The first small batch of Pono TE models came in and they are really nice! A solid chambered acacia body topped with the finest North American red cedar. This is the gloss Deluxe model with the Pono pickup. Along with a truss rod to fine tune perfect action it features a radius fingerboard for a buttery smooth playing experience. Macassar ebony fingerboard and faceplate are stunning and the custom made hardshell case is the finest CE Ko'olau case to date. These are made in Ko'olau Java factory and pickup installation and setup is done at the Ko'olau custom shop in Wahiawa, Hawaii.
<>John Kitakis, owner of Ko'olau, has been working with his talented crew across the ocean every month! He is determined to produce a superior product and the finest materials are used.
NOTE: This price is with the Pono Passive pickup. There is an option below to upgrade to a MiSi. Both are wonderful in tone. The video below shows it with the Pono pickup. Video and pictures are stock typical. (They all look like this..beautiful!)
If you want a pro-level tenor with top of the line recording and live capabilities, a unique and beautiful uke that you can play at night without waking up the kids or plan to bring on trips without taking up much space, this is your uke! We guarantee it will be a unique and loved addition to your ukulele ohana. Awesome hardcase included.
These ukuleles have the best electric ukulele sound you will find! The body is chambered for extra resonance while plugged in, a lighter weight, and that chambering gives it enough acoustic sound to enjoy and practice with it unplugged.
The CE Ko'olau has been used by many local professional musicians because of its feedback resistance, big warm sound, and extremely smooth feel. Now there is an affordable version and the quality is right on par.
This is a tenor-sized instrument and comes with a tenor hardshell case made just for it.
