Pono Beauty || Pono Pro Classic Rosewood/Spruce Sunburst Baritone Ukulele NUI (BN-30D SB)

Māori "nui"

(noun) size, quantity, vastness, greatness, importance, amount, abundance, plenty, rank.

This Pono baritone has many of the features that I have dreamed about for a baritone ukulele. Being the Pro-Classic model it also comes with the Pro-Classic price. I like to think that an instrument is a lifelong investment worth every penny. But for the average hobbyist the price point ($1,100) is a bit challenging. That being said I think that Pono is on the leading edge of models and designs for the baritone ukulele.

I have a beautiful Pono AB, Acacia Baritone, and it has become my regular player at home.

If you love the beauty of old instruments and vintage musical memorabilia be sure to check out Jake's site. There's surely something there that you never knew existed. Thanks for the 1952 Regal update from two friends on this one -- both Gary Meade creator of Ukulelia, and Jon Thysell chord charts, techy and baritone ukulele player.
