Onf-off Mango Steel String Baritone - PICS AND Video show exact instrument available here

This is new and unique instrument from Pono Guitar & Ukulele. It has a 21.4" scale and is shaped and braced like a mini guitar. It's 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 throw back 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 ukulele.

Only one was made to these specs with beautiful mango wood bound in ebony with wood rope purfling, a slotted headstock, and this package includes the deluxe custom fit 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 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 also areas with winter seasons, especially if you heat the air in your home. For more info see our Ukulele Care page
