This is a gorgeous Pono cutaway tenor using beautiful macassar ebony for the sides & back. Along with the striking beauty it has an amazing sound and feel. As an added bonus, it comes with a fantastic case.
Macassar ebony is one of the premier exotic woods used in high end custom acoustics. Even higher in cost than koa wood but the sound quality is undeniably choice. How so? Clean, crisp and rich with overtones and singing sustain. Coupled with a cedar top, the tone of macassar achieves what many look seek. Cedar has a "broken in" quality, or a sweetness in sound that it takes other woods many years to attain. What I notice is that the macassar adds definition, projection, and reverberating sustain. And that's not to mention the looks. All woods were not created equal and never has that been more evident. Framing off this exquisite ebony is curly maple wood binding.
This model, like all new Pro Classics from Pono has a radius fingerboard. It's not an extreme radius, and is hardly noticeable until pointed out. But it surely adds to the comfort of play. We must warn you that if you get this instrument your others may get ignored. It's a treat in every way!!
Many things give exceptional value to the newest Pro Classics. Precision workmanship showcasing the skill of Pono's builders. The constant pursuit of excellence in tone, look and playability. The truss rod advantage. The incredible quality Pono case.
