Acacia is a wood that has a long heritage in ukulele building for its punch, volume and tone. For the Royal series Flight chose only the highest-grade acacia which sounds as stunning as it looks. Mustang has a reddish shade due to a special wiping technique, giving it an even more striking look.
Flight likes to try and test the latest ideas in instrument building. This has resulted in an acacia fretboard on the Mustang ukulele. The sound of a ukulele depends as much on the woods in its neck and fretboard as the body. The added bonus is that the appearance of the fretboard adds to the wild, uninhibited appearance of the Mustang. To spice it up even further, Flight decided to add offset fretboard markers, located not in the middle of the fret, but on the side.
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. D'Addario strings have recently been rising in popularity and after lots of tests Flight decided to feature them on the Royal series.
The scalloped cutaway was a real hit in the 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 Flight's luthier.
Why let everyone else hear how wonderful your ukulele sounds and not gain the benefit yourself? Flight realizes that you can hear the full tone and volume of ukes by introducing a sound hole at the top of the instrument. They 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 hole which is why Flight has created an intricate design that gives you all the benefits of a normal sound hole whilst maintaining a solid appearance to the structure.
Most of serious ukulele brands use passive piezo pickup, which is why for Flight's higher-end models they decided to shift from using EQ system to passive piezo. It makes the ukulele lighter and more balanced, eliminates the unwanted string rattle and provides as a strap button.
Flight wanted their 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.
