Pono AT All Solid Acacia Tenor Ukulele Satin Finish
Professional quality Tenor instrument which has the look, the build, the sound, the works - at a very affordable price. Made in an excellent facility in Indonesia, the quality control is super tight. No unnecessary bling is added to this model at all - the satin finish Acacia makes a very warm but balanced sound with a rich bass, and tight, chiming trebles. The finish really allows the beautiful grain in the Acacia wood shine though.
This is the warmer sounding of the two Pono Acacia Tenors - if you prefer a brighter sound, the Deluxe Gloss Pono ATD would be a better choice.
The instrument pictured is a good representation of average. If you would like to see photos of actual stock, please drop us a line.

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.
