Flight TUS53 ABS Soprano Travel Ukulele, Mahogany
Flight TUS53 Mahogany Soprano Travel Ukulele
Flight Travel Ukuleles have proven to be one of the best and most robust ukuleles that you can purchase, and Flight continues to expand the number of choices that are available in the series. The Flight TUS53 Mahogany Soprano Travel Ukulele features a laminate mahogany top that will respond to any playing style and add a traditional “look” while doing so. Mahogany is the timeless darling of all ukulele luthiers worldwide. It is strong and full of rich tone and volume making it the king of tonewoods. You won’t want to put this ukulele down, which is why we have adorned it with a beach life design that will compliment your days and nights at the waterfront.
The king of tonewoods
We generally offer our travel series ukuleles with cool colours or stunning graphic designs–but the Flight TUS53 Mahogany Soprano Travel Ukulele offers a nod to classical ukulele design through the use of laminate mahogany. Mahogany is the timeless darling of all ukulele luthiers worldwide. It is strong and full of rich tone and volume making it the king of tonewoods.
ABS neck & fingerboard
The neck and fingerboard of this ukulele are made from ABS plastic. This is a perfect solution for entry-class ukuleles since it is not prone to any weather changes. You will never experience a sharp fret or bent neck on our Travel ukuleles. The neck features a wooden texture, which helps the instrument to feel unlike a plastic ukulele as you play it.
Zero fret & ABS saddle
Our travel ukuleles use a zero fret and adjustable saddle, which keeps the string action low and intonation on point. Since a plastic will not react to weather conditions like a wood ukulele, you will never have to deal with any future saddle adjustments.
Good-looking and easy to tune
Headstock design is an integral part of our identity. The headstock veneer is made of laminate mahogany and matches the soundboard of the ukulele. All Flight ukuleles feature a carefully-designed headstock fitted with geared tuners that will always hold their tuning (once tuned).
Always ready to go
Every Flight ukulele includes a gig bag. While the Travel Series does not need a lot of protection, a gig bag protects the strings and makes the ukulele easier to carry. We chose a blue denim colour to add some style and also to make the bag stand out from the standard black gig bag that everyone else seems to favour. If you find that you would like a gig bag with more features, check out the other gig bags that we sell as accessories!
