Pictures show the ukulele available here. This is from a small batch of the new Master Series from Ko'olau's Pono line. For now, we have exclusivity on this new line and are able to mark the price down more and give you a superb value.

Kalei samples this ukulele during our last video podcast.

 

Three years ago Ko'olau luthier Ryan Condon built us a lattice braced tenor that sounded phenomenal. We commissioned him to make full blueprints and sent that along with the lattice braced top you can see in the last picture to the team at Pono for a new master series model.

This project was started over two years ago and we are SO happy with the tone, even excited! All of these master series sound fantastic!

This ukulele features beautiful mahogany for the sides and back and an Engelmann spruce top. This tone combination has been one of the most loved for many years and for good reason, light weight, excellent strength, and vibrant tone. This model, as you can see, is upgraded with a gorgeous vintage sunburst that pictures don't do justice. Absolutely beautiful!

Features include a rope rosette, top and back binding with purflings, a gorgeous gloss finish body and faceplate with a smooth satin neck, radius fingerboard, Grover 18:1 gear ratio tuners, and adjustable truss rod. The construction is excellent, the feel is wonderful, but the tone is what makes this instrument stand out.

We think you'll truly love playing this wonderful new ukulele!

Includes our black Oahu Hardshell Case.

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.

Options

CASE
This ukulele comes with the Black Oahu Hardshell case.

Humidifier (Options at the "Humidifier Options above)

Another option is to add a ukulele humidifier. This is required if you live in a low humidity area or if you use indoor heating/cooling, especially for areas with winter seasons or hot summers. If you are heating the air in your house, the air will become extremely dry.

Regardless of the outside humidity levels, the indoor humidity levels will drop dramatically once the air is heated. The same is true for air conditioning, usually not as drastic of a humidity drop as a heater, but it will remove a significant amount of moisture from the air as well. In either case, it is always a good idea to supplement with a humidifier that you store in the case with the instrument while not in use. This is usually a requirement by Ukulele manufacturers in order to keep the instrument covered under warranty.

In order to humidify the instrument, you will need a case for the humidifier to work properly and you will need to maintain the humidifier by refilling it as needed.

Other Options (Many found in the essential accessories above)

Another option is to switch your string set or change from high G tuning to low G tuning or vice-versa. Just add the strings you want and choose the restring option at the string listing. 

After adding this instrument to your shopping cart, you can add extra accessories from the website or from this page. installation of strap button(s) if you like to use a strap.
Add a pickup installation so you can play through an amplifier.
Get a free shipping quote by adding this to your cart. If your cart reaches $500 dollars or more, domestic US orders will receive free FedEx 2 day shipping. (2 business days is the time in transit once the instrument departs)

Setup Options

 

Current Turnaround Time: Amount of time it takes before shipment-

Full Setup: 7-10 Days

Basic Quality Control: 2-3 Days

BASIC QUALITY CONTROL covers inspecting the instrument for any major defects that would have been missed by the factory and any faults in construction that could potentially damage or limit the functionality of the instrument over time. Any defective instruments are rejected and replaced.  We make sure that each Ukulele meets the basic standard for a brand new instrument and will be ready to play once you receive it. A final cleanup is also included after inspection before packing and shipment.

Full Setup - FREE for all Ukuleles $399 and over / $20.00 for Ukuleles from $300-399 / $30.00 for Ukuleles Under $300


Includes:


-Overall QC evaluation: To find defects in construction as well as to get an overall view of the instrument and note the areas that need extra attention and adjustment during the setup.

-Saddle Adjustment: The height of the saddle is lowered to reduce the distance between the strings and the fretboard, making it easier to play than the factory setup, especially higher up the fretboard.

-Nut Slot Adjustment: The depth, width, and angle of the nut slots are adjusted to create a more comfortable playing experience especially on the lower frets.

-Fret Dressing: After adjusting the nut and saddle heights, high spots in the fretboard or uneven frets will potentially cause fret buzz, dead spots, or other unwanted problems. The frets are filed to create a more consistent level across the fretboard. We then crown the frets to return their rounded curvature back to the top of each fret creating a clear contact point for each string. We then smooth and polish the frets and condition the fingerboard to bring them back to new condition.

-Final Cleanup: We always do a final overall cleanup of the instrument to make sure it is in new condition and ready to play before it is prepared for shipment.

Rush Setup & Delivery - Additional $50.00
The RUSH SETUP AND DELIVERY service is for customers who would still like to receive everything included in the full setup but on a shorter time frame. One of our setup technicians will work overtime outside of normal business hours to complete the setup within 2-3 days of the order being placed and immediately hand it over to the shipping department for packing and shipment. The $50.00 rush charge is in addition to the cost of the full setup. 

Additional services (see individual product listings to add these services to your order)
Re-stringing: We will replace the factory installed stock string set with a new set of your choosing. Select the “replace stock strings” option when adding your desired string set to the shopping cart.

Strap Button Installation: 1-2 buttons are installed to allow the use of a strap. Color options available. 

Pickup installation: for players who would like the option to play or record with amplification.

Friction Tuner Upgrade (friction tuners only): We offer upgrade options for select instruments with friction tuners to be retrofitted with new geared tuners for better precision and comfort when tuning.
