The biggest improvement across the board on all our Fluke and Flea ukuleles is the development of a new bridge that’s been in the works for the past year. This innovative new design guarantees never to lift or come off the top, fits all string gauges with no modifications, and includes a Graphtech Nubone adjustable saddle.
This unique design incorporates a flange that clips under the top toward the base of the instrument. Under string tension, the torque acting on the bridge pulls the top of the bridge down while the flange extension pushes up below the bridge supporting it from the inside. Its locked in place, held tight to the top without relying on any glue or fasteners. This eliminates one of the weakest and most vulnerable joints common to any stringed instrument with a traditional glued on bridge. Injection molded in our custom glass fiber reinforced ABS polymer, its designed to be light weight and stiff for good sound transmission, as well as super strong and stable.
