Flight Ukuleles that Stu Fuchs plays:

Flight Fireball EQ-A Tenor

The Flight Fireball is named after a well-known jet airplane.  The Flight Fireball EQ-A Tenor features a solid mango body with dyed maple appointments, including a rosette, comfort edge, and scalloped cutaway. The mango tree, most popular for its tasty fruit, also serves as a stunning tone wood, both in appearance and sound.  Mango has a sweet sound (pun intended) that is often compared to koa, while offering amazing grain patterns found with no other tone wood.  Check out the amazing Flight Fireball and see how sweet it is to fall in love with it!

Flight Spirit EQ-A Concert

Some of the Spirit’s unique features include an intricately designed top sound hole, scalloped cutaway, offset dots on the rosewood fingerboard, and captivating headstock shape. This ukulele is shaped and neatly packed to harness percussive punch, volume and tone inside this beautiful solid acacia concert ukulele–and it comes with a pickup!  The Spirit is an instrument that will let you fly free without limits.

Flight GUT350 SP/SAP Guitarlele

Featuring six nylon strings on the body of a baritone ukulele, Flight’s GUT350 guitarlele is an exciting instrument for traveling, for those with small hands, and for seasoned ukulele players looking for new ways of extending their musical horizons.
