The AT has been a hit for the last decade, but this latest version looks and sounds better than ever! It now has an ebony bridge, fingerboard, and faceplate. The sound is warm and full with wonderful projection.

Photos and video are stock typical. Take a listen to Corey playing this Pono AT.

Acacia is part of the same family of trees as Hawaiian Koa, and it comes from a very similar species found throughout Asia. This instrument was built on one of the Indonesian Islands, with hands-on guidance and quality control from the Ko'olau Ukulele Company. The finest instrument makers construct these instruments to Ko'olau specs and design. This satin finish is very clean. The woods selected for this model are beautiful and instrument grade, as well as cut and dried properly. 

A key feature, in all of the Pono tenors and baritones, is the dual-action adjustable truss rod. The truss rod stabilizes and adjusts the lengthwise forward curvature, also called relief, of the neck. It can be easily adjusted from inside the soundhole using the included allen wrench. Over time and with humidity changes this is a very useful option to have.

    Very satisfied with this Uke, Pono At Acacia Tenor. No Pono's where I live (Denver), so I couldn't compare mahagony or mango versions. Mine came with free hard case for $399, which is pretty amazing. I have a 2011 Ko'olau KC Concert (basic model) satin finish and I must say the workmanship on the Pono is probably even better, if you can believe it. I had the Pono AT strung with low G (wound metal G&C), but didn't like the squeek so changed to Fremont "soloist" polished low G string and a flurocarbon (Oasis) C string. I got this Tenor to play around with low G and am loving it. If you change the strings on low G don't forget, low-G note is G3: 196hz. A high-g is G4: 392hz. The volume might not be as loud as say a KoAloha, but I don't see how the sustain could be any better. If you're looking for a daily player for low money, this Uke can't be beat, especially with the Hawaii Music Supply spot on full set up. So in summary, maybe not the prettiest or loudest Ukulele, but for the money I really don't see how there can be any regrets. I love this Ukulele!!! Just get it and take the extra time to get full set

    Just got this beauty about two weeks ago. I have played it everyday since and am improving pretty quickly. My last uke was a gift, a Lanikai Lu-21 soprano. I played it pretty frequently. As I improved over several months I started to notice a significant buzz. I stopped playing the Lanikai because the buzz annoyed me so much. I've been waiting to upgrade for several years and finally decided to for my 40th bday. My initial budget was $300 max but after a bit of research realized that Pono was the way to go so increased by budget to afford the Pono AT. LOVE the tenor size. Got the stock stings; the wound C string took me a bit to get used to but now really like. Got a high G. I love feeling the vibration against my body. This thing really hums. Built up some calluses on my fingers so now try to play at least an hour a day. If your looking for something to love this one is great!! Everyone at HMS was great especially Zach! He was really helpful for me. Thank to everyone there and to Eli for a wonderful setup! I will be buying from HMS again! Right now I'm looking at the Pono Mahogany Slothead Tenor Pro Classic (MTSH-PC) for my next bday!

    I have had this ukulele for about 4 months now and wow, it just popped into another level of sound. I don't know why, but the sound was just ok, then last week I noticed the sound changed and now is so good, I cannot go a day without playing. I love it. Thanks boys.

    After talking with Arron i decided to go with the Pono AT. I have NO regrets. The instrument is beautiful, holds it's tuning well and has a subtlety of tone and expression to it i have never experienced previously. Thanks for the excellent advice and fabulous setup. SOMEDAY i hope to buy a fancier model, but this wonderful uke is a real joy to play. I'm in no hurry to upgrade.
