NEW Acacia Tenor from Pono! The AT has been a hit for at least 8 years now, but this new 2018 version, that just arrived, looks and sounds better than ever! It now has an ebony bridge, fingerboard, and faceplate. The sound is warm and full with wonderful projection. Stay tuned for new media to come, but these models are available here and now. Guaranteed to please! Right now, for a limited time, get an Oahu hard case for free with this model.

Some adjustments, pono has implemented in the last year, made this model slightly lighter in weight than previous versions. In addition, the neck is a touch more slender and the resonance is a little more full. They sound open right off the bat, and they feel great to play. After finer tuning by our setup team this package is a hard value to beat. If you want a great tenor for a reasonable price, this one gets our highest recommendations.

Acacia is part of the same family of trees as Hawaiian Koa, and it comes from a very similar species found throughout Asia. This instrument was built on one of the Indonesian Islands, with hands-on guidance and quality control from the Ko'olau Ukulele Company. The finest instrument makers construct these instruments to Ko'olau specs and design. This satin finish is very clean. The woods selected for this model are beautiful and instrument grade, as well as cut and dried properly. 

A key feature, in all of the Pono tenors and baritones, is the dual-action adjustable truss rod. The truss rod stabilizes and adjusts the lengthwise forward curvature, also called relief, of the neck. It can be easily adjusted from inside the soundhole using the included allen wrench. Over time and with humidity changes this is a very useful option to have. It's a very simple thing to adjust with little room for error.

Photos and video are stock typical.

Here's a video we shot last year at the Pono factory.

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 now offer "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.

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) 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 need to humidify the instrument, you also need a hard case for a humidifier to properly work. Maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed. 

Put a note in the special instructions, if you have any preferences that our setup or shipping department need to be aware of.
