Description

Details

Pono ABD - Acacia Baritone Deluxe!

Pono is making ultra high quality ukes for this mid price range. This is a great example. Beautiful solid acacia wood voiced just right. We guarantee you will love the feel, sound, and look of this instrument! Pictures show the one available here. 

A key feature in all of the Pono tenor and baritone models is the dual-action adjustable truss rod. This is used to stabilize and adjust the lengthwise forward curvature (also called relief), 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.

Acacia is a family of trees that Hawaiian koa belongs to. This is not Hawaiian koa but comes from a very similar species found throughout Asia. This instrument was built on one of the Indonesian Islands with hands on guidance and quality control from the Ko'olau Ukulele Company. These are constructed by the finest instrument makers and to Ko'olau specs and design. This gloss finish and woods used on this model are only the finest. And, we are happy to hear the impressive tonal character! This is a great value on a pro-level baritone!

Photos and video show stock typical.

The baritone is a fun and relaxing instrument that any guitar or ukulele player should feel right at home with.

Options

When you buy this ukulele you can get a UkeCrazy gig bag or canvas covered hard case at an additional discount. (Not required but suggested.) The UkeCrazy gig bag and canvas covered hard case can be seen in our cases category under the Accessories tab at the top of this page. Other cases can also be chosen there. 

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco HE-360 included humidifier for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18) at a discount. This is required if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or also areas with winter seasons, especially if you heat the air in your house. For more info refer to the Ukulele Care link at the bottom of this page. If you think you need to humidify the instrument, then you also need a hard case for a humidifier to properly work, and you need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed. 

Put a note in the Special Instructions if you need to or would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything.

Outstanding
As so many above, this instrument is a fine piece of Ukulele work. I had a local Luthier go over it for action change but little was done. I did put Red Aquila strings on and I really enjoy playing over my Kala. WONDERFUL

Sounds like Chocolate
This instrument is hands down, the best instrument I've ever played. It's got a beautiful rich deep tone - I use the description "chocolate" . Amazing! The action is perfect, the intonation is dead on, even with a capo. Love this uke so much!!!

Something to be proud of
i've been primarily a guitar player for many years, then i discovered the ukulele. I've owned 2 tenors and a concert uke thus far, and love them...However, when it 's decision time to get me a BARITONE uke, i discovered the Ukulele Site and it helped me a great deal about the different brands available out there. I agonized for days, trying to decide which one is the right one for me. Then I saw Cory playing this Pono ABD, and it struck me. Not so cheap, but not so expensive either, and it looks great. So it came with a tight fitting Oahu case and Pono pick up. I didn't put it down for 3 hrs! that's how much fun I've had with it, just on the first day! So i carry it around and as I open the case in front of other people, they all say -WOW! and theyre equally impressed by the sound it creates. Thank you Ukulele Site for the nice set-up. I am a proud owner of this baby and no regrets.....!

The First to arrive to the Koolau Pono factory in Wahiawa,Hawaii
I guess really who cares but me about this that I arrived to the factory and asked for the new Preta Acacia Baritone ABD and still was in bulk shipment being segregated for shipment. The grey Acacia handed to me by a Very distinguised old man was the ABD Baritone planned to ship to Maui. I got it with a pickup and a strap button for the neck. I had the feeling this ukulele was going to be in my family to be passed down to sons and or daughters. The Pono Baritone is an excellent instrument. If you decide to get one do yourself a favor and get all the bells and whistles for it. You will forget about the price as the years go by playing such a fine Pono Ukulele. Aloha Mike A.

Love it, love it!
I've always loved classical guitar but never could manage the neck and strings. This baritone ukulele is the answer! The sound is amazing, the action is perfect (thanks to the free, professional set up!) and I've been playing this uke every day since it arrived the day after Thanksgiving. Thanks to The Ukulele Site for having videos of their instruments. To me, sound is first, then looks then price (within reason). The Pono ABD met all three - I love it!

Fansatic Baritone
I was looking into getting a custom baritone made when I got to play a Pono while in Seattle. The Pono I played was a concert but it got me thinking that maybe a Pono baritone might be the way to go.I decided to give it a try and I was completely blown away by the Pono I received. It was so pretty and the sound was fantastic. All in all I've bought 4 ukes from the ukelelesite. Each one came with spot on setup !!! It takes a few extra days for the shipment to North Dakota but well worth the wait.

My 1st Uke!
Tried playing a Banjola, a banjo & guitar and have found this Uke to be the most satisfying instrument of the lot. What a wonderful full sound, be it mellow tones or something with a little bit of punch to the music, this Uke does it all. What a wonderful instrument. The wood is gorgeous and after Joel set this up for me, the strings are low and gentle on my fingers, making this a treat to play. I am pleasantly surprised at the quality! This is not my conception of the the Ukulele, which was born out of the days of Tiny Tim & "Tip Toe Through The Tulips"! This is truly an "instrument" meant to be enjoyed. Do yourself a favor & savor your own Uke, you won't regret it!
