The Luna Flamed Acacia Ukulele features an acacia top, which produces a sonically pleasing warmth with a deep woody tonality. Its acacia top also offers visually striking appearance, as its natural grain pattern has a stunning ripple to its grain, offering both stunning aesthetics and a great tone that is well-suited to numerous playing styles. In addition, its beautiful flamed acacia top is paired with mahogany back and sides, offering great volume and projection, as well as resonance and warmth. Furthermore, its mahogany back and sides enable the Luna Tenor Uke to retain a classic ukulele tone, producing a focused sound with a punchy mid-range.
Constructed from mahogany, the Luna'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 neck, 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 which adds balance, and a pleasing earthy warmth to the ukulele's overall tone. In addition, the walnut fingerboard is sprinkled with pearl dot inlays for added elegance.
The Luna Flamed Acacia features a tenor body, which is larger and more curvaceous than the standard sized soprano ukes. With its tenor body, the Luna Flamed Acacia produces a rich, well-balanced tone that is well-suited to a wide range of playing styles and techniques. The combination of tonewoods and tenor body provide this Luna Ukulele with warmth and definition, as well as a deep, full, and resonant tone. Furthermore, the tenor size also offers a comfortable playing experience and its larger body has become favourable among uke players for its rich and clear tone with great volume and projection.
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.
