The Luna Fauna Dragonfly features a striking quilt maple top, which not only offers a stunning aesthetic, but delivers great tonal properties that are ideal for a wide range of genres. With a quilt maple top and maple back and sides, the Fauna Dragonfly produces bright singing highs, a strong upper mid-range, with good sustain and plenty of bite.
The Fauna Dragonfly comes equipped with a Fishman Isys+ preamp, which provides amplified acoustic sound for live and rehearsal environments. Simply plug-in to an amp or P.A system and listen to your acoustic's natural tonal character come alive through this sophisticated and compact system. The preamp features rotary controls for bass, treble, and volume, as well as a phase button, and the added convenience of a built-in tuner for precise and easy tuning. The built-in tuner also features a bright easy-read LED screen for tuning in the darkest of venues and rehearsal environments.
Constructed from maple, the Fauna Dragonfly's neck offers great sustain and stability. Maple is brightly toned timber and delivers sizzling highs and firm lows. The neck is topped with an rosewood fingerboard which adds warmth and sweetness to the overall tone with an added sparkle that really shines through when playing fingerpicking techniques. Its rosewood fingerboard is sprinkled with signature mother of pearl moon phase inlays for added elegance.
The Fauna Dragonfly features a grand concert body with a Venetian cutaway which provides players with comfort and a well-balanced sound. Its shape offers clarity, as well as its smaller body and nipped-in waist also make it an ideal guitar for the stage or studio. The Luna Fauna Dragonfly is ideal for fingerpicking techniques, folk-inspired genres, as well as being able to accommodate numerous genres and medium-strength strumming patterns with ease. Its small sonic footprint enables overtones to stay in-check and provides players with a focused and articulate sound that is well-suited for the studio and stage performance.
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.
