nevermind then. Check out www.meleukulele.com I prefer Mele over the Honus and Ponos. Honus are pretty sweet too though. Send UkeRepublic an email if you are definately wanting a Pono or Honu. Or MGM. Mele you have to go through them and call them. sometimes you can get a better price over the phone.

i would get the new pono tenor with the slot head. looks like a great uke. you could probably get a koaloha tenor factory second for about 700 but no pickup for that price too

I love my Kala archtop tenor. It's relatively inexpensive and has a really nice feel. I also have a Kanilea k-1 which is great, but the archtop is very useful because it has a built in pickup.

Best bang for the buck in a great sounding nice quality cutaway tenor with pickup:
