Rono F-style 8-string by Ron Oates. $1,500.
Here's a Rono of another kind: a solidbody electric "lump scroll" F-style instrument by Ron Oates of Boulder, Colorado. Korina body with a birdseye maple top, laminated maple neck, 22-fret ebony fretboard with graduated dot inlays and bar inlay at the 12th fret. It is 1.125" wide at the nut and 1.5" wide at the 12th fret. Neck depth is 0.875" at the 1st fret and 1.0625" at the 12th fret. Ebony headplate.

     The choice of String Cheese Incident's Michael Kang and other jam-band players, Rono instruments are known for jazzy tone and easy playability. They're also notoriously hard to get, unless you shop at! See more photos, or for more information. $1,500 plus shipping. 48-hour approval period.
