All Solid Acacia Baritone ~ Bone Nut & Saddle ~ Adjustable Truss Rod!
Pono is making ultra high quality ukes for this mid-price range. This is a great example. Beautiful solid acacia wood voiced just right. We guarantee you will love the feel, sound, and look of this instrument.
This is the bare bones Acacia model. No frills, just beautiful woods, quality components, and our full setup. Satin finish. Kalei gives us a raw sound sample.
A key feature in all of the Pono tenor and baritone models is the dual-action adjustable truss rod. This is used to stabilize and adjust the lengthwise forward curvature (also called relief), of the neck. It can be adjusted from right inside the soundhole with an allen wrench provided. This is something you will probably not need to adjust. But over time and with humidity changes, it is a very useful option to have, and a very easy thing to adjust with little room for error.
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. They sound as good and better than higher end ukes you would pay over a grand for! This instrument is a solid value!
We always include a humidifier with solid wood instruments. This is not an option, and we do not charge for it.
The baritone is a fun and relaxing instrument that any guitar or ukulele player should feel right at home with.
