Pono MCD Deluxe Solid Mahogany Concert Ukulele Gloss Finish
The Pono MCD deluxe concert ukulele is a beautiful, mellow sounding instrument with all of the warmth you expect from solid mahogany. This is the gloss finish model, which is arguably a much brighter sounding uke than the satin finish basic model, the MC; for a zinger but rounded fingerpicking sound then this model (the MCD) would be great.
Faultlessly well made, using top of the range materials, any Pono would win rave reviews. This model, one of our best sellers for over 6 years, has consistently made the owners very happy, a happiness which only increases once the wood starts to open up. After a year or so, you notice more depth to the tone, and greater projection - something that only happens with solid wood instruments.
The Pono MCD concert ukulele is an instrument for life at a non life threatening price!

About the Pono line: The Pono line is made by Ko’olau one of the oldest and most traditional Hawaiian ukulele manufacturers. Ko’olau’s goal throughout the years has been to provide the highest quality stringed instruments available with a high standard of craftsmanship. And besides methods of construction to optimize tone and volume, they stress the importance of cosmetic beauty.
It is of interest to note that only the finest grades of quartersawn hardwoods, such as mahogany, rosewood, and ebony are selected for Pono instruments. However, only 20% pass the stringent requirements of density, grain patterns, flexibility, and cosmetic aesthetics. This is virtually unknown, especially in the Asian import market. All of the Pono instruments are made of solid woods.
