"Well Done Luna Guitars, Well Done!"

Once in awhile you run into something you weren't expecting much from and come away pleasantly surprised. Well, I can say that about this Luna Bamboo guitar. I've always been intrigued by the designs of Luna Guitars but had never actually played one. I happened to stumble across the Bamboo Dreadnought when I was browsing through zZounds website. This was my 1st introduction to a Bamboo guitar as I've never thought to look for one before. As a player/collector, I own over 50 acoustic guitars from low priced Orangewood and Lag to high end Martin and Gibson, I'm always looking for something different and unique.Well, I went ahead and made the purchase of this guitar, having never played it and without seeing any personal reviews of quality/sound. Upon unboxing, I was very pleased with the simple elegance of this deisgn. It's a natural finish, very light with no fancy inlays or binding which keeps the price point where it's at. But that is not a bad thing at all. The etched leaf design looks like it was burnt-in which to me makes the appearance very classy. The bamboo material is laminate, but the quality of the top/back/sides was flawless. I'm a big fan of open pore designs, and this one didn't disappoint. I tuned it up, the neck was near perfect but I did do a slight adjustment. The action was almost perfect for my liking but I might lower a tad once I wear out the strings. The sound is absolutely wonderful for a guitar at this price point! I wouldn't have thought a laminate Bamboo guitar could produce the deep and rich tones that this guitar spits out. After an hour of play, the guitar was still pretty much in tune, a very slight adjustment on a few strings was needed.All in all, I'm very pleased with the purchase of this guitar. There are no frills about it, no gloss shine and no fancy inlays. There is also no gig bag or case included which might be a reason for some to look past this model. But I don't buy a guitar for a case which can overstate the value.I highly recommend this guitar to anyone from the beginner to superstar live performer. You have a winner here Luna Guitars, well done!
