Designed in stunning laminate mango, the Flight DUS450 Soprano Ukulele boasts a wide range of features. Although Mango trees are widely known for their fruits, they can also be used for lumber. Some Mango plantations harvest the trees after they have stopped bearing fruit for lumber, which makes the wood very environmentally friendly. Mahogany and mango have the same density, and mango if used correctly sounds even sweeter than koa. The DUS450 features an African okoume neck and a Walnut fingerboard. Besides being gentle to your hands, this combination ensures stable intonation across the fretboard.
Even though nuts may seem minor, it has a huge impact on the quality of sound an instrument produces. Bone is used for the nut and saddle of the DUS450 instead of plastic. The exquisite details on this ukulele only add to its uniqueness. With geared tuners built into the headstock of all Flight ukes, you can always be certain that they are in tune. Flight gig bags have already become legendary for their lightness and excellent protection as well as their style. With one of these on your shoulder, you will surely turn heads.
