Flight Spirit Electro-Acoustic Concert Ukulele Solid Acacia "Night Hawk"

*NOTE - You will receive the Flight in the PHOTOS

** NOTE - The video shows the Flight Mustang (Tenor) but you'll get the Flight Spirit (Concert) model.

A wild Spirit that belongs in the wilderness and can't be tamed. Mustang's younger brother, Spirit, is a concert-sized, all solid acacia ukulele in its natural color.

Unique features include an intricately designed top sound hole, scalloped cutaway, offset dots on blackwood fingerboard and captivating headstock shape. This ukulele is shaped and neatly packed to harness percussive punch, volume and tone inside this beautiful acacia concert. Spirit is an instrument that will let you fly free without limits.

Acacia is a wood that has a long heritage in ukulele building for its punch, volume and tone. For the Royal series Flight chose only the highest-grade acacia which sounds as stunning as it looks. Beautiful natural finish brings out the best of the acacia grain.

Tech Ebony is a composite wood used by many high end luthiers. Flight is a great believer in using the right material for the job and has no hesitation in using composites where it will bring the highest quality to the instrument as well as contribute to global sustainability. The high-end Tech Ebony is a stunning alternative to rosewood which the flagship Royal Series is well deserving and means you can travel the world without the stress of CITES certification.

String-through bridge is one of the latest ukulele trends. It makes the top resonate better, due to strings being attached directly through the top soundboard, and not to the bridge. Changing the strings might seem a bit confusing at first, but actually it is easier. D'Addario strings have recently been rising in popularity and after lots of tests Flight decided to feature them on the Royal series.

The scalloped cutaway was a real hit in the Victoria ukulele and it was a no brainer to repeat it in Mustang and Spirit. This intelligent design allows for playing up the frets but without the compromise on volume and tone that many full cutaways inflict. It also showcases the absolute craftsmanship and mastery of Flight's luthier.

Why let everyone else hear how wonderful your ukulele sounds and not gain the benefit yourself? Flight realises that you can hear the full tone and volume of ukes by introducing a sound hole at the top of the instrument. Flight also feels it contributes to the quality of the sound as a whole. Some people aren't a fan of the appearance of a side sound hole which is why they have created an intricate design that gives you all the benefits of a normal sound hole whilst maintaining a solid appearance to the structure.

Most of serious ukulele brands use passive piezo pickup, which is why for their higher-end models Flight decided to shift from using EQ system to passive piezo. It makes the ukulele lighter and more balanced, eliminates the unwanted string rattle and provides as a strap button.
