Pono MGC Solid Mango Concert Ukulele. These beautiful instruments are made by the Hawaiian based Ko olau company, one of the most highly regarded Ukulele manufacturers in the world, and for good reason.
Made on the island of Java, Indonesia, the Pono brand are absolutely beautiful, top quality instruments with superb intonation and made in a stunning range of all solid tone-woods. Their range of ukuleles create a fascinating and completely satisfying array of tonalities.
The Pono MGC Solid Mango Concert Ukulele has a Ebony faceplate, fingerboard and bridge, Rope marquetry rosette, pearl logo and position dots with bone nut and saddle and comes in a satin finish. The attractively figured Mango wood has very similar tonal properties to Hawaiian Koa with a lighter, more relaxed sound. This is the satin finish model, but also available and in our opinion worth the upgrade, is the premium gloss version which accentuates its clarity of tone.
Overall, a high quality of instrument with a distinguished tone. Highly recommended!
A beautiful uke, perfectly set up and packaged, and it sounds gorgeous. Another big "thank you" to the guys at Duke of Uke for their terrific service !
