The Pono ULN series are a Nylon strung Terz-Guitar inspired short scale Guitar. Tuned to G in the standard Guitar/Guitalele way (G,C,F,Bb,D,G) I had no issues using the instrument in standard Guitar tuning with some Extra hard tension classical Guitar strings whatsoever and equally, a capo on the second fret will give you the A to A Guitalele tuning. It is evident the instrument performs at its best in G though, perfect string tension and just the most subtle hybrid Classical Guitar/Ukulele sound perhaps more like a harp or a piano.
This model is the guitar version of the Pono MTD-CR - Solid Cedar top, Solid Mahogany back and sides and it is just the accurate Classical sounding guitar at short scale we've ever heard!
If you play Guitar and want the ultimate travel guitar then this ticks every box. Likewise, if you play the Ukulele/Guitalele and 6 strings is your next venture then once again Pono have got you covered. Excellent work Pono and thank you for raising the bar once again.
This one has some small marks to the top (see pics) so is being sold as B stock at a massively reduced price!
