View Full Version : My new Pono Concert Ukulele.

I just received my new Pono Mahogany Deluxe Concert Ukulele I won from that auction site.

It was a local music store demo model that was barely used at all. I won it for $292 shipped. This is the Deluxe model with Gloss finish, Passive pickup and Ko'olau case. I was saving up for the satin finish model without the passive pickup since it was a lot cheaper but, saw this one and decided to put a bid in. I was surprised when I won it because I thought it would go for at least $350.

I'm not sure I like the Ko'olau Gold strings compared to my Kala Soprano uke with the Aquila's but, I'll keep them for awhile before trying something else.

Congratulations on the new uke! It's a beauty, and that sounds like an amazing price. I have a Pono mahogany baritone (not the deluxe model, though), and I really enjoy how it sounds.

Congratulations, glad a UU'er got it. I almost snagged it out from under you, but decided to wait a while....until my playing deserved it. I don't see how you can not enjoy it.
