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. Along with a truss rod to fine tune perfect action it features a radius fingerboard for a buttery smooth playing experience. Rosewood fingerboard and faceplate are stunning and the custom made hardshell case is the finest CE Ko'olau case to date. This is the satin finish model with pickup option for Pono passive or MiSi Active.

Video shows the same model but with a gloss finish. You can buy that one -Here

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 spares no expense.

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 one to bring on trips without taking up much space, then acquire one of these new TE models. 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. We guarantee you love this new ukulele!

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. See details on the Full Setup and Expedited Setup options along with current turnaround times for each at the link- HERE.

If you want a different set of strings you can buy them at the strings section and just note that you want us to change them in the special instructions.

No extra charge for Low G, just write "Low G" under Special Instructions.

Great gigging uke
I just received this uke yesterday and it is beautiful. Plays smooth and came 100% setup. I play it through a Fishman Loudbox and some pedals and its a beautiful tone that's perfect for playing live. No feedback but still has the overtones of a wooden uke. Absolutely love it. Will definitely buy from again in the future. Thank you guys!

What an amazing ukulele. Great for the stage because it doesn't cause any feedback. The Pono passive pickup is one of the best sounding pickups (even better than some active ones)

LOVE IT! THANKS Hawaii Music Supply!
My PONO tenor electric came this afternoon and I am in LOVE with it! It is visually beautiful, sounds great even unplugged, clearly quality made, professionally set up, packed and shipped with great care, and I want to thank everyone at Hawaii Music Supply for all that you do. I haven't even plugged in yet, and it already sounds fantastic. I play in an ukulele club, and even unplugged this tenor will be heard in the mix. Can't wait to try it plugged in! It is so easy to make good choices with all the information including video/sound clips that are on the HMS website. And knowing that I'll be getting the best in setup and packing/shipping means I as buyer can trust that my dollars are well spent and that I'll be getting the instrument I was expecting.
