Flight A10 FM Faded Blue 10th Anniversary Tenor Ukulele
Solid Flamed Maple Handcrafted Tenor Ukulele
Let your music take
The A10 FM Faded Blue Tenor Ukulele features stunning solid flamed maple for the body of the instrument–resulting in a ukulele that is as stunning to look at as much as it is beautiful to hear. The body is amazing as it fades from natural flamed maple to blue. Each ukulele in our A10 series is handcrafted by a single master luthier.
The finest neck and fingerboard
Maple neck & ebony fingerboard
Maple–used for the neck–is a great, strong, and visually striking hardwood. The fretboard is made of ebony, which is thought to be the finest hardwood for a fingerboard. Ebony gives a clear, crisp attack and offers a slick and fast playing experience.
Bone compensated saddle and pin bridge
The A10 Series features an ebony bridge (matching the fretboard), as well as a real bone nut and a compensated saddle. Compensated saddles help to properly set the intonation of each string. The A10 series uses a pin bridge system, which helps keep the strings properly aligned on the ukulele, as well as to create a break angle over the saddle that transfers vibrations efficiently to the soundboard of the ukulele.
Ebony arm rest
The arm rest on the A10 FM Faded Blue Tenor Ukulele makes it more comfortable to hold and play. The long you play this ukulele, the more you will want to play it!
A twist on our headstock design
Special anniversary headstock
To celebrate our 10th anniversary, we wanted to feature ukuleles with a different headstock, so while the A10 models feature some similarity to our Royal Series, we have adapted the anniversary models with a special twist to make them unique and special.
Incredible gig bag included
Anniversary gig bag
In addition to selling great ukuleles at incredible prices, Flight Ukulele is known for including a gig bag with every ukulele. Our deluxe gig bag is one of the very best gig bags on the market. For these special anniversary models, we have once again improved on our already-fantastic gig bag, with slight changes to match the design of the A10 series.
