Grand Auditorium Shape

The Fauna Phoenix features a grand auditorium body shape with a cutaway design, and is built to deliver a well-rounded sound. The shape is perfect for those who like to write, record, or perform because of its extremely comfortable playability, and good quality well-balanced tone. The auditorium size allows players to get a bigger sound projection, extra bass, and mid-range tones that smaller bodied guitars just can't deliver. If you're looking for a guitar that is bigger than a tenor body, with standard fret scale, and a bit more in the bass section, then the Luna Fauna Phoenix is perfect for you.

Body Tonewoods

The Fauna Phoenix is crafted from a range of carefully selected tonewoods including a spruce top, a mahogany neck, mahogany back and sides, and rosewood fingerboard. The Phoenix has a focused, clear tone and delivers warmth, bright attack, and a very usable, dynamic palette perfect for many playing styles. Mahogany is used a lot in the acoustic world because it is relatively economical, durable, attractive, easy to work with, and resonant. Mahogany contains distinct character of a soft warmth, but is well balanced with a bite of its own. The organic nature of the wood makes each Luna guitar uniquely different, you will find each guitar has a slightly unique tone to one another, this has become signature of Luna guitars.

Mahogany Neck

The mahogany neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard, which delivers a warm, bright, and sparkly tone that really shines through when using finger picking techniques. The neck is specially designed by Luna to ensure a comfortable playing experience that puts challenging notes and chords within easy reach. The reason why many guitar necks are made from mahogany is because the wood responds greatly to picking, strumming, and various finger techniques with equal ease. The Fauna Phoenix has a classic black finish, and stunning abalone moon phase fingerboard markers, providing you with a guitar of outstanding Luna beauty.

On-board Preamp & Tuner

The Fauna Phoenix uses an on-board B-Band T35 preamp with built in tuner meaning you can take your Fauna Phoenix to the stage and impress crowds with its gorgeous tonal properties. The preamp is very simple and easy to use, just plug into an amplifier, change your settings to personal preference, and simply play away. The built in tuner allows players to tune their guitars on the go, and quickly re-tune in-between songs on stage.

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.
