For 10 years now the Pono acacia soprano has been one of our best selling ukes. This new ASSD is the same as the ASD, solid acacia soprano with a gloss finish, but it has a concert scale neck. It retains the full, warm tone of the regular soprano but with added room between frets for easier play-ability to many, and extra projection, clarity, and sustain in the tone.

Kalei gives us a short review and sound sample. 

This new Pono model is a great little uke that fits in a soprano case for light traveling but plays more like a concert. It has a classic tone and a classy look!

We set up each instrument to ensure you get the absolute best for your money! And we always include a humidifier with solid wood instruments. Upgrades on that and case discounts available in the options.

Cases available in the options at a discount. When you get a solid wood instrument like this you want to protect it and make sure there is a humidifier with it in the case if that is needed.

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Humistat, included humidifier, for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier 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 are heating the air in your house. 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. 

Put a note in the special instructions if you need to or would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything.

Perfect fit for big guy :)
I already have Tenor Kanile'a and Islander, learning few months; I tried to check if there are some smallest Soprano for fun... and I found this one, Super-Soprano (Concert-size fretboard). Unfortunately Pono website does not list this ASSD model yet! I ordered from your site, with full setup, it was fast, safe delivery to Canada by DHL. Extremely well built, super nice sound! This newborn Pono (Acacia) sounds better than my newborn Kanilea PKE-T (Koa) but I expect Kanilea will open in few months for true sound.

Also, super important for me is that I can play all frets! I have large hands (size L), I am 5'10", and I do not feel it is too small size for me; just perfect.

Super good quality. Looks amazing, sounds wonderful. Thank you HMS and Pono!
