Beautiful NEW Slotted Headstock Acacia Pro Classic Tenor
This solid acacia tenor Pro Classic Model has an all solid Acacia wood body and a beautiful gloss finish. It is rich in tone and full in projection. This model has the upgraded slot headstock and comes with a deluxe wooden case. Now for 2018 they have a side sound port and a newly voiced bracing. Kalei gives us a "raw" sound sample from the latest batch of ATSH from Pono.
Current production of this model like you see in the pictures has wi'awa wood binding and Grover 18:1 sta-tite tuners. It also has gorgeous Macassar ebony used for the bridge fingerboard and faceplate. Like all new Pro Classics from Pono has a radius fingerboard. It's hardly noticeable, but it surely adds to the comfort of play. This slight curve allows for low action and plays like a dream.
The precision workmanship, attention to detail as well as skill level of Pono's top builders is among the best in the world. Experience the New Pono!
This tenor is displayed and protected by the cleanest gloss finish yet from Pono. This glassy smooth lacquer finish is extremely strong yet just a few thousandths of an inch thick. This is the art of uninhibited protection. Also to be noted is that Pono has kept improving and I would put the beautiful look of this finish up against ANY custom shop instrument. It's as flawlessly executed as you will find.

Pono only uses solid woods, only bone nut and saddle. wood bindings, no plastics. They have a climate controlled factory on the island of Java and diligently aim for perfection on every level. It shows! Includes hardshell case and final setup work.
