    Agree, does not look spalted, but a pretty grain. Some of the spalted mango out there is rather ugly, imo.

    I agree you could try some different strings on the Pono, both of Jim's suggestions are good. Low G, of course, you want that bassiness. I have Worth Browns on my tenor. And which wood do you have?

    A couple things come to mind. I don't have any baris, but I have Ponos and Kalas. First of all, I hate Pono strings. They use a Ko'olau string I believe. You said you swapped strings, to what ones on...

    I like low G a lot, and have it on all my tenors and concerts. I don't, however, like the Aquila Super Nylgut strings. What you may have been hearing might have been more of the sound difference...

    Why would you want to install it above the tail binding stripe? I do think visually it would look off, and would be off-putting to any future buyers. Get one in the same wood color as your tail...

    This sounds like a bit of an underrating for the Pluto. You might be able to say that the Rebel Double Cheese is a step up from the Opio, but the Pluto is beyond that. There's a lot of good...
