Pono MB - Mahogany Baritone (Special! Free Oahu Hard Case)

Product Review (submitted on December 24, 2012):
Mine was purchased as a Micro-Blemished model for a substantial savings. The two cosmetic blemishes were very minor and did not have any functional effect & the rest of the fit and finish are very good. It has open geared tuners & there can be a bit of play in them. After the strings settled in, I found that the "B" string at the 3rd fret did not ring well, so I contacted Andrew. He responded very quickly & gave me suggestions about truss rod adjustment & said that I may need to ship it back so they could work on it. Andrew also extended my return period and sent me a new set of Ko'olau strings. I am not sure what did the trick, minor truss rod tweaks or the strings (like another reviewer, I am now using Southcoast Linear strings, tuned DGBE), but it is sounding good now โ€ฆ thanks for your persistence Andrew!
