The Luna Safari Tattoo 3/4 Size Travel Guitar takes its design from traditional Hawaiian body ornamentation. Those designs were monochromatic, tattooed in black against brown skin, with strongly geometric patterns, and many shapes and symbols inspired by the natural island world: stones, waves, fish, sharks, turtles, rain, sun, birds. This one features safari theme etchings on a resonant mahogany body and a select mahogany top.
Top Customer Reviews
Some people have been stating that there were intonation problems with the guitar. I had some issues with that myself, but all new guitars and new strings have that problem. I have been playing guitar for about seven years, but only recently found out that stretching out your strings can help fix this issue. There are tons of tutorials on YouTube that show you how to stretch them out. If you're a beginner, don't get frustrated, just work through it logically! (You wouldn't vigorously run/jog without proper stretching!)
Obviously, the sound will not compare to a full sized guitar, but for under $200, this guitar is great! Yes, it lacks a good bass sound, but the overall tone of the guitar is fun sounding and unique. It has a box like quality in terms of projection, and that's ok, because it adds to the appeal of the guitar. Coming in at around three pounds, the guitar is lightweight and VERY portable. The gig bag that comes with it is quite flimsy, so I ended up also purchasing a 15mm padded gig bag to protect it while I'm traveling or away at college.
The action, or how far away from the strings are from the fretboard, is a little too high for fingerpicking, but due to the small scale of the guitar, I don't have to apply too much pressure. I'm probably going to sand down the saddle later on.
If you're a child starting to learn guitar, or someone looking for a decent travel guitar, this is the best 3/4 guitar in its price range. If you don't go into this purchase with a mindset of thinking it will sound like a $1000 guitar, then you will be very pleased. Overall, I'm satisfied with my purchase and would highly recommend it! Can't wait to bring it to college with me!
I've used the 7/8 size Luna that a friend had and it seemed good. I would still consider Luna, but a larger size.
