What can you tell me about a Pono PS-O soprano? I bought one on ebay, but I can't find anything about it, except that someone sold one here a while back.

I was the only bidder, at $150, because the back is scratched, and someone tried to repair it. From the front, it looks fine, and it doesn't even look that bad from the back. Naturally, it sounds beautiful.

Also - Is there a way to make getting email about responses to my posts the default? I generally forget to go through those steps.

I have a Pono PS-O that was received as a gift. It sounds magical, but is very hard (for me) to play due to it being a soprano and my fingers being sized for a tenor. I've searched for information, but haven't found much. What have you been able to find? I would be very interested to learn more.

Earlier today, I emailed Pono, and got this response: "PS-O is an early model designation we used for our soprano Mahogany models. all solid mahogany for body and neck."

Thanks for that. I wonder how early.

I put Gotoh tuners on mine, and I'll probably fill in the remaining holes (unless I already did that and just forgot :D)
