Product Review (submitted on July 5, 2017):
I've had this Ukulele for a couple of months now. I have UAS and own a lot of Ukuleles, some inexpensive, some quite pricey.
My Pono MGCD has become my preferred daily practice instrument. It sounds great, the intonation is perfect, and the setup was excellent. Very easy to play and very responsive. The sound is warm and loud for a concert (Worth Clear strings).
The ukulele itself is gorgeous. The finish is immaculate, and wood grain stunning. I love the look.
Very happy with the purchase and the service. I bought the Kanilea Islands Premium Tenor from HMS since then. It's my best sounding Uke by far and absolutely stunning. Still, I find myself reaching for the Pono when I want to spend a few minutes just playing around or practicing.
