Flight WUS-3 Mahogany Soprano Ukulele


Flight is pleased to announce the return of the WUS-3 soprano ukulele.  The WUS-3 was first introduced as a Hawaiian-made ukulele.  The factory moved back to Japan due to the challenges of the pandemic, and now are making these same wonderful ukuleles in Japan–which also has a rich tradition of quality ukuleles.  The WUS-3 is made from high quality laminate mahogany.  Don’t be fooled by the word “laminate” or the “plain” appearance of the WUS-3.  With its traditional build and Japanese fluorocarbon strings, the sound of the WUS-3 is exceptional: warm, centered, and strong.    In terms of playability, we have used a slightly wider nut (36mm) with a slimmer neck profile for these Flight ukuleles.  In addition to the looks, sound, and playability, the laminate construction also makes the WUS-3 easier to care for than solid ukuleles.  The combination of these features makes these ukuleles a joy to play and hear.

Centered sound

Mahogany wood

Mahogany is one of the most commonly used woods for musical instruments, whether solid or laminate.  It is a hard wood, but it is not as dense as other hard woods such as rosewood or walnut.  Mahogany produces a sound that is focused, loud, and centered in the mid and lower ranges.  The WUS3 uses laminate mahogany of the highest quality, paired with traditional construction. We have increasingly found that laminate woods gives us a huge amount of control over the sound of an instrument which is why we can create a beautiful sounding ukulele without breaking your bank. You will love how it sounds and plays.

Simple yet complex

Mahogany neck & walnut fingerboard

Don’t let the simple design of the WUS3 fool you into thinking it is a run-of-the-mill laminate ukulele.  The WUS3 is built in a traditional style with a fret board made of attractive pacific walnut.  It has fifteen frets, and the neck has a thin D-shape profile.  Combined with great action, the WUS3 is a joy to play.

Breathing room

Bone nut & walnut bridge

The WUS3 uses a bone nut and saddle to better transmit vibrations to the sound board.  The nut is a tiny piece of the ukulele, but it has an incredible impact on the playability of an instrument.  The WUS3 comes with a slightly larger nut than many Flight ukuleles, measuring in at just over 36mm.  A wider nut makes it easier to play a shorter scale ukulele, such as the case of the WUS3, which is a soprano scale ukulele.  Combined with great action and a wider nut, you will find this ukulele to have more finger room than most soprano ukuleles and even some larger scale ukuleles!

It all starts with the head

Good-looking and easy to tune

Headstock design is an integral part of our identity. All Flight ukuleles feature a carefully-designed headstock fitted with geared tuners that will always hold their tuning.
