Beautiful NEW All Solid Cedar/Mahogany Steel String Baritone - PICS show exact instrument available here

This is a new and unique instrument from Pono Guitar & Ukulele Company. It has a 21.4" scale and is shaped and braced like a mini guitar. It's a smaller body and shorter scale than a tenor guitar, but 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 1900's 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 throwback to those first steel-string guitars, but with 4 strings, like a smaller tenor guitar, or a larger steel string baritone if you are more familiar with the ukulele. Take a listen as Corey gives us a raw sound sample. 

This new model features the warm tones and looks of the western red cedar soundboard. It's complimented with beautiful mahogany wood on the sides and back. The body and faceplate are finished in a perfect gloss lacquer and the neck is a smooth satin.

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 diligently aim for perfection on every level. It shows and this is a fantastic model! Includes final setup and arched top hardshell case.

Extra Options

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Humistat 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 also areas with winter seasons, especially if you heat the air in your home.
