The Luna Bamboo Uke features a body crafted entirely from bamboo, creating an aesthetically pleasing natural appearance that will capture audiences. The bamboo’s great tonal qualities accommodate numerous genres and playing styles with ease, perfect for versatile players. Its all-bamboo construction produces a well-balanced yet full-bodied tone, with a sweet and unique character. Bamboo is also a sustainable tonewood, offering an environmentally friendly construction for the players with an earth-loving vibe.
Constructed from mahogany, this Luna Ukulele's neck produces warmth, resonance, and has a natural ability to respond superbly well to numerous techniques and playing styles. Additionally, its neck features Luna's especially designed C shaped profile, providing a comfortable playing experience throughout every position up and down the neck, as well as preventing the likeliness of a cramping hand. Its smooth playing neck is topped with a walnut fingerboard, adding plenty of balance, and a pleasing earthy warmth to the overall tone. In addition, the walnut fingerboard is sprinkled with pearl dot inlays for added elegance.
The concert ukulele size is slightly larger than the classic soprano, making it more manageable for larger fingered players. Creating a more melodic, deeper and fuller sound, it makes it ideal for concert playing as they have good projection. The longer scale length makes the notes carry for longer and with its extra comfort, it is often a preferred choice for ukulele beginners.
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.
