Flight Ukuleles is celebrating its tenth anniversary! Flight has decided to celebrate its tenth anniversary by releasing four amazing tenor ukuleles. While Flight is known for making high quality, affordably ukuleles, these anniversary models represent a new frontier for the company—solid wood ukuleles individually crafted by a master luthier, with a level of craftsmanship, playability, and sound rivaling the finest ukuleles on the planet.
The soundboard pf the A10 SC Cocobolo Dragon 10th Anniversary Tenor Ukulele is made from top grade solid Engelmann Spruce, which produces an open sound with great response. The back and sides of the ukulele are made from cocobolo, beautiful tropical hardwood with a bright tone but with deep resonation. The combination is both visually stunning and audibly pleasing. Each ukulele in our A10 series is handcrafted by a single master luthier.
An enchanted neck and fingerboard
Mahogany neck & ebony fingerboard with dragon inlay
The neck of the Flight A10 SC Cocobolo Dragon Tenor Ukulele is made of mahogany, so it is very stable and resistant to warping.The fretboard is made of ebony, which is thought to be the finest hardwood for a fingerboard. Ebony gives a clear, crisp attack and offers a slick and fast playing experience. The centerpiece of the neck of the instrument is the dragon inlay, which is the symbol of Ljubljana, Slovenia, the home of Flight Ukulele.
Bone compensated saddle and pin bridge
The A10 Series features an ebony bridge (matching the fretboard), as well as a real bone nut and a compensated saddle. Compensated saddles help to properly set the intonation of each string. The A10 series uses a pin bridge system, which helps keep the strings properly aligned on the ukulele, as well as to create a break angle over the saddle that transfers vibrations efficiently to the soundboard of the ukulele.
The appointments matter
Rosette, binding, and purfling
The A10 SC Cocobolo Dragon Tenor Ukulele features a redwood rosette with a special Roman number “X” to represent the 10th anniversary. In addition, the ukulele sports gorgeous black binding highlighted by a stripe of purfling. Absolutely magnificent!
A twist on our headstock design
Special anniversary headstock
To celebrate our 10th anniversary, we wanted to feature ukuleles with a different headstock, so while the A10 models feature some similarity to our Royal Series, we have adapted the anniversary models with a special twist to make them unique and special.
Incredible gig bag included
Anniversary gig bag
In addition to selling great ukuleles at incredible prices, Flight Ukulele is known for including a gig bag with every ukulele. Our deluxe gig bag is one of the very best gig bags on the market.
