Essential Accessories & Popular Customizations

The CE Ko'olau has been used by many local professional musicians because of it’s feedback resistance, big warm sound, and extremely smooth feel. Now there is an affordable version and the quality is right on par.

This model is satin finish with a solid chambered all acacia body. It will come with a Pono passive pickup unless you choose the active Misi pickup in the options below.

Along with a truss rod to fine tune perfect action, it also features a radius fingerboard for a buttery smooth playing experience. Rosewood fingerboard and bridge are stunning and the custom made hardshell case is the finest CE Ko'olau case to date. These are made in the Ko'olau Java factory and pickup installation and setup is done at our workshop right next to the Ko'olau custom shop in Wahiawa Hawaii.

The body is chambered for extra resonance while plugged in, a lighter weight, and that chambering gives it enough acoustic sound to enjoy and practice with it unplugged.

John Kitakis, owner of Ko'olau, has been working with his talented crew across the ocean every month! He is determined to produce a superior product and the finest materials are used. This one is from a one time run of stained woods.

This is a tenor sized instrument and comes with a tenor hardshell case made just for it. Pics are stock typical.

Options

When you buy this ukulele you get a Deluxe Pono/Ko'olau hardshell wooden case  

One of the options for this ukulele is is to switch from high G tuning (like in the video) to low G tuning. This is a blog article discussing it if you are not sure whether you want High or Low G?

Another option is to switch from the Pono passive system to the Misi active system. The Pono is pickup is more than sufficient for excellent tone, but if you feel like you want a "hotter" active pickup system you can upgrade.

Put a note in the special instructions if you need to or would like to let our setup or shipping department know anything. 

After adding this instrument to your cart, you can still create your own package by adding a case or accessories from the website.

Setup Options

Most people shop with us because of the extensive quality control and final setup work we provide at no extra cost on all ukuleles we ship out. However this is time consuming work and creates a delay in shipping. We are now offering an "Expedited Setup" for those wanting to receive their instrument faster. See details on the Full Setup and Expedited Setup options along with current turnaround times for each at the link- HERE.

Get a free shipping quote by adding this to your cart. If your cart reaches $400 dollars or more, orders to the US will receive free UPS 2 day shipping. 2 days is the time in transit. Your instrument will first go through our setup department so that you get the best instrument for your money. For more information on our setup process, turnaround time, shipping, and return policies, refer to the links below at our footer.

All Pono tenor and baritone ukuleles come with a lightweight dual action adjustable truss rod. This video explains that feature and gives directions if you ever need to adjust it.

Setup Options

 

Current Turnaround Time: Amount of time before shipping-
Full Setup: 3-6 Days
Full Setup RUSH: 2-4 days
Basic QC Only: 2-4 days

Basic Quality Control - $0.00 (Always Free)

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 - $40.00 for Ukuleles Under $399 / Free for Ukuleles $399+ 


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.
