Hey all,

Hate to let this one go but an opportunity has arisen and I need to fund it by selling one of my favorites. This is an awesome tenor I've had for a little over a year and a half, from when Pono did koa ukes. They only did these for a few years and then switched to acacia.

Specs are: solid koa (back, sides, and top), ebony fretboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, passive Pono pickup preinstalled, with hardshell Ko'olau case included.

I'm letting this guy go for $450 shipped CONUS.

Here are some pics (the soprano is not included (haha)):

Thanks! I love this uke, it has a ton of character and a really classic Kamaka-like tone. I think Pono is the best bang for the buck instrument manufacturer these days. I'd love to keep it but I need to fund a different project at the moment :/

Here's a picture of the headstock:

Do you have a sound or video sample? And what kind of friction tuners are those?
