Luna Moonbird Acoustic-Electric Banjo, 6-String

Easily transition from guitar to banjo, and make a statement doing it. The Luna Moonbird is a 6-string banjo featuring beautiful "moon and stars" artwork.
Carpe Noctem! Seize the night with the new Moonbird series by Luna. These bluegrass style instruments are inspired by the harmony between the moon and stars. Capturing the beauty of the Moonbird flying in the night sky.

This Moonbird 6-String Banjo has the standard 25-1/2" scale of a guitar, with the traditional resonator of a banjo. While its design is geared towards modern jams, the attack produced by the transparent head will whisk you back to pickin' on grandpa's porch. For the experimentalists, use a standard EADGBE tuning for a uniquely accented guitar tone, or open tuning for punctuated resonant drones. Case sold separately.

Im 50. Ive wanted a banjo since I was a little girl watching hee haw. I took up guitar, flute and piano though. Then...I got sick with Neuro Lyme and it caused significant damage to my brain. To learn a new instrument is too much for me. This is perfect! Play like guitar and banjo sound! Great tone! Heavy duty and beautiful! I will be a Luna customer forever!
