The Luna Concert Ukulele features a solid olive ash burl body which not only offers a stunning aesthetic appeal, but produces beautiful ukulele voice. Its olive ash burl body also provides great projection, as well as producing a sweet tonal character that is well suited to ukulele playing styles and techniques.
Constructed from mahogany, the Concert Ukulele's neck offers great durability and resonance. To provide comfort, the neck features a C-shaped profile which prevents the likeliness of a cramping hand. Its smooth playing neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that delivers a warm, bright, sparkly sound that really shines through when using fingerpicking techniques. Rosewood as a fingerboard also offers a smooth and energetic playing experience, and to provide this as well as a stunning appearance, it is sprinkled with mother of pearl moon phase inlays.
The Concert Olive Ash Burl features a concert body shape, which produces rich and clear sound suitable for numerous techniques and styles of play. With 18 frets, it has become the choice of preference for ukulele soloists due to its extended range. The concert shape enables players to perform more technical skills, whilst maintaining classic ukulele tone. In addition, the concert shape is slightly larger than standard soprano size and provides more volume due to more room for sound to vibrate around the body.
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.
