Pono is a line from Ko'olau, a maker of high end custom ukes here on the island. The Pono line is an affordable version, with the same specs and build as the Ko'olau. They really stand out against other choices in their price range.
The Mango wood gives this tenor a sweet and juicy tone just like the fruit it produces. When it is quarter sawn and dried properly, like this, mango is a very stable and choice tonewood. This deluxe model shows off the beautiful wood with a professional gloss finish. Look and listen to this unique new model from Ko'olau's popular Pono line.There are only a few left with the mango faceplate style. After these are gone, this model will have an ebony faceplate. Both are beautiful, but if you like the matching mango faceplate grab one while they last.

The tone has warmth and clarity similar to the characteristics found in mahogany and koa. Along with sounding great, this new mango line features beautiful, exotic wood patterns, and variations in the wood grain that will bring you joy to hold and admire.
