with a video but I am the proud, new owner of the Breedlove Prototype #3 that Tanman sold recently.

I bought the Kanile'a K1-S Premium Soprano that he had. Glad you are as happy with yours as I am with mine.

Awesome, Lenny. I was wondering who that went to.

I have an MGT like this one (satin finish) and it is a terrific ukulele. Someone's going to get a good deal on this one!
