Gloss Mahogany Tenor Engelmann SpruceTop w/Radius Fretboard

This Pono model, like the Pro Classic tenors, has a radius fingerboard. It's hardly noticeable, but for many it adds to the comfort and playability of the instrument. On top of feeling great, this new tenor looks beautiful! A perfect gloss finish shows off the stunning quarter sawn Honduran mahogany. Rosewood binding and wood rope purfling frame off one of the favorite tonewoods of many acoustic enthusiasts: Engelmann spruce! The tonal character is sweet and clear on this wonderful ukulele. It's a joy to play and hear. 

The new MTD-SP is basically a spruce top version of the MTD-2. It sounds great with low or high G tuning but this sound sample is in low G. Get yours set up with the Southcoast Low HML-RW set Aaron is playing for only $10 more in the options here.

This is a completely dry, unprocessed sound sample review.

The precision workmanship and attention to detail delivered by Pono's top builders is among the best in the world. Experience the new Pono!

Another option is to switch from high G tuning to low G tuning (like in the video) . not sure which you want? Check out this blog article: High or Low G?

Pretty and quiet uke
My wife favorite ukulele....because its so quiet. Quieter than any other ukulele i have. It almost seems like it was designed to be played in a dorm or a tiny apartment. Very good build quality, hoping something changes with time and new strings.

This is the 1!
I had a MT on order when this beauty showed up in the inventory. One listen to Aaron's demo and I knew that this was my ukulele. Called Andrew and asked if it was possible to change my order as I had anew love. He was very helpful and got me set up with the MTD-SP.
We are forming a ukulele group in our neighborhood and when I showed her to the gang, there many comments on its fantastic build and sound. Now I have to really work on being worthy of such a fabulous instrument. Thanks to everyone at HMS for their help.
