Hi everyone, I am in the market for a Pono tenor guitar (not ukulele). They just recently went into production and have been so popular that they sold out quickly. I'm patiently waiting for the factory to create some more, but it will be a few months yet. Does anyone have one ready to sell now? Thanks for your time. :)

I talked with him via email this week. They do have lots of guitars, but from what he said, the tenors (4-string) are out of stock until they make more in July. Thanks for your reply, though! :)

Hi David,

I had one and traded it to Jake Wildwood for a dobro and he posted a great review with sound sample. It was tuned to "Chicago" tuning - DGBE.

I am, in theory, on the waiting list at HMS for one of those Pono tenor guitars. I have a Blueridge tenor guitar and I love it, but it's got steel strings, while the Pono has nylon strings.
