New Toys: Luna Guitars Fauna Phoenix Acoustic

Luna Guitars just came out with the Fauna Phoenix Acoustic-Electric Black. The glossy jet-black finish accents the beautiful “soaring bird” of inlaid abalone; the bird arches powerfully across the upper bout of this cutaway folk-style instrument.

Sparkling abalone is also used for the crescent moon around the sound hole and there are various phases of the moon inlays up and down the fret board, all capped by Luna’s signature logo on the headstock. The Fauna Phoenix will dazzle your audience with the spirit of this ancient mythological symbol of rebirth.

The Fauna Phoenix uses select spruce for the top and mahogany for the back and sides, a mahogany C-shaped neck, and dual-action truss rod. The neck has a classic 25½-inch scale and a 20-fret pau ferro fretboard with a 12-inch radius. There is a piezo-electric bridge, a GraphTech NuBone nut and a Fishman Presys II pre-amp with volume, bass and treble controls, and built-in electronic tuner.

The Luna Guitars Fauna  Phoenix sells for $699 MAP.
