Introduced in 2002, the Flea is another departure from the classic ukulele form. Created by Dale Webb, the Flea features the same hybrid design as the Fluke: a unique composite construction of wood and injection molded thermoplastic. The combination of wood soundboard and acoustically resonant thermoplastic body gives this instrument an edge over the traditional standard ukes. It has a rich and bright sound, is comfortable to hold, and stands up on its end as well. Over 26,000 made, proudly in the USA.
Known for its easy playability with a full 14″ soprano scale and generous string spacing – a favorite for seasoned players or a perfect first uke. Its durable construction and meticulous set up is ideal for class or travel.
We inspect each and every instrument we ship out for maximum playability. We adjust the action and adjust intonation when needed. If you would like a specific adjustment, just add it to your order notes and we would be happy to adjust to your liking.
