Flight TUS40 Granada Travel Soprano Ukulele
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.
This special ukulele is named after the city of Granada, as Its design reflects the captivating Arabic patterns of the Alhambra Palace.
Flight TUS-40 Granada
Soprano Travel Ukulele
Let Your Music Take
Thanks to a wider arched ABS back, this baby has more volume in middle range than your average soprano, while also resonating better and sounding brighter. It is needless to mention the durability and resistance to humidity changes, the main enemies of the wooden ukuleles.
Bright and Funky
The TUS40 uses laminate linden wood for the sound board. Linden is characterized by a bright sound and sleek texture. The Granda features a design inspired by The Ahlambra, in Granada, Spain.
ABS Neck & Fingerboard
The neck and fingerboard 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.
Pitch perfect quality.
Zero fret & ABS Saddle
Zero fret paired with unique bridge construction keeps the string action low and intonation on point. Since the plastic is never going to move, you will never have to deal with any additional work on the saddle.
It all starts with the head.
Good-looking and easy to tune.
Headstock design is an integral part of our identity. The headstock veneer is made of linden to match 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. We 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.
Learn in style.
The ukulele comes with a Flight start-up booklet to help you on the road to future ukulele fame. It is packed with all the necessary information needed for a quick start including chord charts, strumming patterns and tabs for an original song by Elise Ecklund!
We also included a cool sticker pack from Flight.
Every tiny detail matters.
