USED Flight Carabao All Solid Spruce/Mango Guitalele SUS EXCLUSIVE
Please note that this second hand Flight Guitalele is for sale to UK based customers only.
About a year ago, Flight took their first serious step into the guitalele world with the GUT850. The guitalele in question is a baritone size tiny guitar tuned either E to E or A to A and it absolutely blew us all away here at SUS... We've come to realise that often the best guitaleles come from ukulele manufacturers as they remain, sweet, smooth and balanced in build quality.
That's why we asked them to create an exclusive range just for us. Using the same body as Flight's carabao and aurora baritone ukuleles, this guitalele has a solid spruce top and solid mango back and sides. It absolutely sings with crisp highs and a warm, pronounced low end. It never sounds muddy like so many other guitaleles do.
Our carabao line of instruments came about from Alex at SUS's love for mango ukuleles and successful signature ukuleles with Big Island and Kanile'a. The carabao series has taken on a life of its own receiving high praise from independent review sites. The combination of spruce and mango makes for a deep, complex sounding instrument with plenty of volume. Mango has a unique look too meaning each instrument is special in its own way.
This used model is in fantastic condition with only very light playwear that is hardly noticeable. It has also been fitted with after market strap buttons on both the bottom bout and heel joint (by us at SUS) upon its original purchase.
The strings fitted are folk style classical guitar strings with silver basses and nylon trebles.
