Series: Flight Ukuleles Manufacturer: Flight Format: Stringed Instruments
Rumor has it that pineapple-shaped ukuleles are apparently the great-grandfathers of all modern ukuleles, so of course Flight had to have one in its range. Its round shape gives more volume and a fuller tone than a standard soprano, so not only it looks fun, it can also make a lot of noise!
Sapele is a light hardwood from tropical Africa with a golden to dark reddish brown color. A close relative of mahogany, its grain is interlocked, and has a uniform texture and good natural luster. Its natural resonance is boosted and concentrated by the arched back of the NUP310, yielding a clear and bright tone. The rosettes in all Flight ukuleles are drawn by hand and engraved by laser.
The neck and fingerboard of the NUP310 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.
The nut may be a small component, but one that determines the pitch of the sound. The nut and saddle of the NUP310 are made from bone (not from plastic). Just one of the details that make this ukulele truly special.
Headstock design is an integral part of our identity. All Flight ukuleles feature a carefully-designed headstock fitted with geared tuners that will always stay in tune.
Light and stylish, yet offering excellent protection for your ukulele, Flight gigbags have already become legendary and with one hanging off your shoulder you will definitely make heads turn.
