    Default Pono ATDC Solid acacia tenor - review

    Just stunning both to look at and to listen to. Pono have never let me down and this one has just been given one of the highest scores on my site ever

    Certainly looks nice - I wonder how it will sound with low G Living Water strings.

    Suspect it would be nice - it's bright so the low G will mellow it a little, but it wont go overly mellow

    Excellent review. Everything you say about that instrument is exactly the same as my experience with Ponos.

    Yes, this one really pleased me as all other Ponos I have played have been top notch. No reason that this one wouldnt be but you worry something will come along and spoil the magic.

    Thankfully it didn't!

    Nice review.... Thanks for posting. I agree totally on comments on tone, complexity and chime. My reference point is the Pono AT which is further down the line but all solid Acacia wood with Matt finish. I can only imagine how nice the ATDC is with gloss finish. I also really like the look of their cutaway. Never played one bot know I will love it. Frets on all the Pono's I have played have been Perfect.

    I have read that the non gloss models of the same woods can sound a little mellower, but I suspect it's marginal. I own both gloss and non gloss Ponos in various sizes and love them all.
