Pono Tenor Electric Acacia Satin w/Case (TE 1277)

Product Review (submitted on June 2, 2019):

I haven’t had this much musical fun in years! Oddly enough, I play ukulele but my favorite genre of music is melodic death metal, so I have long been eager to merge the two. With this little guy plugged into Line 6 and Vox amps with appropriate effects, I really feel like a rock star! The fit and finish of the uke is on par with my Hawaiian-made solid koa ukes, and the set-up is flawless. The case looks great but is sloppily made, with a crooked arch top, loose covering, and oversized hardware that took some work with pliers to get lined up. I have an Oahu case for my Koaloha uke that is much, much better, but this one is designed for this thin body, so I guess I’ll keep it. Regardless, I am very happy with this purchase, and I can recommend it to anyone looking to take their ukulele playing into new territory. Although I haven’t played competitors like Risa or Vorson electric ukes, I am not going to keep shopping. This one is my keeper.
