Oh dear. Just when I resolved “not another guitar (at least this year”....
Pics? Finish?

No picture of the new Pono OO, yet ;) (mine is the older generation with narrower waist),

but the "D" in the model designation usually refers to "deluxe" i.e. gloss poly finish.

Pono OO update!
Somehow got in touch with John about the OO coming in May :) He explained a little more about the design and specs of the instrument but actually most information are available in the first two posts of this thread. Worth highlighting would be the fact that John has reverted to some original designs of OO in this incarnation, with short scale (24 3/4"), 12-frets, slotted headstock, and 1 13/16" nut width.

I remember some of these features once appeared in one of John's previous "vintage" model OO40V, and an NGD thread could still be found in this Forum.

My Pono OO20 SB - spruce-mahogany sunburst, remains one of my favourite Pono guitars. Ergonomic and easy to hold, with a crisp and articulate, projectile sound.

Also great to see rosewood is again available. My first Pono guitar - a spruse-rosewood body/side instrument (GA30DC) - is, all things considered, my favourite guitar, ever!:D
