This is the new Pro Classic 5 Series with Cedar top and Macassar Ebony sides & back. Along with the striking beauty, it has an amazing sound and feel.

Macassar Ebony is one of the premier exotic woods used in high end custom acoustics. Even higher in cost than koa wood, but the sound quality is undeniably choice. How so?

The tone of this Macassar is perfect for what many look for. It's clean and crisp, rich with overtones and singing sustain, and coupled with a cedar top. Cedar has a "broken in" quality, or a sweetness in sound that takes other woods many years to attain. What I notice is Macassar adds definition, projection, and reverberating sustain. And that's not to mention the looks. Corey demos this new model for us.

All woods were not created equal and never has that been more evident. Framing off this is exquisite, flamed maple binding. This gives contrast with a warm earthy tone, and it enhances the overall visual appeal. The purfling and rosette are turqouise, a special limited edition for 2018. 

This model, like all new Pro Classics from Pono, has a radius fingerboard. It's not an extreme radius, and it's hardly noticeable until pointed out. But it adds to the comfort of play. We must warn you, if you get this instrument your others may get ignored. It's a treat in every way.

The truss rod advantage. The newer, higher quality Pono case. Many things give value to the newest Pro Classics. Namely, the precision workmanship and skill level of these builders. It also shows the same persistence for excellence as Ko'olau. This ET5 is exceptional! The ultimate Pono! Don't hesitate to add this beauty to your collection.

Comes with Hardshell Case. Photos and video are stock typical.
