PONO PTMS2-E or PTMC-E. Anyone own one of these? I played one today and loved it. S stands for spruce and C stands for cedar.

Nah, I havent seen one of these nor heard them play. Maybe if you have some pictures and videos of the sound that you would like to share that would be awesome. :D

I get one PTC. I love da ukulele. I wen get um wen had da factory sales last summah. Da solid wood makes da ting sound real good. Wen you throw ontop some Ko`olau golds it's a real warm sounding ukulele.

If you get any questions, let me know.

I have a Pono cedar top tenor (PTC) and it is great. Bright tone, great neck, and loud, loud, loud!

It should be great. Keep in mind, spruce top ukes are a bit mellower sounding --more like a classical guitar.

Mohagany is going to be a rich guitar-like sound most likely. I have a Pono Mohagany and I love it. Strung with Aquilas right now..

My wife owns and plays an all-Koa Pono, but without cutaway. It sounds fine, giving the traditional Koa sound.

I'll be curious to read your review if you purchase this one.
