View Full Version : new used uke day!

Went to wilmington's NC ukulele academy to see if I could find concert uke to bum around with. I have a Koaloha sceptre but will not take it bumming in the car. I was not let down. I got this used PONO at a great price with a HS case! Thought I'd put in a few pics to let you all see. Has great sustain and ample volume. The only "flaw" was the back had a small bubble at the seam. I do not know about the rest of you, but if it is solid and sounds good I am not picky on looks. Took it along today in the car and loved it! :)

What Trinimon said! "Meh, who looks at the seam anyways?!" Great score btw! May you always have good good times with it!

Thanks! I really love the sound. I lined up about every concert uke he had there under $300 and just kept eliminating them. Once I heard the Pono the task got real fast! It was by far the best sound for the money.
