This is an Engelmann spruce top tenor with beautiful mahogany sides and back. The new model has the classy slotted headstock as well and, like all the Pro Classics, it 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. Ebony 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.

Take a listen as Corey reviews and samples this new model.

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

Most people shop with us because of the extensive quality control and final setup work we provide at no extra cost on all ukuleles we ship out. However this is time consuming work and creates a delay in shipping. We are now offering an "Expedited Setup" for those wanting to receive their instrument faster. See details on the Full Setup and Expedited Setup options along with current turnaround times for each at the link- HERE.

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 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. 

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?

Outstanding Ukulele
Outstanding quality. It was more then I was looking to spend but worth every penny and then some. I am beyond impressed with the craftsmanship.

Pono is awesome!
I have had the Pono MTSH-SP for around two weeks now and I absolutely love it. It has beautiful overtones along with excellent note separation. I opted to restring it with Nylgut strings ( low G) and it made a big difference. The fit and finish are excellent. The setup from the Ukulele Site was ideal, honestly worth the wait. The only negative I can say is I see some glue seepage on the inside of the body but that is being very nit picky and it is minimal. I struggled with spending this much as it was outside of my original price range but I am beyond happy that I did!
