Description

Details

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

The latest run of Pro Classics are SO beautiful. The attention to detail is truly impressive. But meticulous construction is just the start.

The materials used on the newest pro classics are top notch. The body is quarter sawn Honduran Mahogany, an expensive mahogany used for the best musical instruments. Ebony frames off the top and back of the body. The bridge and the fretboard are also ebony and the faceplate is Macassar ebony. The tuners are machined perfectly for smooth use and long term stability. The nut and saddle are bone, and the wooden case is a newer more durable design.

Take a listen to the slothead mahogany Pro Classic from Pono.

There is a slight curve to the fingerboard, nut, and saddle. This is what we are referring to as the fretboard radius. It makes chording easier and allows for low action and an extra sweet feel. This wonderful feel compliments a tone that truly sings. A full bodied sound with clarity and warmth, this is the classic mahogany tenor sound at it's best. Ko'olau is very exacting and the results are impressive! This is an instrument to love and cherish for life!

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 sound-hole 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 with little room for error.

Here's a sample of this model with a Low G setup.

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

Options

Comes with Hardshell Case.

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) or (OH-5+) 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 heat 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. 

After adding this instrument to your cart, you can still create your own package by adding a case or accessories from the website.
