    New Pono Acacia Concert w/Oahu Hardshell Case

    Quarter Sawn Solid Acacia Wood -Satin Finish- Now with Ebony Fretboard and bridge!

    Pono Ukulele is a branch of Ko'olau Ukulele. This is the Brand New Acacia Series from Pono. This concert is certainly one of the best deals you can find. It has a wonderful body and projection! The Pono AC is gonna be winning over the hearts of many. 

    Acacia is a family of trees that Hawaiian Koa belongs to. This is not Hawaiian Koa but 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. These are constructed by the finest instrument makers and to Ko'olau specs and design. This satin finish has a woody look and tone and still shows off this gorgeous Pacific Island wood. We were happy to hear this wood is impressive with tonal character!

    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.

    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 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. 

    After adding this instrument to your cart, you can still create your own package by adding a case or accessories from the website.

    Under the accessories tab you can also customize this instrument by adding strap button(s) or your choice of pickup for plugging in. 

    Get a free shipping quote by adding this to your cart. If your cart reaches $400 dollars or more, orders to the US will receive free FedEX 2 day shipping. 2 days is the time in transit, your instrument will first go through our setup department so that you get the best instrument for your money. For more information on our setup process, turnaround time, shipping, and return policies, refer to the links below at our footer.

    Great ukulele!
    Before making a purchase, I did a lot of research and tested a lot of different ukuleles. However, I was unable to get my hands on a Pono. After a lot of reading and research into what goes on at "theukulelesite" I took a gamble and ordered 3 ukuleles: 1 Pono RTSH(S)PC and 2 Pono ACS. After about 20 days, I received my ukuleles in perfect condition. Let me just say, they all sound and play fantastic! I couldn't be happier! The action and intonation are just about perfect and the sound is absolutely beautiful. That goes for all 3 ukuleles. The guys at "theukulelesite" did such a good job working on the 2 Pono ACs that I can't even tell them apart when I'm playing them. Simply outstanding! The work they put into these ukuleles is nothing short of amazing. Not only do I highly recommend the Pono ACs, but more importantly I recommend making your purchase through "theukulelesite." I probably won't need a new ukulele anytime soon but if I do, I will definitely know where to buy it from. A+++

    Pono AC Concert - Great Packaging
    One thing I failed to mention in my prior review of this uke is the care that the Ukulele Site shipping department takes in boxing up the unit. As mentioned in my prior review, this is the second uke I've ordered from this site and both arrived in perfect condition thanks to the awesome packing job. Thanks!!

    Excellent Value! Pono's Are Great!
    I just received my new Pono AC concert uke today and have been putting it through it's paces. It is spot on in terms of elegant looks, fit & finish and intonation up and down the fretboard. As with my other Pono, (this is my second Pono from The Ukulele Site) their excellent setup service is nothing short of GREAT!! I truly appreciate the time and care these experts take in ensuring everything is "ready to go" before it leaves their facility.
    Needless to say, I am VERY pleased with my new use and will be ordering from the Ukulele Site in the future.
    Mahalo to all the folks at HMS!

    delightful
    I ordered this one with a low-G string, and on receiving it I've been goofing my way through the Lyle Lite book. I suspect it's a combination of Lyle Ritz's genius arrangements and this oh so lovely instrument that's allowing me to make the most delightful music. Besides the tonal qualities, the intonation is good (although not perfect) and the satin finish is flawless. I cannot recommend the Pono Acacia Concert more highly.I ordered it with the Oahu case, which fits like the proverbial glove.

    my first "real" uke
    Gorgeous instrument; design, sound & appearance with a "sweet-floral" tone! Unbelievable fast shipping to the mainland. I would highly recommend this ukulele and this site. I'm waiting to buy another!

    A good buy!!!
    This ukulele is a solid buy for a solid price! The satin finish on the wood is beautiful, and the construction is seemless! The sound quality is beyond believable and will be certain to turn heads when played!
    I personally play in bars and in the barracks (Army guy), and I've never wielded a more perfect instrument.

