Beautiful NEW Baritone Model!

This is a new and unique and wonderful baritone from Pono. It has a 21.4" scale and is shaped and braced like a mini guitar. It has a smaller body and shorter scale than a tenor guitar, but it's larger than a baritone. Pono describes the inspiration for their UL series guitars-

"In the 1800's guitar makers migrated from Europe to the eastern United States.  Some of their first designs were what we today refer to as 'parlor' guitars.  Big guitars were not yet on the market.  The most common sizes had an 11" to 13" wide body width.  

Small size guitars produce a sparkling tone, a chime, and somewhat of a natural reverberating sustain.  In the early to mid 1900s a few guitar manufacturers produced similar size "parlor" guitars.  The Li'i is the body width of what was known as a Style 2, and the 'Uku Li'i a Style 5."

This instrument is a throw back to those first guitars except they have 4 strings. It has the baritone tuning and sound, but with more punch and sustaining overtones. Mika gives us a sound sample of this new model.

This new model features a gorgeous western red cedar top, and solid mahogany for the sides and back. It has a comfy radius fretboard with smooth playability,  a classy slotted headstock, and a deluxe custom fit arched top hard wood case.

Pono only uses solid woods, bone nut and saddle, and wood bindings. No plastics. They have a climate-controlled factory on the island of Java, and they diligently aim for perfection on every level. It shows!

Extra Options

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco included humidifier for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+). This is suggested if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.), or areas with winter seasons, especially if you heat the air in your home. For more info see our Ukulele Care page

Put a note in the Special Instructions, if you have any preferences that our setup or shipping department should be aware of.
