    This is the new Pro Classic 5 Series with Cedar top and Macassar Ebony sides & back. Along with the striking beauty, it has an amazing sound and feel. Kalei demo's this new model for us:

    Macassar Ebony is one of the premier exotic woods used in high end custom acoustics. Even higher in cost than koa wood but the sound quality is undeniably choice. How so?

    Clean and crisp, rich with overtones and singing sustain, and coupled with a cedar top, the tone of this Macassar is absolutely perfect for what many look for. Cedar has a "broken in" quality, or a sweetness in sound that it takes other woods many years to attain. What I notice is that the Macassar adds definition, projection, and reverberating sustain. And that's not to mention the looks.

    All woods were not created equal and never has that been more evident. Framing off this exquisite ebony is Hawaiian koa wood binding. This gives contrast but with a warm earthy tone. For the first time in years koa is used with Pono. This accent enhances the overall visual appeal. 

    This model, like all new Pro Classics from Pono has a radius fingerboard. It's not an extreme radius, and is hardly noticeable until pointed out. But it surely adds to the comfort of play. We must warn you, if you get this instrument, your others may get ignored. It's a treat in every way.

    The truss rod advantage. The newer, higher quality Pono case. Many things give value to the newest Pro Classics. Namely, the precision workmanship and skill level of these builders. It also shows a persistence for excellence that Ko'olau has. This ET5 is exceptional! The ultimate Pono! Don't hesitate to add this beauty to your collection.

    Comes with Hardshell Case. Photos and video are stock typical.

    Beautiful ukulele, sounds and plays as nice as it looks. It has a high G now I will try a low G and compare, but I expect it to sound great either way.
