Sapele is a light hardwood from tropical Africa with a golden to dark reddish brown colour. 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 NUT310, yielding a clear and bright tone.
The neck and fingerboard of the NUT310 are made from African okoume and rosewood. 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 and saddle of the NUT310 are made from bone (not from plastic!), only one of the many details that make this ukulele so 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. The rosettes in all our ukuleles are drawn by hand and engraved by laser. Each model has a unique design, which one is your favourite?
