Spruce Top & Mahogany Body

The Luna Bari-Bass features a stunning spruce top that offers bright attack, broad dynamic range, and crisp articulation. Spruce is the most commonly used wood for guitar tops as it generates a dynamic tonal pallet and accommodates numerous playing techniques. The wood itself is quite elastic in nature, which resonates well whilst remaining strong, and provides a focused, clear sound of deep lows, warm midi-range, and bright singing highs. The spruce top is balanced out well by the mahogany back and sides, as mahogany is denser and produces a richer tone, with emphasised warmth in the mid and low ranges. Mahogany is used a lot in the acoustic world because, it is relatively economical, durable, attractive, easy to work with, and resonant. Overall you receive a dark, rich, well-balanced Luna Bari-Bass uke.

Mahogany Neck Topped With Rosewood Fingerboard

The neck features a set neck construction in a C shape to provide a comfortable playing experience. The mahogany neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that offers a bright, warm, rich-darkness that really shines through when playing picking styles. The Bari-Bass neck is made from mahogany because the wood responds greatly to picking, strumming, and various finger techniques with equal ease. The Bari-Bass is finished in classic black with shark tooth inspired fingerboard markers to add an edgy touch to its sleek finish.

Baritone Ukulele

The Bari-Bass features the baritone size body shape, which offers great bass-uke tone and a comfortable playing experience. The baritone ukulele is the biggest member of the uke family, and is even used in genres such as Jazz. Some of the greatest Jazz players favour the bari-bass because of its big frets that allow players to squeeze chords up the neck to achieve great Jazz bass tone. Baritone tuning is usually G-C-E-A, and is exclusively strung with a low top string. The Bari-Bass is ideal for those bass/guitar players wanting a more compact size.

The Luna Look

The Bari-Bass is a beautifully designed Luna instrument which is finished with precise attention to detail, and offers a stunning edgy look in a baritone body. The Bari-Bass features Luna's signature crescent moon brand logo, which complements its stunning classic black finish. Other ornate details include, simplistic sound-hole rosette, sleek open gear tuners in black, and shark tooth fingerboard markers.

Fishman Clasica II Preamp

The Bari-Bass comes equipped with an on-board Fishman preamp and tuning system, offering a stage ready baritone uke ideal for the gigging musician. The Clasica was optimised specifically for nylon string instruments, offering a range of features in compact design. The Fishman Clasica system comes with a pre-wired Sonicore pickup for a solder-free installation. The sophisticated system offers quick and easy tuning via its LED easy-read screen. Features include: bass, treble, phase, and volume controls.

Luna History

Yvonne Villiers is an accomplished stained-glass artist who envisioned Luna guitars. Her inspiration for a line of guitars designed to maximise playing comfort came from her mother, Hilda Villiers, a bassist for over 40 years. Whilst watching her mum on stage, Yvonne couldn't help but notice the massive struggle her mum had whilst playing. With her mum being petite and using such a heavy instrument, she used to complain of how hard it was to be a woman and try to play these big bass guitars. Yvonne then questioned if there were others like her mum that struggled with the same problems and pains. She came up with the idea of a woman specific guitar, uniquely tailored to fit their bodies, their hands, and their musical styles.

Yvonne moved on to created Luna guitars, a line of guitars made for female musicians of all ages and crafted with luminous visual beauty to engage women's minds and spirits along with their talent. Yvonne already had brilliant artistic skills and use of colour, she then applied the same techniques as she did with her award winning stained glass work to her new line of guitars. She is known for using rich colours that shimmer and shine with every movement providing an eye-catching design along with the great musical tones Luna guitars deliver. Yvonne's design expertise has led so many men to respond to Luna's well-crafted, spirit-engaging instruments that the company now creates guitars for both female and male musicians of all ages.
