hey gang, beautiful uke for sale today. One of the Pono MSD 'blemished' stock recently offered for sale, though I honestly have no idea what the blemish is supposed to be.

Very pretty instrument, high gloss finish, lovely tone and nice low action. Great playability. Selling to fund another purchase. I changed out the stock nylon strings for a set of worth clears and it sounds sweet as. I also bought a hardshell case which is included with the instrument. It is in same condition received...AWESOME!

ebony headstock overlay
17 frets, 12 to the body

The Bridge doesn't seem symetrical compared to the Saddle placement and the strings seem to be a little off center to the fret board edges.

Thanks for your interest. No the bridge is perfectly square with the saddle and the strings are dead centre. It is a lovely uke with correct intonation, very lightweight and a sweet, punchy tone. The mahogany is also much blonder in apperance than most, more honey coloured, and very pretty, with an even blonder stripe running down the body in line with the soundhole. I have checked the uke over from head to toe many times and still am at a loss as to the blemish. Thankyou for your comment anyway.
