Body Tonewoods

The Gypsy Quilted Ash is crafted with a laminated spruce top, which yields a crisp and articulate tone, as well as delivering a broad dynamic range. The laminated spruce top is less susceptible to warping over time than solid woods, and is finished with a beautiful trans blue quilt ash graphic. Its spruce top is paired with mahogany back and sides because it is relatively economical, durable, attractive, easy to work with, and resonant. Additionally, its mahogany back and sides produce a rich, resonant warmth with mid-range emphasis and a punchy, woody tonal character.

Mahogany Neck

Constructed from mahogany, the Luna Gypsy's neck adds a rich, resonant warmth to the overall tone and also responds greatly to numerous techniques and styles of play with equal ease. The neck features a C-shaped profile , which offers players a comfortable and secure grip, reducing the likeliness of a cramping hand. The neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that adds a pleasing sonic warmth to the overall sound. Additionally, the rosewood fingerboard offers a smooth and energetic playing experience and is sprinkled with Luna's exclusive mother of pearl moon phase inlays.

Grand Auditorium Body

The Gypsy Quilted Ash features a grand auditorium cutaway body, offering a comfortable playing experience and a well-balanced sound. Its sonically versatile body is well-suited to those players who like to record, write, or perform, as it delivers a well-rounded sound, and is extremely comfortable to sit with for long periods of time. The Gypsy's grand auditorium size provides players with extra projection, extra bass, as well as mid-range tones that smaller bodied guitars struggle to deliver.

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.
