Pono's tenors are well known for their awesome playability; and customisable action. Very few ukuleles have a truss rod; a rod that runs through the neck that can be tightened or loosened with a hex key to customise action to each player's preference. All the more important on an 8 string ukulele! Sadly, very few 8 strings have a solid enough construction to deal with the string tension. So if you've been struggling with finding an 8 string uke that doesn't get either a warped sound board, lifting bridges or overly bowed neck, the Pono MT-8 is perfect!
Pono's mahogany tenor is especially warm in tone - and personally one of my favourites. Sure, it isn't as 'unique' as Pono's mango or acacia timber, but tonally it is superb. That being said the ebony faceplate on the headstock and the ebony fretboard and bridge are a beautiful aesthetic touch.
