Pono Ukuleles

For many years Ko’olau Guitar and Ukulele has been building some of the finest quality ukes money can buy, allowing the customer to pick from many woods and decorative options. The company was founded and is still run by John Kitakis, whose career began as a furniture maker. He moved from the mainland US to Hawaii forty years ago, then for a period of time went back to the mainland doing warranty repair work for Martin,Taylor, Gibson, Guild and other guitar manufacturers, and in between built custom guitars and mandolins. Eventually he, his wife and children returned to Oahu to begin Ko’olau Guitar & Ukulele Company.

Eventually a new line of guitars and ‘ukuleles were introduced. In 2005 John decided a another line of instruments was needed, one of similar high quality, all solid woods, but more affordable. He named them “Pono” which in Hawaiian is defined as excellence. With many years of experience in building Ko’olau guitars and ‘ukuleles, Pono has become the “clone.” The task has been challenging, but the rewards have been proof this was possible, as the Pono line is now at a quality no one has seen before in an import. Current production includes both Pono ‘Ukuleles and Pono Guitars. Guitar production is very limited, again maintaining all solid woods and high quality. All Pono instruments go through multiple and extensive quality control inspections, both in our Java Indonesia factory by John Kitakis, and eventually in Hawaii by both John and his assistant, Danny Navarro.
