I have a mint Pono Mango Tenor Pro Classic that I got this past summer from HMS. This is a new model of theirs and it sounds great. The only thing that keeps me from playing it a lot is I have a previously broken left wrist that hurts when fretting this uke. If you know you love Ponos then you should really consider this sweet sounding Mango. Mango is a very distinct sound that I really dig. I also have a Pono pineapple mango concert that is easier on my left hand.

The exact ukulele I'm offering is the one here in both the photos and video:

Check out the sound for yourself. Kalei seemed to like it.

Currently set up with Ko'olau Mahana strings with Aquila Red series low G, Mahana high g string in case.

$475 firm shipped free CONUS and I cover PayPal. Would make a great holiday fruitcake gift! Thanks for looking.

For more pics please see Andrew's expert shots in the link above. Includes non original O'ahu hardshell case because I got it with a gig bag which I want to keep.

You win 3 Internets! That made me chuckle.

I have the series 5 version of this uke and love, love, love it... Mine is strung high G with all Thomastik Infeld nylon strings and it sounds so balanced and sweet. What a treat. Mango is a lovely tone wood. If I didn't already own mine, I'd buy yours in a second. It's a great price for the quality of this uke. Good luck with the sale!

Curious. Does this have a radius fretboard.

It is a Pono Pro Classic, but didn't see it on HMS's site.

I thought all Pono Pro Classic Models had radius fretboards. But I recently got a ATC-(C) PC and it does not have the radius fretboard. Similar to HMS site link for Mango model, it does not mention radius fretboard in description:

I can't speak to this uke, but I have a plain-Jane MGT and I have a hard time putting it down. I expect this one would sound as good as it looks, and the price quoted above is practically a steal.

Yes, definitely has radius fretboard.

The model is on their site, just for some reason not in the tenor section of Pono. But if you select the Pono brand without any filter and just read through I think 5 pages of all their models it's there in the middle.

Yes, Ponos offer such a great value and the quality is truly amazing! And really some of the best tone out there. I love Mango too and would never sell this if i didn't have issues with my hand. I will never sell my deluxe mango pineapple concert!

Wow! I can't believe that his has yet to sell. I was looking for this exact model a few months back but it was not available at HMS. Eventually I purchased the MGTD. Such fine beautiful tone. I don't regret my purchase, but this is a better deal. My (long) review of the Pono Mango Tenor can be read in the Review section of this forum. I suspect that the build and tone impressions would also apply to this PC. Good luck with the sale.

If I was looking to sell THIS PONO ... I would ask Andrew to fix his description. For many people, a radius does not matter. But for many of us it does. I would post another link to show it does.

I'm interested in buying your uke, sent a private message earlier, is it still for sale?

I contacted Andrew who did confirm this has a radius and has since changed the link so it shows it has one.

Good luck to the new purchaser ... superb tone on this ... Pono Pro Classic Tenors are excellent value for the money.
