Thread: Fleas

  1. #1

    Default Fleas

    I just wanted to ask a kinda random question that's been on my mind. Are Flea ukuleles waterproof?

    Not immersible waterproof. But okay to sweat on or get caught in the rain playing it waterproof. Of course, you'll want to dry it off afterwards.

    And that's only the ones with the plastic fretboard. Remember, the soundboard on a Flea is wood, as is the neck.

    Bottom line: don't plan on storing your Flea in the aquarium or swimming pool. But it's great for taking to the beach.

    Darn. I was hoping to get one so I can play it while I swim in the pool.

    Still lusting after a Lava Flea and someday, a tenor, maybe?

    Go to Toys R Us or ebay and get an all plastic uke. Then put on a better bridge, saddle, nut, tuners and strings. Then lounge in the pool with it. Just an idea.

    Sounds like a specific question.

    Their shape makes them a decent emergency canoe paddle.

    My big concern is: what have you already done to it that you're hoping isn't permanent?
