Lively Ukulele Voice
The Luna High Tide Tenor features a body crafted entirely with ovangkol. A beautiful tonewood with a distinctive tone and grain pattern. Ovangkol is known for producing a unique character that's warm and well-rounded. In addition, ovangkol is an African relative of rosewood, which means it shares many of the same tonal properties. With the warm, bright sizzling-sparkle of rosewood and the stunning trebles and highs of maple, ovangkol produces an ideal sound for achieving a traditional, lively, and rich ukulele tone. Perfect for picking and jangly chords, the High Tide is ready for aspiring and advanced players.
Comfortable C-Shaped Neck
Constructed from mahogany, the High Tide's neck offers a quick and dynamic response with added warmth and resonance. Mahogany's nature allows it to respond superbly to your individual playing style, enabling you to achieve your desired response and tone. Additionally, the High Tide's C-shaped neck profile offers comfort throughout each position up and down the neck. The C-profile also offers a secure grip and prevents the likeliness of a cramping hand throughout long practice sessions.
Furthermore, the neck is topped with a walnut fingerboard, offering a smooth playing experience whilst enhancing the Ukulele's overall tone with a warm, earthy character and added clarity. Lastly, the fingerboard is graced with stunning rising wave markers inlaid with abalone. These rising wave inlays embody Luna's philosophy beautifully whilst keeping with the 'High Tide' design. A truly eye-catching design for players with a truly unique Luna vibe.
Richer, Louder Ukulele Sound
Larger and more curved than the standard soprano size uke, the High Tide's tenor profile offers a louder, richer, and more balanced tone. The blend of a tenor shape and ovangkol body adds warmth and definition to the instruments overall sound. Its tenor shape also provides a comfortable playing experience thanks to its size and Venetian cutaway profile. Additionally, its cutaway profile offers comfort whilst providing easy access to upper frets. Venetian cutaways are renowned for their smooth lines and sleek curves whilst offering freedom in each position up and down the fingerboard. Furthermore, the High Tide's larger body has become favoured among ukulele players for its resonant tone and deeper, louder sound. Get creative and join the Luna Tribe today.

Inspired by the full moon and its natural gravitational pull on the ocean. The aptly named High Tide Tenor Ukulele offers a truly breath-taking look that embodies Luna's philosophy beautifully. At first glance, you can see eye-catching abalone inlays that represent the ocean and its gorgeous sparkle. Abalone can be seen adorning the soundhole whilst a full moon sticker can just be seen hiding inside the soundhole. Additionally, abalone rising wave inlays grace the fingerboard and work their way up to a full moon (first fret). These stunning wave inlays 'rise' towards to moon's natural pull, resulting in the name 'High Tide'. A truly beautiful instrument, designed and inspired by nature itself - it can only be Luna.
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.
