Players asked, and Luna listened. We are delighted to present the Artist Series...
beautifully appointed instruments featuring a solid back, ebony headstock, fingerboard,
bridge and binding, as well as B-band’s T55 preamp system. The simple and elegant
designs for these instruments were inspired by three international design movements —
Art Nouveau, Arts & Crafts, and Art Deco.
The Arts and Crafts movement flourished between 1860-1910 and started as
a reaction against the styles developed by machine production. Objects were
simple in form, without superfluous decoration - and they tended to emphasize
the qualities of the materials used (“truth to material”). Their patterns were
greatly inspired by flora and fauna.
Luna’s Craftsman guitar has many of the same characteristics as its namesake
movement. Its simple rosette and fret markers were inspired by a classic
‘rose’ design made famous by Dard Hunter, one of the most well-respected
designers of the era. It is crafted of solid spruce, ebony, mahogany and koa -
with mother-of-pearl inlay - for excellence in both form and tonal quality.
