This is a new model from Pono and it is one of the best sounding tenors on the uke market. It's body is all solid Acacia wood. It has an abalone rosette like all pro classic models, but with the 5 series, abalone  shell is inlayed along side rosewood top binding.

Hawaiian Koa is an Acacia wood, but this is not Hawaiian Koa. It has the same properties and a similiar look , but this wood is closer to the Australian Blackwood Acacia. It has a very "warm" tone,  projects wonderfully, and is a very musical tonewood. This one has koa wood binding and a radius fretboard. Aaron samples the ebony bound non radius. Check this tone-

Pono uses only solid woods. They use only bone for the nut and saddle and always use wood bindings, no plastics. Koolau has refined their Pono line for nearly 10 years and this model is proof that hard work and determination pay off.  Pono has a climate controled factory on the island of Java and Koolau regularly visits to work with them. They aim for perfection on every level and it shows!

This model has such a beautiful voice and look. It plays extremely well and comes with a titanium light weight adjustable truss rod for adjusting the foreward curvature of the neck.  It can be adjusted from right inside the soundhole with an allen wrench provided. This is something you will probably not need to adjust. But over time and with humidity changes, it is a very useful option to have, and a very easy thing to adjust with little room for error. Speaking of humidity, we always give a humidifier with solid wood instrument!  Don't pass this model up only six came in and they sound Awesome!!!

 This classy tenor comes in a wooden shaped, custom made hard shell case and also qualifies for free shipping anywhere! 

This ukulele also sounds great with a low G set up, so if you would like, we will be glad to set it up that way for you at no extra charge. Low G is what you see in the video, so if you want that sound, type low G in the area below.
