Nice - and congratulations. I also have a Pono mango. I swapped my strings for high-G Aquilas and replaced the saddle with a Tusq piece to brighten it up.

Thankyou, I am also going to change the strings for Aquila high G. I don't really like the low G sound.
When i have done that, a video might follow... if im brave enough!

Congratulations. Wow, what a lovely instrument. He sure sent you a beauty. It truly must be Ukulele Wednesday. I just posted congrats on Melissa82's thread. When I got home today a Mainland Mahogany Pineapple was waiting on the porch. I'll post a thread with pics and video later. Right now, I think I'll take her out to the coffee shop and play some. NEED CAFFEINE!
Regards,
Ray

I bought my PMT-E two days ago... she is amazing, and I was going to replace the strings, but the golds have grown on me. I am better man for just playing this ukulele, I've read on other messages that some folks don't like the mango, but me I love the soft mellow sound, oh and she has looks to die for.

Might try those next time, i've heard good things. Just changed to aquila's i like them more than the golds. I found the pin bridge a bit fiddly though lol

very very nice. I like the way some of the grain kinda frames the soundhole.
