    These are excellent Ponos. Great sound. The cedar warms the tone a bit and gives it plenty of projection. Lovely sustain. Low-G or high, strummed or picked these are great all-around tenors.

    You're getting a Pono PC for D price. With a slothead to boot.

    What year was this made?

    I think it was purchased in 2015 from the Ukesite.

    Kept in a smoke and pet-free environment? Also, will you ship to the States?

    I have one of these and have to say it is such a quality ukulele. It compares very well with many aspects of a custom Ukulele.

    This is a superb price and strongly recommend this as a buy.
    How bad is your UAS?

    Hi OP, I'm very interested. Mind giving a bit more info about "few very small imperfections in the top"? Assuming no cracks, dents. TIA!

    I had that model! The tone was nicer than my very high end ukes.

    This ukulele is in very nice condition. In order to see the marks you have to tilt the uke at just the right angle, their small. Cedar is a very soft wood and very easy to mark. Nothing major.
