The “Thai Pi” has arrived at UkeSA Hawaii
The New “Thai Pi” Pineapple Sunday
It is with great pride and joy that I can recommend this Thailand Pineapple Sunday (Thai Pi) to anyone who has wanted to purchase a Pineapple Sunday because the offering price makes this version much more affordable than the ones I personally handcraft here in Hawaii. Whatever choice is made, I guarantee that both will bring joy and satisfaction beyond words.

Please note that the difference between this Pineapple Sunday and the others on this website is that these Acacia Pineapple Sunday’s are made in Thailand to Pop’s specifications. The others are handmade by Pops, himself, in Hawaii. Below is the story of these amazing and affordable offerings told by Pops, himself.
Before commissioning our factory in Thailand to start producing this more economically priced Pineapple Sunday model, they came to the shop in Hawaii and learned the processes involved in order to achieve the same quality that I was insistent upon them duplicating. The leaders returned home and in a few months, sent a few samples for inspection. I was more than pleased because the workmanship, playability and every other aspect was close to perfect. Obviously, my opinion was supported by the brisk sales that ensued as soon as this version was introduced on the market.
Also included is a soft case that is made of a really thick canvas type of fabric with huge heavy duty
double zipper. It also has a cute monogram in color at the bottom front end of the case.
