Noah Campbell is along side Aaron full time managing the retail store in Haleiwa. He came down to do sound samples and ended up singing Hokulea along with this new mahogany pro classic. It is both pro level and classic in tone. Here's a "dry" sound sample-

It's been years since we saw the all-mahogany Pro Classic baritones and we are glad to see the revised version Pono just came out with. The current production quality from them is certainly the best it's ever been and nothing shows that more than the new Pro Classics we just received.

This model has a beautiful quarter-sawn mahogany body and neck shown off with a gloss lacquer finish. This finish is very protective but is only about 3 thousandths of an inch thick so it doesn't inhibit the tone. The MBSH has ebony bindings and appointments and of course the classy slotted headstock. Includes the new improved wooden case from Pono for an excellent value on a baritone that's hard to beat at any price point. Only a handful of these came in so grab one now while we have them.

Pono is a small crew of talented luthiers. They only use solid woods, bone nut and saddle. and wood bindings, no plastics. Pono has a climate controlled factory on the island of Java and diligently aims for perfection on every level. 

All of the Pono tenor and baritone models have a 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 an easy thing to adjust.

One of the options for this ukulele is to trade out the Herco included humidifier for the more expensive Oasis Ukulele Humidifier (OH-18 or OH-5+). This is suggested if you live in a low humidity area (parts of California, Nevada, Arizona, etc.) or also areas with winter seasons, especially if you heat the air in your home.

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.

A pickup with installation can be added from THIS LINK. And strap Buttons can be installed HERE.

Setup Options

 

Current Turnaround Time: Amount of time before shipping-
Full Setup: 5-7 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.

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.

Left-handed Setup: Left-handed setups are also available upon request. Occasionally an additional charge may be added for compensated saddles on select models.
