Fluke Ukulele
The original design that started it all back in 1999. Created by Dale Webb, this non-traditional take on the ukulele features a unique composite construction of wood and injection molded thermoplastic. The combination of wood soundboard and acoustically resonant thermoplastic body, yields a musical instrument with full, bright tonal qualities, is comfortable to hold, tremendously durable, and stands up on its end! It's everyone's favorite - great for travel, adventure, or music class.

The concert FLUKE has a 15.5" scale length, 15 frets and overall length of 23 inches. Weight is around one pound depending on materials and options. Necks are solid maple or walnut. Standard laminate tops are hoop pine (printed or colored tops) or natural walnut. Optional solid wood tops include Adirondack red spruce or koa. Bodies are injection molded thermoplastic. Standard fretboard is molded polycarbonate, hardwood is optional.
The tenor FLUKE has the same body size with a 17" scale and overall length of 24.5". Like the concert, the tenor easily accommodates GCEA tuning but can also handle the lower DGBE tuning (high D).
Both sizes can be ordered in a variety of colors and designs as well as with pickup options. If you don't see the exact color/design combination you are looking for, please ask - not every combination is listed. All Fluke models come standard with D'Addario Nyltech strings.
Over 27,000 made, proudly in the USA.

5 of 5 Absolute perfection! July 17, 2021
Reviewer: Linda from Vermont  
I'm so glad I decided on the Koa fluke as a personal birthday gift which I received 6 weeks ago. The attention to detail, harmonics up the neck, ease of play, overall look and feel is perfect! I really like the upgraded tuners. I specifically wanted my newest uke addition to be made in the USA and couldn't have made a better decision. If you can't tell, I highly recommend!

5 of 5 Koa Fluke April 28, 2019
Reviewer: Cliff from Keene, NH  
Bought this from Acoustic Strings in Keene, NH, and it is great. A beautiful instrument with wonderful attention to detail. Looks, plays, and sounds as well or better than ukuleles costing many times more (if you're interested in Koa). And it really holds its harmonics going up the neck. That, to me, is the ultimate litmus test for any fretted instrument.

5 of 5 Spruce Fluke December 24, 2018
Reviewer: Ritesh S from Saratoga, CA  
I was always curious about the solid top Flukes and luckily for Christmas, my local store Gryphon Strings stocked up on Solid top flukes and fleas. For those wondering, yes the solid tops have more oomph and are worth the upgrade (it does mean you need to mind the humidity but that was not an issue for me). I got a spruce tenor fluke and am very happy with the tone, volume, dynamic range. Needless to say all Magic Fluke instruments have amazing quality! I have owned Fluke n Flea (normal top) as well as the cricket.

5 of 5 Awesome uke! March 7, 2018
Reviewer: Steve from Virginia, USA  
I just received a solid koa concert Fluke, and it exceeds my expectations. It sounds beautiful, and the intonation is perfect. The folks at Magic Fluke take great pride in their work, and it shows.

5 of 5 Cannot go wrong December 23, 2015
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^)
