NEW Acacia Tenor with venetian cutaway from Pono! The AT has been a hit for at least 8 years now, but this new for 2018 version that just arrived looks and sounds better than ever! It now has an ebony bridge and fingerboard, as well as the logo against the Acacia faceplate. The sound is warm and full with wonderful projection. This particular new model has the smooth clean satin finish and a cutaway body style that allows easy access to the highest frets. Plus right now we are including the deluxe Oahu hardshell case for free!

Some slight adjustments lean toward a lighter weight instrument with a slightly slimmer neck and slightly deeper tone. They sound "open" right off the bat, and feel great to play. After even finer tuning by our setup team this package is a hard value to beat. If you want a great tenor for a reasonable price...this one gets our highest recommendations.

Acacia is part of the same family of trees as Hawaiian Koa, and 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 satin finish is very clean and the woods selected for this model are beautiful and instrument grade, as well as cut and dried properly.

A key feature in all of the Pono tenors and baritones is the dual-action adjustable truss rod, which stabilizes and adjusts the lengthwise forward curvature (also called relief) of the neck. It can be easily adjusted from right inside the soundhole with an included allen wrench. Over time, and with humidity changes, this is a very useful option to have, and a very simple thing to adjust with little room for error.

We are donating $40 to The Ukulele Kids Club for every Pono ukulele we sell through year end! That $40 puts an ukulele and the healing power of music into the hands of a child battling through a serious medical condition. This is being done with participating pediatric hospitals and board-certified music therapy programs and we wanted to show our support with you. Details and results as they come will go on at our resource center, The Ukulele Review. Aloha!

Here's a video we shot earlier this year at the Pono factory.

Setup Options

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.

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 are heating 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.
