Koa is the tropical hardwood of choice for many traditional luthiers. Our solid koa soundboards provide a more lively and bright acoustic sound, as well as a beautiful figured grain aesthetic.

Flea Ukulele
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 stand up on its end as well. Known for its easy play-ability 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 setup is ideal for class or travel, weighing in at about one pound. Available in Soprano or Concert size.
Solid maple or walnut neck; laminate top of either hoop pine or walnut; solid top of either spruce or koa. Injection molded thermoplastic body, and polycarbonate or hardwood fretboard (standard with koa and spruce). All sizes can be ordered in a variety of colors and designs as well as with pickup options. Fleas come standard with D'Addario Nyltech strings.

Reviewer: Chris W. from Victoria, BC  
My daughter needed a ukulele for music class at school, so I ordered a soprano Flea for her and, while I was at it, a concert Fluke for me - natural finish, no fancy options.  Both are superb instruments.  Intonation, action, fit and finish... everything is perfect.

The smaller body of the Flea suits my daughter well, but I enjoy the bigger, more resonant tone of the Fluke - the difference is definitely noticeable.  I have put some Worth strings on the Fluke (clear, hard, low-g) and they sound absolutely fantastic.  The only bad thing I have to say about the Fluke is that now my Firefly isn't getting all the attention it used to.  8^)
