    New Cedar Top Mahogany Tenor Pro Classic

    The Pono Pro Classics for 2018 have side sound ports, new wood rosettes, gloss bodies and faceplate with smooth satin necks. Other small adjustments were made to slightly slim the necks and lighten their weights along with a few adjustments to the bracing, these bringing Pono that much closer to the illustrious custom Ko'olau feel and tone.

    This model features many players favorite tone wood combo, a western red cedar top and Honduran mahogany sides and back. It has the radius fretboard for extra comfort when chording and the back of the mahogany neck is a smooth satin finish for seamless sliding for your left hand. The beautiful body and faceplate woods are shown off and protected with a glassy smooth lacquer finish. This extremely strong finish is just a few thousandths of an inch thick, and this art of uninhibited protection is one of the keys to Pono's excellent tone. Kalei goes over some of the features and gives us a raw sound sample from this new model.

    All the way across the pacific and almost to Australia, a hand full of super talented craftsman on the island of Java are making Pono guitars and ukuleles. Pono means excellence, and they have been living up to it. The value in this tenor package is obvious and we give it our highest recommendations.

    All of the Pono tenor and baritone models have a 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 an easy thing to adjust.

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

    Options

    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.

    This includes the deluxe wooden Pono Case is an excellent fit and protection.

    Extra Options

    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 home. 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. 

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

    Under the Accessories tab you can also customize this instrument by adding strap button(s) or your choice of pickup for plugging in. 

    Get a free shipping quote by adding this to your cart. If your cart reaches $400 dollars or more, orders to the US will receive free UPS 2 day shipping. Two days is the time in transit. Your instrument will first go through our setup department so that you get the best instrument for your money. International orders on ukes over $800 get free shipping. For more information on our setup process, turnaround time, shipping, and return policies, refer to the links below in our footer.

    All Pono tenor and baritone ukuleles come with a lightweight dual action adjustable truss rod. This video explains that feature and gives directions if you ever need to adjust it.
