Flight DUC523CEQ Concert Electro Ukulele, Mahogany
Flight DUC523CEQ Mahogany Electro-Acoustic Concert Ukulele
The Flight DUC 523 CEQ is a concert-sized ukulele. It features a solid mahogany top, paired with laminate mahogany back and sides, giving it a warm and resonant sound. The rosette features a surfer riding the waves, reminiscent of the history of the ukulele and its origins in Hawaii.
The DUC523 CEQ features a solid mahogany top and laminate mahogany back and sides. Mahogany is a hardwood that has been used to make quality musical instruments for centuries. Its colour can vary a fair amount, from a pale pinkish brown to a darker reddish-brown, and it tends to darken with age.
Okoume Neck & Walnut Fingerboard
The neck and fingerboard of the DUC523 are made from African okoume and walnut. It’s a great combination that guarantees a stable intonation across the fretboard, is gentle to your hands, and looks great as well.
Bone Nut & Walnut Bridge
The nut may seem to be a small component, but it plays a critical role in the quality of the sound of an instrument. The nut and saddle of the DUC523 are made from bone (not from plastic). This is just one of the details that makes this ukulele truly special.
Flight FU-T3 pickup system
The preamplifier/EQ is a device that lets you connect a ukulele to an amplifier. The preamp, not usually installed on sopranos, features a tuner, saving you the headache of remembering where you left your tuner the night before! Most importantly though, this small device allows you the freedom to plug in wherever and whenever you like, giving your uke the chance to shine on stage!
Good-looking and easy to tune.
