Flight DUC450 Mango Concert Ukulele is crafted from laminated mango wood. Mango trees are more widely known for their fruit, but they also produce beautiful and valuable lumber. The wood is considered very environmentally friendly, as the trees are harvested for lumber by some mango plantations after they have completed their fruit-bearing lives. As with mahogany, mango also has a similar density so that if used properly, it can sound even sweeter and warmer than koa. The DUC450 has a neck and fingerboard made of African okoume and Walnut. You can rest assured that with this combination, your fretboard will be in tone across the fretboard, it is easy on your hands, and it is also stunning.
Despite its small size, the nut of an instrument plays a crucial role in its sound. In contrast to most other guitars, the DUC450’s nut and saddle made from bone, not from plastic. The exquisite details on this ukulele only add to its uniqueness. The Flight ukulele’s headstock is equipped with geared tuners to ensure it stays in tune. In addition to being lightweight and stylish, Flight gig bags offer excellent protection for your uke and will not only help you stay organized but will also turn heads.
