Pono ACD All Solid Acacia Deluxe Concert Ukulele Gloss
Beautifully well made and finished all solid acacia concert ukulele with a gloss finish. The gloss finish hardens the wood, making the sound a little more immediate and crisper than the satin model, the AC. To our ears, the gloss deluxe version has the more pretty, chiming sound of the two, and if you want greater note separation whilst strumming chords, and greater sustain up the neck then this model is worth the little extra.
Acacia is very much like Koa tonally, with a sound brighter than Mahogany. Ebony and bone fixtures and fittings help to maximise the volume and sustain, especially noticeable when playing in positions up the neck. All in all a very classy instrument suitable for many different styles.
Please note: pictures show a typical example. If you would like photos of available stock, please drop us an email.

About the Pono line: The “Pono” line is made by Ko’olau one of the oldest and most traditional Hawaiian ukulele manufacturers. Ko’olau’s goal throughout the years has been to provide the highest quality stringed instruments available with a high standard of craftsmanship. And besides methods of construction to optimize tone and volume, they stress the importance of cosmetic beauty. It is of interest to note that only the finest grades of quartersawn hardwoods, such as Acacia, Mahogany, Rosewood, and Ebony are selected for Pono instruments. However, only 20% pass the stringent requirements of density, grain patterns, flexibility, and cosmetic aesthetics. This is virtually unknown, especially in the Asian import market. We are proud of the fact that all of the Pono instruments are made of solid woods.
