Pono ukuleles just continue to get better with every year that passes. They really are making ukuleles up there with some of the best custom shop makers. The Pono ATD-CR has a cedar top which gives a warmer mellow edge to the sound. This one has superb note separation and excellent sustain. It is immaculately made and feels as classy as it looks. This one has a radius fretboard – a slight curve to match the natural curve of your fingers – which makes playing barre chords a breeze.
