      Body design from the islands, with a Hawaiian turtle around the soundhole.

      The Luna Guitars Honu Soprano Ukulele boasts decorations inspired from traditional Hawaiian body tattoos. Hawaiian tattoo patterns and layout were strongly geometric with many shapes and symbols representing the natural island world: stones, waves, fish, sharks, turtles, rain, sun, birds. This design is based on a Hawaiian turtle (honu), a symbol of longevity and endurance rendered in a Polynesian tattoo style. The fret markers are stylized shark's teeth.

      Includes gig bag, tuner, and chord chart.

        Overall I gave it a 7 because the action and sound were good and since I bought it as a beater instrument to lug around to the beach and park where I won't take my good Ukulele for fear of damage it serves it's purpose well. Great sounding take anywhere Ukulele and a good price.
        The Luna Honu Soprano Ukulele doesn't have a lot of features but it wasn't sold as a high feature model. You get what you pay for features wise and this is a no frills Ukulele that feels good, plays well and sounds great. You'd be hard pressed to find a better sounding Ukulele in this price range.
        I had to ding it on quality because mine came with some pretty severe cosmetic issues. One of the fret markers has a slight gap along one edge, another had excess glue around it and the top of the headstock was not sanded at all. Seriously the top of the headstck stock was not sanded at all, the saw marks were still there. However the quality control issues seemed to be only with the cosmetics. The action is good and intonation is spot on (after the strings streched and settled). In defense of Luna this model was on back order for some time and mine looks like it was a rush job trying to fill orders but that's not really a good excuse for poor quality control.
        As for value it's a pretty decent deal for the price. I would have given it higher marks for value had the headstock been sanded. I can overlook minor cosmetic issues in this price range but to totally miss sanding the headstock in prodction?

        I really love the look of this Ukulele. I feel that for the price it is a decent deal and it has a true Ukulele sound. The quality is alright considering it was made in China. But I was unwilling to pay more for a practice Uke to drag around with me. I will change the strings right away to Martin strings and it seems to buzz a little at the first fret but all in all, it is quite playable. I do not regret the purchase at all.I am loving the whole Luna Experience!

          Great uke to learn on, great sound. Have picked up and played a multitude of ukes since starting 2 years ago, and love the sound of this the most (well, minus the crazy expensive custom hand made concerts...) Full bodied, happy, great tone.

          Instrument is stronger than you'd think, too. Accidentally flew across a room and bounced across a hard floor. Expected it to be busted, but only a minor compression mark on the wood - no change of shape and nothing noticed in sound. I don't recommend getting it airborne, but the unexpected strength impressed me. Because of this experience, I plan on purchasing Luna guitars for my son as he grows. This made me a big fan of the brand.

          Bought it with a bit of hesitation thinking maybe the "pretty" was making up for sound, but it is defintiely a great uke that happens to have some decoration. Design is lighter than pictured. Not subtle, but definitely not bold like the photo.

          WISH I purchased from Musician's Friend, but this was before I knew they existed - price here is definitely better and MF is always primo with service. Already expanded my collection through MF. Luna is a great brand.

                I play other string instruments so I thought I'd give the ukulele a try. This product is good for what you pay for. The tuners are poor quality. The construction seems pretty good and it is pretty to look at. The sound quality is decent and my fellow musicians have commented on how good it sounds for being so tiny. It stays in tune fairly well. As a first ukulele I think it is a good choice.

                        Bought it as a travel uke because I don't want to risk my good uke. Good quality for the sale price, tone improves as I use it (have had it about 3 weeks). Stays in tune after strings stretch, good quality construction. Actually prettier than pictures indicate- carving of turtle is more subtle (not black as in picture). Tuners not best quality but okay for price.

                          Beautifully constructed with quality wood, machine head, bridge. Image of turtle carved into the face. Sound is very good for a low-priced soprano uke. Good for both beginner and advanced players.

                              I am a classical guitarist who needed a nice uke to work with students. This one is nicely made, all the frets are clear and the action good. The design is fun too. Since I need to be ready to work with students, it was nice to have the bag and tuning pitch pipes and chord sheet. I liked the woman owned company's goal to create instruments with an artistic design and for different sizes.

                                I bought this for my child to begin taking lessons. It is sturdy and strong and stays in tune well. The tone sounds great. It has a fun pattern and is attractive, so it motivates her to want to play more. We also own other Luna instruments and have found their quality to be good and consistent.

                                      general appearance. Excellent for the price. I am sure it will more than do the job for the student and will be with her for a long time. For a new instrument, the strings stay in tune quite well.