    Truly an investment!
    Where to start with this thing? She (my ukulele) is the most beautiful thing ever! The satin finish is smooth, and the rich tone from the wood stands out from any other ukulele. The rosewood fretboard is the perfect size for my fingers (I have small man hands), and the the entire body feels solid. You honestly could not get a better ukulele for this price. I now suggest Pono to all of my friends and they all agree.
    Thank you Hawaii Music Supply!!!!

    I Love This Ukulele
    The Uku was shipped fast and was in perfict shape. The sound is good
    Acacia and koa wood is the only sound for me.
    And for the money i don't think you'll find a better sound.
    It is built well and looks great.
    I own 5 Ukulele and this is my new favorite.
    Love your web sight too.
    Thanks and Aloha

    This is a great concert size ukulele for any level player
    I bought this as a gift for someone new to playing a string instrument but well versed in piano. They have been playing my ukuleles and having a great time. I want them to continue learning so I bought something they could have fun playing for a long time. It is beautiful and sounds great, and is a dream to play. Couldn't really ask for more. Thank you HMS for your great service and fast shipping.

    Great Uke for the money
    I received my Pono concert all acacia back in the summer from Hawaii Music supply. It's a great sounding and very well constructed uke for this price range. I am very pleased with it in every way and the guys at HMS provided great service and info over the phone. I can't say enough about how good they are to deal with. Excellent set-up on the instrument. Plays great!

    Stunning ukulele with beatiful sound!
    The Pono Acacia Concert with satin finish was the second uke I bought, after deciding to upgrade from a cheap entry level uke which i've played for around 6 months. I was looking for a ukulele for an intermidiate uke player, with whole wood, in a concert size for a reasonable price. After playing a shitty ukulele for a long time, I wanted to feel like I was holding a REAL instrument, and not a toy. I'm not really into alot of fancy parts with abalone inlays or a super glossy look, I wanted a clean ukulele with a good sound and a nice 'down to earth' look. I never looked back. This ukulele is stunningly beautiful, without all the inlays or anything, it just shows of the beautiful acacia wood, and sounds tremendous! Paired with Aquila strings this instrument really sounds amazing! I have nothing to regret buying this instrument, it look lovely and sounds even better! Highly reccomnended!

    Beautiful and punchy
    Beautiful wood that has a 3d-ish kind of effect. Wood has an excellent tone. I can feel the back of the ukulele vibrating when I play it. Not Hawaiian koa? But for the price it is hard to beat.

    Beautiful Ukulele
    I upgraded from a Lanikai LU 21P to this Pono and I am so happy with my decision. This uke sounds so sweet, looks gorgeous, and is easy to play. The sound sample provided here accurately represents what this ukulele sounds like, which is something I was really worried about when looking around online for an ukulele. It's so hard to try to pick out an instrument without ever having played it first but Hawaii Music Supply makes it as easy as possible for those of us without the luxury of a local music shop with quality ukes.

    The only thing (and it's a very small thing) is that I noticed after a few days that there is what looks like a bit of lint or a small, clear fiber that got caught in the finish on the body of the uke. You don't notice it unless you turn the ukulele just the right way where the light catches it. It's so unobtrusive that I never notice it unless I make the effort to find it, so it's not a problem for me. Other than that one, small, insignificant thing, this ukulele is perfect and I am very happy with it.

    This was my first time purchasing an ukulele from Hawaii Music Supply and I will definitely be coming back for all future ukulele purchases (in fact, I've already ordered another uke from here as a birthday gift for someone else!) I love the HMS setup and the shipping was quick and not too expensive.

    authentic sound, great player,looks cool
    As far as a German Player can say so--it has a real authentic Hawaiian sound,specially with " Aquila" strings its fun to play even at the " higher" frets, looks really cool -but the tuning machines could be of a little better quality..
