The latest cedar top rosewood slothead tenor from Pono has arrived and they look and sound better than ever! Features include gorgeous Indian Rosewood with a Western Red Cedar top. It's accented with Macassar ebony top and back binding as well as the bridge, fingerboard, and faceplate. The attention to detail is fantastic and we think you're gonna love the tone and feel.

This is quality in every way. The look, sound, and with the radius fretboard and our custom setup you will love playing this wonderful new ukulele.  Mika gives us a sample with the stock Ko'olau Alohi nylon high g set. After that Corey samples it with the Ko'olau Aho fluorocarbon set with the smoothwound low G. This way you can hear it with both high and low G and nylon or fluorocarbon. 

Pictures show the exact ukulele available here. Video shows the same model. 

The RTSH is crisp, loud, and deep in sound. Cedar has a "broken in" quality, or a sweetness in sound that it takes other woods many years to attain. Along with that is the rich tonality given from rosewood. The custom styled slotted headstock and perfect lacquer gloss finish show an elegant beauty to go with the high-quality sound.

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.

This classy uke comes in a wooden shaped, custom made hardshell case and also qualifies for free shipping!

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 Humistat 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.
