This is a seriously amazing ukulele in both looks and sound. It features a cedar top for warmth and acacia back and sides for projection. It has incredible sustain and note clarity. It also looks the part; featuring a stunning abalone rosette and purfling, and ebony faceplate, fingerboard, and bridge. As with all Pono pro-classics the fingerboard is radiused making it really comfortable to play; barre chords are a breeze. It also comes with a deluxe Pono hardcase. Sheer class!
