Pono TE Deluxe model with solid chambered figured acacia body topped with the "finest North American red cedar". This is the deluxe model with a gloss finish and an upgraded Misi pickup and charger. Along with a truss rod to fine tune perfect action it features a radius fingerboard of Macassar ebony (faceplate and bridge are also Macassar ebony) plus a custom made Ko'olau hardshell case. This Pono was made in Ko'olau Java factory with the pickup installation and setup done at the Ko'olau custom shop in Wahiawa, Hawaii. Strings are Mahana, reentrant.

This is in “as new” condition. Absolutely no dings, dents, or scratches. I'm trying to trim my number of ukes.
SOLD

Here is a very recent sound sample through a Yamaha THR-5A.

Wow, that's really nice Hodge. Tell me, did you ever push this through a high gain amp or model? Wondering how it would handle Smoke On the Water. :music::p

How would you compare it to it's more expensive Koolau electric cousin?

The only other amp I have is Rogue $20 Amp, and the Yamaha THR-5A sounded so good, I never tried it.

Good question. But, I can't say as I never played a Ko'olau CE.
