Beautiful NEW Limited Edition Slotted Headstock Acacia Pro Classic Tenor

This solid acacia tenor Pro Classic Model has an all solid Acacia wood body and a beautiful gloss finish. It is rich in tone and full in projection. This model has the upgraded slot headstock and comes with a deluxe wooden case. Now for 2018 they have a side sound port and a newly voiced bracing.  Kalei gives us a "raw" sound sample from the ATSH from Pono. This is the same model but in a limited edition with recon stone for the rosette and purfling.

Current production of this model like you see in the pictures has wi'awa wood binding and Grover 18:1 sta-tite tuners. It also has gorgeous Macassar ebony used for the bridge fingerboard and faceplate. Like all new Pro Classics from Pono has a radius fingerboard. It's hardly noticeable, but it surely adds to the comfort of play. This slight curve allows for low action and plays like a dream.

The precision workmanship, attention to detail as well as skill level of Pono's top builders is among the best in the world. Experience the New Pono!

This tenor is displayed and protected by the cleanest gloss finish yet from Pono. This glassy smooth lacquer finish is extremely strong yet just a few thousandths of an inch thick. This is the art of uninhibited protection, one of the keys to Pono's excellent tone. Also to be noted is that Pono has kept improving and I would put the beautiful look of this finish up against ANY custom shop instrument. It's as flawlessly executed as you will find.

Pono only uses solid woods, only bone nut and saddle. wood bindings, no plastics.  They have a climate controlled factory on the island of Java and diligently aim for perfection on every level. It shows! Includes hardshell case and final setup work.

This is a Pono factory tour video we shot in March 2017.

Most people shop with us because of the extensive quality control and final setup work we provide at no extra cost on all ukuleles we ship out. However this is time consuming work and creates a delay in shipping. We are now offering an "Expedited Setup" for those wanting to receive their instrument faster. See details on the Full Setup and Expedited Setup options along with current turnaround times for each at the link- HERE.

Comes with a Hardshell Case.

The Herco HE360 is the included humidifier. You can upgrade to the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+). This is a must if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or if you heat the air in your home. For more info see our Ukulele Care link at the bottom of the site.

If you want a different set of strings you can buy them at the strings section and just note that you want us to change them in the Special Instructions.

Another option is to switch from high G tuning (like in the video) to low G tuning. This is a blog article discussing it if you are not sure whether you want High or Low G?
