The Firefly Banjo Ukulele, like a luminescent lightning bug, is great to have around a campfire, and attracts lots of attention. This marvelous hybrid combines the ease of playing the uke with the distinctive twang of a traditional banjo. Weighing in at just under one pound, the Firefly is lightweight, travels well, and sounds delightful.
Available in both soprano or concert size, with an 8" Renaissance Mylar head and Acousticon pot, factory tuned and assembled for us by Remo in California. 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 comes standard with: Grover 2B tuners; walnut or maple neck; maple and ebony bridge; polycarbonate molded or hardwood fret board; and Nyltech strings. Maple neck comes standard with ivory colored tuners. The CONCERT FIREFLY has a 15.5" scale, 18 frets, and is available only with hardwood fretboard. Amplification is available with optional passive pickup by Open Source.
