Warm and Lively Sound
The Luna Ukulele Tattoo features an all-mahogany build, resulting in a warm and lively ukulele tone. Mahogany produces plenty of treble tones and rich, resonant warmth. Additionally, the mahogany body offers more volume, and a strong balance between high-end and bass, which enables this instrument to maintain a classic ukulele tone. Mahogany is used a lot in the acoustic world, because it is relatively economical, durable, attractive, and offers a familiar warm tonality.
A unique shape with great sound and comfort. The Luna Ukulele Tattoo features a pineapple body in a comfortable soprano size. Its soprano size makes it ideal for beginners and novice players thanks to its smaller size and easy playability. The pineapple body also offers a striking visual appeal whilst delivering a pleasing warmth with a rich sound quality - bringing you a traditional Hawaiian sound with a modern twist. Furthermore, the Luna Ukulele is lightweight and easy to carry, ideal for practising anywhere, whether travelling, going to the beach, or just jamming with friends. Beginner or a seasoned pro, the Luna Ukulele Tattoo is an instrument that can be enjoyed by anyone, anywhere.
Comfortable Neck & Walnut Fingerboard
Constructed from mahogany, the Tattoo'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 Tattoo'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.
The Luna Look
The Luna Tattoo Pineapple takes its inspiration from traditional Hawaiian body ornamentation, these patterns consist of strong geometric shapes that represent the Natural Island World. Luna's Tattoo series are all based on the Natural Island World, spiritual meanings, and the geometric shapes that are inspired by stones, fish, waves, sharks, turtles, rain, sun, and birds. Finished in satin natural, with mother of pearl shark teeth inlays, and beautiful pearloid tuners, the Tattoo Pineapple has a nature-loving vibe with a look that's certain to stand out.
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 creating 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 that Luna guitars deliver. Yvonne's design expertise has led to many men responding positively to Luna's well-crafted, spirit-engaging instruments that the company now creates guitars for both female and male musicians of all ages.
