View Full Version : Gig bag for Fluke?

I'm having a Fluke custom-painted at the moment, and I'd like to find a side-zip gig bag that will fit it. The Fluke bags are nifty looking but I don't like how they cinch at the top and you have to pull the whole instrument out. I often get the strings, tuners, etc. caught on the opening on the way out.

Does anyone have a side-zip concert-size bag that fits their Fluke? If so I'd love to know what kind you have!

A concert Fluke should fit in the Flea Bag (with the zipper on the side).

Really? I thought being 4 inches longer, and wider at the bottom, would make it a tight fit.

The concert Fluke is only half an inch longer than the concert Flea. You're probably comparing the soprano Flea to the tenor Fluke. There's a little wiggle room in the Flea Bag. I'd ask FMM for a second opinion to be on the safe side, though.

What about those Gator cases they make for Flukes? They're very cool I reckon!

If you are having a uke custom painted, I think you need to upgrade from bag, to case. I would go with one of the fluke cases to better protect your baby. :D

Okay, thank you. :-) I've been leaning towards that decision anyway and you guys have helped me make it. Mahalo
