The finish on this uke will make your audience look twice. The unusual geometric pattern creates a three-dimensional look. If you like optical illusions and graphic art – this is the uke for you!
Thanks to a wider arched ABS back, this baby has more volume in middle range than your average soprano, while also resonating better and sounding brighter. It is needless to mention the durability and resistance to humidity changes, the main enemies of the wooden ukuleles.
Linden is a wood characterised by a bright sound and sleek texture. It also absorbs water colours in a very interesting way creating very cool patterns, which means that no uke is the same and your uke will be the one and only.
The neck and fingerboard are made from ABS plastic. It is a perfect solution for entry class ukuleles, since it is not prone to any weather changes. You will never get a sharp fret or bent neck in any of our Travel ukuleles. The neck surface imitates the wood pattern, to avoid a feeling of cheap plastic.
Zero fret paired with unique bridge construction keeps the string action low and intonation on point. Since the plastic is never going to move, you will never have to deal with any additional work on the saddle.
Headstock design is an integral part of our identity. The headstock veneer is made of linden to match the top. All Flight ukuleles feature a carefully-designed headstock fitted with geared tuners that will always stay in tune.
The final touch that the Travel Ukulele needed was a cool gig bag to accompany it on your travels. Flight chose the blue denim color to compliment your style and also to make the bag stand out from the standard black.
