    Default Cutaway vs Non Cutaway

    Howzit guys,

    I am going to buy a Pono Tenor and I wondering if there is a difference whether the ukulele has a cutaway vs a non cutaway?

    Hey Mate

    The reason why the Makers build ukuleles with cutaway is because it allows the player to have easier access to the higher frets such as 14th, 15th 16th etc..
    Besides that, nothing else according to sound.

    Good luck with your decision

    well, it reduces the body size a little bit... some claim that they can hear a difference. I can't.

    I just like the looks of a non cutaway better, to bad i got one with a cutaway. But it is pretty smart having easier access.

    So ask yourself if your ever gonna use that easier access to 16,17,18 and 19.

    IMO, it's more aesthetics than anything else.

    Observe with the eyes; listen with the ears; shut the mouth.

    Ever heard of the ukulossary? lol.
    If your really the kind of person who uses all of those frets, then a cutaway would suit you. If not stick with a non cutaway

    It's my birthday and I'm even older than old now I guess. Total brain freeze. I have now put 2 and 2 together. I won't ask about this again -- sorry. I didn't know that's what they were called.
