This Mango colored North American Birch top Fluke has a bright and clear sound with lots of punch. It features a rock Hard Maple neck with a Polycarbonate fret board. This was built for a player and studio musician. We ordered this instrument optionless (our own word). It’s sound chamber, and after all this is what it is all about, is built with the exact same materials as the fanciest Flukes. It is stunning, just cost less. It comes with a protective case worthy of the finest sleeping bag, as all wonderful instruments should. OK maybe we exaggerated a bit on the case, but it’s very nice!
The price of this instrument will allow you to treat yourself musically well. There are no “imported” brands that come close to this Fluke in quality, sound, and what the sellers of the imported instruments never talk about: playability. This fluke is smooth.
Listen to a Fluke in action. Caution the video is a little risky. Maybe a lot risky.
Storage and Environmental– Reasonable changes in temperature and humidity should not affect the instrument. Storage in a temperature/humidity-controlled environment is not necessary as long as extremes are avoided. Prolonged exposure to sunlight may fade some top finishes.
Cleaning –Use damp cloth with mild soap if necessary. General-purpose guitar polishes and cleaners are compatible. Most tops are finished with a water borne lacquer, some printed tops are polyurethane. Necks are finished with a tinted, catalyzed nitrocellulose lacquer.
Bottom line: It’s a player’s instrument, not temperamental. When cleaning and storing, anything short of the local car wash and refrigerator will be fine.
This part is beautiful.
We know where it was made, by whom and yes, if your favorite instrument someday becomes in need of repair, we have the phone number and address of it’s doctor. After all, no musician will ever consider their musical soulmate a throw away.
