Plastic Fantastic! Conventional wisdom will say that plastic ukuleles are cheap, low-quality substitutes for “the real thing”. Well, it’s time to kick conventional wisdom out the door! With a body built unapologetically from plastic and a laminate linden top, the sound quality of these ukuleles will blow you away, and their durability will make them Keith Richards’ instrument of choice after Armageddon hits. These ukes are perfect for rainy festivals, cramped overhead lockers, moody teenagers, and ukulele teachers working with young children.
The TUS35 uses laminate linden wood for the sound board. Linden is characterized by a bright sound and sleek texture. It also absorbs color in a very interesting way that creates very cool patterns. Flight also use a special technique to apply the color, creating even more pattern variation. This means that no two models of the TUS35 look exactly the same, making your ukulele unique.
ABS NECK & FINGERBOARD
The neck and fingerboard of the TUS-35 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.
GOOD-LOOKING AND EASY TO TUNE
Headstock design is an integral part of our identity. The headstock veneer of TUS35 is made of linden and matches the color of the top. All Flight ukuleles feature a carefully-designed headstock fitted with geared tuners that will always stay in tune.
ALWAYS READY TO GO
The final touch that the Travel Ukulele needed was a cool gig bag to accompany it on your travels. Flight chose the blue denim colour to compliment your style and also to make the bag stand out from the standard black that everyone else seems to favour.
