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 inside the soundhole the provided allen wrench. Over time, and with humidity changes, this is a very useful option to have. It's also a very easy to adjust.
