Woah!! Something new and very very cool from Flight. I think they’ve pushed the boat out here and thrown everything at this one. We have an all solid mango body which has a very nice jangle to it, not dissimilar to koa in it’s lightness and shimmer. It’s really attractive as well and contrasts beautifully with the jet black binding, which is made of dyed maple.
The comfort edge is really nice and makes the uke so comfortable to hold and strum. It just feels great quality. We also have a gorgeous scallop cutaway for access to the higher frets.
The rosewood bridge has very pretty bridge pins with little red gemstones and the sound port is very well cut with an almost stained glass window effect.
As well as all this it has a nice active pickup with volume and tone controls discreetly in the soundhole and a very nice slotted headstock.
It’s string with Worth Browns which help add a touch of warmth to the light mango voice.
I’m super impressed with this one. Flight have managed something really special here.
