Koa Top & Mahogany Body

The Bari-Bass Fretless features a koa top and mahogany back and sides, which offers a focused mid-range blended with a dark rich-warmth. The koa top delivers an extremely bright tone, however through playing the wood will warm up and produce a richer, sweeter, more resonant tone, the more you play, the better the sound. This stunning tonewood 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.

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 rosewood fingerboard is complemented by abalone dot inlays, which provide an element of sophistication and class to this truly beautiful baritone uke.

Fretless Fingerboard

The Bari-Bass offers a fretless alternative to standard fingerboard, providing pitch freedom, and a sonically pleasing experience. Fretless instruments sound different, sliding on the neck makes a wonderful wah sound, because it is real sound from a real string, with no frets to interfere with the tone produced. The Bari-Bass Fretless is ideal for the adventurous-advanced player because it is more challenging to play than fretted instruments. The rewards are great, delivering distinctive sound and more pitch flexibility.

Baritone Ukulele Body

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 ukulele family, and is even used in genres such as Jazz. Some of the greatest Jazz players favour the baritone size 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 Fretless is a well-crafted, beautifully designed baritone ukulele which offers a stunning appearance to match its tone. Players can enjoy the solid koa top with stunning natural grain patterns, which project Luna's love for nature perfectly. Complementing the natural satin finish and koa top is a simplistic sound-hole rosette, inlaid in abalone with matching abalone dot fingerboard markers. The abalone inlays provide a touch of Luna's creativity and will make any live performance sparkle.

Fishman Clasica II Preamp

The Bari-Bass Fretless 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.
