    Default FS: Pono Tenor Ukulele PTRC-CE

    Pono PTRC-CE tenor uke with cutaway and pickup. Cedar top, rosewood back and sides, ebony fretboard and bridge, (fisherman?) under-saddle pickup. Koa binding on body, rope purfling, abalone rosette, Grover enclosed tuners, with truss road for neck adjustment. I think it was made around 2008. Strung with low G. Very clean, plays and sounds great. With Ko’olau hardshell case. I bought a KoAloha Opio tenor a while ago and that's what I tend to pick up when I play. $450 plus shipping & insurance (from NH).

    Cedar Top and Rosewood back and sides is an excellent combination. Produces some of the best-sounding Ponos made.

    I really enjoy mine.

    You can learn by reading, but you don’t begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    I don't know enough about how to judge 'action' to answer. It plays fine. No buzzing or anything.

    I think he's asking what is the measurement in mm at the 12th fret to the bottom of the string(s).

    Oh, thanks for clarifying. It looks like just under 4mm, from the top of the fret marker to the underside of the G string.

    They're also asking is it easy to play, etc. A picture of the measurement would be helpful for those interested in action height.

    Well, it's a photographic challenge, but here's my best shot.
