Limited Edition models are our way of expanding our ukulele lineup. Limited models are built with the specs of one of our three regular models (Honu, Mano, Kohala Deluxe) serving as the foundation, but we substitute a key ingredient to create a completely different tone or look. Limited models are just that, limited. Each one is produced in very limited quantities, and as they sell out they will be replaced by new limited models throughout the year.
Perfect for anyone wanting to dip their toe into the ukulele water, our Honu series was designed to provide as much instrument as we could at an entry level price. The laminate zebrawood we chose for this Limited Edition boasts bright, unique wood grains and a heavy, rich tone, but retains the durability against humidity and temperature that our Honu series is famous for. As with all Honolua Ukuleles, it includes premium features designed to produce the best tone possible at an affordable price, including bone nut and saddle for better clarity and sustain, open back machine heads for tuning precision and eco-friendly wood selections.

Our Limited Edition Zebrawood Honu Series is perfect for the beginner ukulele player. The all-laminate zebrawood construction provides a heavy, rich tone and the laminate construction means it is durable and less susceptible to humidity changes. While the appointments are simple, the bright, unique patterns on each piece of zebrawood are anything but.

Size - Tenor
After a surge in popularity in the last couple of years, the tenor is poised to become the biggest selling uke body size soon. At 26", it is another increase in size from the concert (at 24"). The benefits of that larger size: you get even more room on the fingerboard to shape the chords and the larger body provides even more resonance, volume and depth. The tenor ukulele will sound quite a bit deeper than the other options, so it strays a bit from traditional ukulele tone.
