This is a very classy instrument from Pono. Famous for their all sollid Acacia, Mango and Mahogany models, they are introducing more spruce topped models across the range, at the lower and higher price points. This model has a Gloss finish, so you can expect a tighter, crisper attack and brighter sound that the satin finished model, the AB-SP.
This is the kind of instrument that can turn its hand to any style of playing, because of its enormous dynamic range. Quiet fingerpicking comes through cleanly and effortlessly, whilst the headroom for big strumming is very impressive. At all times, the class leading intonation that Pono is famous for shines through; this instrument just oozes class.
Please be aware that the pictures show a typical example. If you would like to see photos of actual stock, please drop us an email.
