    Actually I think you are right. There is also a scalloped cutaway and an armrest by the looks of it.

    Spoiler alert, mystery is solved (second image):

    D shaped soundhole, side sound port, beveled armrest and cutaway, slotted headstock with stealth tuners, Maple binding, and what they call Mo'okuauhau inlay. Not my cup of tea, I preferred the 2019 pineapple model. Good to see that they are adding the pineapple tenor to their regular lineup (first picture).

    The new Platinum is not for me either but the P-1! Absolutely!! I was really hoping they would start making 'standard' Pineapple models.

    Huh. I agree. The 2019 was much classier. The new one looks like a "super tenor" body with some trendy features thrown at it. Don't like the Mo'okuauhau inlay at all.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you donít begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    Since I can't play a super tenor I don't need to worry about wanting the 2020 platinum edition. I agree the pineapple is another story. Although it is a sort of also to those who bought the 2019 platinum at about twice the price.

    I'm not wild about all the empty space on the headstock but I will want one of these nevertheless.
