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.

Mahogany Neck Topped With Rosewood Fingerboard

The neck features a set neck construction in a C shape to provide a comfortable playing experience. The Bari-Bass Tattoo neck is made from mahogany because the wood responds greatly to picking, strumming, and various finger techniques with equal ease. 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 rosewood fingerboard also features shark teeth markers inlaid in mother-of-pearl.

Baritone Ukulele Body

The Bari-Bass Tattoo 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 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 instrument.

Fishman Clasica II Preamp

The Bari-Bass Tattoo 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. The sophisticated system offers quick and easy tuning via its LED easy-read screen. Features include: bass, treble, phase, and volume controls.

The Luna Look

The Luna Bari-Bass Tattoo is a well-crafted, beautifully designed baritone uke from Luna, which offers a superb tone to match it's stunning appearance. The spruce top features a laser etched tattoo design, which is based on the waves from the ocean, and shark tooth sound-hole rosette which embodies Luna's love for nature. Complementing the tattoo'd top are some stunning shark teeth fingerboard markers, inlaid in mother-of-pearl to provide a touch of shimmer to an ocean inspired instrument. The headstock has Luna's signature crescent moon brand logo which mightily stands out against the mahogany back drop, finished with black open gear machine heads.

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.
