Details

All solid Acacia makes for one of the best value, best sounding and best looking baritone instruments in its class. Similar to Koa tonally, the acacia gives a beautiful chime to the sound, with bags of sustain and a very refined, balanced tone. The satin finish helps to round the sound out little as well so the bass sounds very rich and smooth indeed. It is when playing up the fretboard that you realise how good the sustain and intonation is - even very high up, notes take a long time to die, and they are well in tune as well.

We retrofit a high quality Fishman PRO-AGO-UKE passive undersaddle pickup with a chrome jack socket to the Pono AB to make this model ready for you to plug in and play.

Suitable for all styles of playing, very classy all round!

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 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.
