In the summer of last year we showed you this new model that would be coming from Pono. It is a solid chambered body tenor and we compared it with other similiar options on the market at this article- Pono Solid Body-Review & Compare. That one was an Acacia model with a Misi active pickup system. Then a few weeks back we showed you a Cedar top model with a passive Pono pickup here- New From Pono- TG & TE –. So now we will give you a look at a few other options that will be showing at the 2014 NAMM. This first one is quite the seductress, a curly mango tenor with a gloss finish and Misi pickup.
Next is a look at the Piano Black Gloss finish which comes with a spruce top and chambered mahogany body. A sharp look and the spruce top really adds an acoustic quality we love. The gallery next to it shows the first of the new baritone series for these chambered electrics. We put a passive pickup in this one and as Corey notes in the video, it has a natural warmth that makes baritone so nice. It also shows the satin finish option that will be available in the all acacia and cedar top as well. Any of them will have the two pickup option and all of them will come with a perfect fitting hardshell case. So that’s a sneak peek of what is soon to come. I am keeping the details brief, but feel free to ask questions below.
