Solid Spalt Maple Construction

The Concert Ukulele features a solid spalt maple body, which provides an eye-catching and unique appearance as well as an extremely lightweight ukulele. Spalt maple produces a resonant and well-balanced sound that offers good sustain. The Concert Ukulele from Luna offers a unique sound with crystal clear highs and added clarity. The unique nature of this tonewood means each instrument may vary slightly in tone.

Mahogany Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard

Constructed from mahogany, the Concert Ukulele's neck offers great durability and resonance. Many ukulele necks are made from mahogany because the wood responds greatly to picking, strumming, and various finger techniques with equal ease. The neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that delivers a warm, bright, and sparkly sound that really shines through when using finger picking techniques. Its rosewood fingerboard also offers a smooth and energetic playing experience and is sprinkled with Luna's exclusive mother of pearl moon phase inlays for added elegance.

Concert Ukulele Body

The Concert Ukulele features a concert body, which produces rich and clear sound suitable for numerous techniques and styles of play. The Luna Concert has 20 frets and has become the choice of preference for ukulele soloists due to its extended range. The concert shape enables players to perform more technical skills, whilst maintaining classic ukulele tone. In addition, the concert shape is slightly larger than standard soprano size and provides more volume due to more room for sound to vibrate around the body.

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.
