I've enjoyed this instrument but am playing a lot more mandolin and regular guitar and am most comfortable with the much closer spacing of those instruments. This instrument has the neck width and string spacings of a typical ukulele, which others may find to their liking. Anyway, it's in good condition, with normal playing wear. Here are some particulars...

FEATURES:
Rosewood back and sides with Engelmann Spruce Top. It has a 21.4" scale and is shaped and braced like a parlor guitar. It's a smaller body and shorter scale than a tenor guitar, but larger than a baritone ukulele. Pono only uses solid woods, bone nut and saddle, and wood bindings. No plastics. Open-gear Grover tuners. Abalone shell rosette and top and back curly maple binding. Rosewood Pearse arm-rest. MiSi active under-saddle pickup. Nice Pono/Ko'Olau hard case included.

This was $1200 new w/o pickup (MiSi pickup sells for $169 + install$). I am offering it for $750.

If any ukulele player wants to venture into the sound of a steel string guitar this is the way to go. I owned the same instrument, different wood combo, they are fabulous. Just like all Ponos very well made and appointed, top quality all the way
