Firefly Maple-Hardwood Soprano Banjo Ukulele. Made in the USA by The Magic Fluke Company, already world famous for the innovative design and playability of their Fluke and Flea Ukuleles, the Firefly Banjo Ukulele is the latest addition the family!
The Firefly Banjo Ukulele, like a luminescent lightning bug, is great to have around a campfire, and attracts lots of attention. This marvellous hybrid combines the ease of playing the uke with the distinctive twang of a traditional banjo. The Firefly is lightweight, travels well, and sounds delightful!
This is the Maple soprano version with hardwood fretboard. It's also available in walnut with hardwood or poly-carbonate fretboard if preferred, and there's a concert scale version too!
It has an 8" Renaissance Mylar head and Acousticon pot, factory tuned and assembled by Remo in California, and it comes standard with Grover 2B tuners, maple and ebony bridge and Nyltech strings. The simple open back design is lightweight, requiring no tuning of the head. Action is easily adjustable with shim washers where the dowel stick meets the tailpiece.
The Firefly's design is inspirational. It's simple, elegant and it works!
If you're looking for an affordable lightweight banjolele with a very traditional sound that packs a punch, then look no further!
