Beautiful Solid Mahogany and Western Red Cedar Top on this NEW Steel String Baritone. Pictures show exact ukulele available here. 

This is a new and unique instrument from Pono Guitar & Ukulele. It has a 21.4" scale. It's shaped and braced like a mini guitar. This has a smaller body and shorter scale than a tenor guitar, but it's 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, except with 4 strings. It's similar to a smaller tenor guitar, or, if you're more familiar with ukuleles, a larger steel string baritone.

This new model features gorgeous woods, an abalone shell rosette, top and back rosewood binding, a slotted headstock, and a custom fit arched top hardshell case.

Pono only uses solid woods, only bone nut and saddle, and only wood bindings. No plastics. They have a climate-controlled factory on the island of Java. They diligently aim for perfection on every level. It shows!

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.

Setup 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.

Awesome Guitar that plays like an awesome Ukulele!
This is a fantastic instrument! The scale length is very comfortable for me as a mostly-tenor-ukulele-playing guy. I've looked at several tenor guitars, but most are too big, and almost all are entry-level build quality. I was really hoping for something better ... and here it is!
