Pono MGTD-SH - Mango Tenor Deluxe Slothead

Quarter Sawn Solid Mango Wood -Gloss Finish

The is a brand new solid Mango tenor from Pono. Pono is a line from the Ko'olau company that makes high end custom ukes here on the island. The Pono is a more affordable version with the same specs and build as the Ko'olau. They really stand out against other choices in their price range. The Mango wood gives sweet tone just like the fruit it produces. The tone has warmth and clarity similar to the best characteristics found in both mahogany and koa.

Along with great sounds, this new mango line features beautiful, exotic looks and variations in the wood grain that will bring you joy to just hold and admire. It also has the very high quality Grover Sta-tite slothead 18:1 gear ratio tuners. Very smooth and excellent for fine tuning. Only a few have arrived so don't miss this opportunity to be among the first to experience this wonderful new model.

A key feature in all of the Pono tenors and baritones is the dual-action adjustable truss rod. This stabilizes and adjusts the lengthwise forward curvature (also called relief), of the neck. It can be adjusted from right inside the sound hole with an allen wrench provided. Over time and with humidity changes, this is a very useful option to have, and a very easy thing to adjust with little room for error.

Koolau now only include their hard case with the Pro-Classic Pono series and this model doesn't normally include that but right now we are giving the wooden hard case for free!

Options

When you buy this ukulele you can get a UkeCrazy gig bag, case, or an Oahu case at an additional discount.  (Not required but suggested) The UkeCrazy gig bag and canvas covered hard case, as well as the Oahu hard case can be seen in our cases category under the accessories tab at the top of this page. Other cases can also be chosen there. 

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco HE-360, included humidifier, for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area.(parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc..) or also areas with winter seasons, especially if you are heating the air in your house. For more info refer to the ukulele care link at the bottom of this page. If you think you need to humidify the instrument, then you also need a hard case for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed. 

Another option is to switch from high G tuning (like in the video) to low G tuning. This is a blog article discussing it if you are not sure whether you want High or Low G?

Put a note in the special instructions if you need to or would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything.
