Wow, wow, wow. I love Pono Acacia instruments - they are just about the nicest looking and sounding ukes to come out of the east. This particular model from the Pro Classic range has top end features such as a slotted headstock, radiused fretboard and ebony fixtures and fittings - all of which are lovely but do not add anything to the sound - which is absolutely gorgeous!

This is down to the very carefully selected solid Asian acacia wood, which has lovely tight straight grain, which makes for a beautiful clean sound with lots of volume when required, and clarity when picked gently. Like Koa, the sound is accentuated towards the mids, which makes it a very good choice for blues playing, or accompanying vocals. It is a very good all rounder in all honesty, with nothing that it is bad at, just more prominent in the mid range than something made of mahogany.

In the hand you really have to appreciate the craftsmanship of the clever guys at Pono - it is flawlessly well made, with a very light but incredibly solid body (which is where the impressive sustain and volume come from) and the neck feels very playable and easy.

A complete winner!
