My name is Dennis Lake and here you‘ll find photos and information on the Custom ‘Ukulele and Guitars I make at my home shop here on the southern slope of Mauna Loa, in the remote and rural Ka‘u District of the Big Island of Hawai‘i. This is a very small shop. I work alone, with an occasional assist from a talented friend. Since all of my instruments are individually made, and most are custom orders, each is really “one of a kind”.

from the Pono web site

Pono instruments are professionally designed and handcrafted by the Ko'olau Guitar and `Ukulele Company on the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java" target="_blank">Island of Java</a>, with final adjustments and set-up on the Island of Oahu, Hawaii.

Here is what the Kitakis familay says about a Pono vs. their higher end Ko'olau, and I whole heartily agree.

> And our Pono workers have the same meticulous and conscientious attitude that we have in Hawaii. We consider our Pono and Ko'olau ukuleles similar to the duo level auto makers such as Toyota/Lexus, Nissan/Infinity, and Honda/Acura. Both are made by the same manufacturer, but made in various locations around the world, and both are very high quality.

<div class="notice notice-quote"><p class="tpm">I've owned five or six Pono ukuleles in the past before I got my Ko'olau and we opened our Funky Frets music store. These are amazing instruments for the cost. - Curt Sheller</p></div>

Andy Powers grew up in a music-loving family in Oceanside, California. At the age of five Andy, the son of a carpenter and his artist wife, had his first workbench and shortly thereafter began playing piano. Andy took up playing the guitar when he was eight. In a house where musical instruments, tools and wood were all readily available, curiosity got the better of him and he began his first attempts at building guitars before the age of ten. With design and sound refinement the instruments began to improve tremendously, and Andy began selling the instruments to customers while he was still a teenager. Having been encouraged by his parents to pursue the arts, he began to explore the world of traditional inlayed art, using his instruments as a canvas.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee
