NEW Pono MTDC Solid Spruce Top Mahogany Tenor with Cutaway!

The spruce top mahogany Pono tenor has been a popular choice in our stores and now we just got a few of this new model with a cutaway body.

The sound is balanced in a way many players prefer. Crisp response with a full body. Not brash or boomy. Just a sweet balance with good intonation and ample sustain. These are the qualities that allow you to grow musically.

With the added feature of a Venetian cutaway for easier access to the highest frets. It also has the radius fretboard you normally only get from the Pono Pro Classic. We should get more of these in the future but for the time being, we have very limited stock. Kalei gives it a sound sample.

A key feature in all of the Pono tenor and baritone models is the dual-action adjustable truss rod. This is used to stabilize and adjust the lengthwise forward curvature (also called relief), of the neck. It can be adjusted from right inside the soundhole with an allen wrench provided. This is something you will probably not need to adjust. But over time and with humidity changes, it is a very useful option to have, and a very easy thing to adjust with little room for error.

This spruce mahogany deluxe tenor cutaway is simple but beautiful. It's not flashy but has plenty of natural eye candy. Even more important, it has an excellent feel and sound making it an all-around killer value for the serious uke shopper looking to keep it in the mid-price range.

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) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or if you regularly heat the air in your home. 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 hardcase 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. Not sure which tuning you want? Check out this blog article High or Low G?.
