    Default FS: Pono ETSH-PCC Cedar & Macassar Ebony tenor

    Selling my Pono ETSH-PCC tenor ukulele I received from Mim last year. Mim did a wonderful job setting this up and it plays beautifully. Unfortunately money is tight as my fiancÚ and I are saving up for our wedding this July so I can't afford to keep it.

    The bitterness of this winter did take a toll on this uke...it developed a crack in the back. After spending a couple weeks rehumidifying to close the crack, my local guitar tech cleated the crack so it won't get worse (see pictures).

    Solid cedar top, solid macassar ebony back & sides. Koa binding. Slotted headstock. Abalone rosette.

    Hawaiian Music Supply is selling this same model for $1119 which is similar to what I paid from Mim. You can hear a sound sample of this on their site:

    http://www.theukulelesite.com/pono-m...o-classic.html

    I know that due to the crack (even though it is cleated) I won't be able to get the full used value for it, but I am hoping to get $725...that's close to $400 off new price. I will entertain offers but am not interested in trades. I am including the hard case pictured and will offer free shipping within the continental US.

    Pic of the crack (the long white stripe to the right...the other white stripes are scratches...the flash from the camera made them much more noticeable than they are):

    There is no better person to buy a uke from on the UU than Nuprin. No one.

    I have the rosewood version of this uke and can vouch for the overall playability, they are extremely nice, basically what I have been looking for the last 5 years.

    I have this Uke model. I can tell you that the sustain is amazing and it is a great pleasure to play every single time. And I am just a noobie doobie do. Just love this Uke. Pono is a great product.
    How bad is your UAS?
