Product Review (submitted on August 10, 2012):
My Pono MC "refuses" Aquilla! It buzzed on some strings and frets when I put them on, so I replaced it with the original strings it comes with--Koólau Mahana (if the info from an online ukulele site is accurate). So far, imho, it has sounded best that way, though I suspect it'll sound as good with a low g.
I find its architectural design simple yet quite elegant. I also appreciate the fact it has a thick body, which I believe helps its resonance.
