Flight Concert Ukulele Spirit Electric Pickup
A wild Spirit that belongs in the wilderness and can’t be tamed. Mustang’s younger brother, Spirit, is a Concert-sized, all solid acacia ukulele from Flight Ukulele.
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.
Tradition meets innovation
Acacia is a wood that has a long heritage in ukulele building for its punch, volume and tone. For the Royal series we chose only the highest-grade acacia which sounds as stunning as it looks. Beautiful natural finish brings out the best of the acacia grain. We especially love the ones that have a white stripe running in the middle.
Rosewood fretboard and bridge
In 2020, previous CITIES restrictions on the use of exotic woods were modified to allow their use in music instruments, so all new Spirit ukuleles include a rosewood fretboard and bridge.
Before Mid-2020, Spirit ukuleles featured a tech ebony fretboard, and some dealers still have those models in stock.
The string-through bridge is one of the latest ukulele trends. It makes the top resonate better, due to strings being attached directly through the top soundboard, and not to the bridge. Changing the strings might seem a bit confusing at first, but actually it is easier and we are going to upload a tutorial on our YouTube channel really soon. D’Addario strings have recently been rising in popularity and after lots of tests we decided to feature them on our Royal series.
The scalloped cutaway was a real hit in our Victoria ukulele and it was a no brainer to repeat it in Mustang and Spirit. This intelligent design allows for playing up the frets but without the compromise on volume and tone that many full cutaways inflict. It also showcases the absolute craftsmanship and mastery of our luthier.
Unique side sound port
Why let everyone else hear how wonderful your ukulele sounds and not gain the benefit yourself? At Flight we realized that you can hear the full tone and volume of our ukuleles by introducing a sound port at the top of the instrument. We also feel it contributes to the quality of the sound as a whole. Some people aren’t a fan of the appearance of a side sound port which is why we have created an intricate design that gives you all the benefits of a normal sound port while maintaining a solid appearance to the structure.
Invincible yet mighty
Double C1U active pickup
Through mid-2020, Spirit models featured a passive Artec pickup. Some vendors still have these models in stock.
In mid-2020 Flight moved to using Double C1U active pickups on the Spirit. The controls for the active pickup are mounted underneath the sound hole, meaning that a cavity does not have to be created on the side of the ukulele for the pickup. Most importantly, they sound great! Ukuleles with the new active pickups include an “A” (for “Active”) as a part of their model number.
A Fresh, New Look.
Bold and striking
We wanted our new headstock to be bold and striking, infusing innovation into all the benefits of a slotted headstock. Its round, airy shape not only looks amazing, it also makes the headstock lighter than most. You will certainly be turning heads with this one.
Only the best gig bag
While our signature beige color gig bags have become legendary, we wanted to do something special for this series, which is why we decided to use a Burgundy Red with a purple infusion on this luxury gig bag. Associated with royalty, this regal color adds a final touch to our Royal Series. 20mm padding is thick and ensures good protection for your uke.
