OVERVIEW

The sounds of the islands, presented in deep, natural koa.

The Luna Guitars High-Tide Koa Concert Ukulele aptly takes it's inspiration from the full moon at the first fret which causes the abalone wave fret markers below it to "rise" as they make their way up the fretboard towards the moon's pull. High-Tide ukes are crafted from exotic tropical hardwoods, and the Luna "full moon" sticker inside the soundhole is framed by an abalone ring.

This beautiful Luna ukulele features a deep koa body, producing full, deep sound along with the instrument's concert body size. The cutaway offers comfort when accessing the upper-register frets, and the nato/mahogany neck and rosewood bridge and fretboard add lasting sustain and clarity to your tone. The open-style tuners keep the instrument in precise tuning and the onboard preamp provides easy amplification that can be dialed in quickly. Dressed in a satin finish and featuring a rosewood binding, you won't believe your eyes with the ukulele's natural beauty. Just wait 'til you hear it.

Includes a gig bag.

    Comments about Luna Guitars High-Tide Koa Concert Acoustic-Electric Ukulele:

    OK, so after reading reviews for this on A LOT of websites, i decided to take a chance buying a Uke I've not played. I know i wanted a Koa wood Uke, and tried a bunch at a local shop. Didn't like the tone of any of them.

    This Uke sounds awesome. . . maybe a little quiet in the volume department (when not plugged in obviously) but that's probably due to the fact that it's a laminated Koa top instead of solid.

    Still sounds very sweet. . . a nice mix of sweet highs and smooth lows.

    If you're worried about buying a Uke without playing it. . .BUY THIS ONE!

    The only complaint i have is that the electronics don't have a tuner built in. . . I mean really?? why didn't they spend the extra buck to put one in at the factory

    Awesome Uke For the Price!!!

    By KM

    from San Antonio, TX

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Luna Guitars High-Tide Koa Concert Acoustic-Electric Ukulele:

    Overall, I highly reccomend this uke!!
    This is my second Luna Ukulele purchase and it won't be my last.
    This a quality instrument and is very well made. The attention to detail is unline anything else I have seen in this price range. The neck has amazing abalone waves as fret markers and the rosette has a matching abalone ring. The wood is koa laminate and is very atractive with several shades of deep brown.
    I could not find a better ukulele for the money in terms of value.

    Comments about Luna Guitars High-Tide Koa Concert Acoustic-Electric Ukulele:

    Second uke. Amp'd sound is excellent. Holds tune well after strings stretch. Very happy with this model. Plan to purchase a couple more lesser priced Luna's to keep my kids away from mine. My son and daughter love it. My son plugs it in to his Fender amp and pedals and plays rock music on it. I would and will buy luna again.

    Luna High Tide Concert Ukulele

    By Dennis Thornton

    from West Virginia

    Comments about Luna Guitars High-Tide Koa Concert Acoustic-Electric Ukulele:

    I bought this ukulele a few months ago. I picked between this and an Ibanez model. I'm very happy with this decision.I like how it sounds acoustic and electric.
    Seems to be very well made and I get a lot of compliments on the look or it.
    This seems to be asw good or better than other models in and above the price range.

    A fine instrument

    Comments about Luna Guitars High-Tide Koa Concert Acoustic-Electric Ukulele:

    I didn't know a ukulele could sound this good. It is a fine musical instrument.
    As full featured as a Ukulele can get with pre-amp and acoustic pickup installed.
    Excellent fit and finish with beautiful bookmatched koa. Tuning machines are high grade and hold tune with no adjustment. Acoustic amplification works beautifully through a Fishman loudbox mini. Rating would be 10 if a plastic wire retainer for the preamp wires was not loose. This is an easy to fix item that I will take care of at the first string change
    This is the second Luna Uke I've purchased and they give excellent value

    I love this little Uke!

    By Marcie Gragg

    from Independence, MO

    Comments about Luna Guitars High-Tide Koa Concert Acoustic-Electric Ukulele:

    This little Luna Koa High Tide Uke as my first ukulele. I'd never played one before, nor really done a lot of looking. I fell in love with the look of this instrument and its quality. It's beautiful and sounds great! I took it home, along with a uke chord chart and in ten minutes had learned a song we want to play at church. I introduced it to my worship band and they LOVE the sound. I will play it in worship as often as I can! This little Luna is definitely worth the price! Love it!
    Great little on-board EQ and beautiful wood with alabone inlays!
    Great sound and beautiful construction!
    A good buy for the price. Excellent sound in for a mid-range priced ukulele.

      I'm very pleased with this instrument and would recommend it to anyone who asked me. This is my second uke and enjoy playing them both and experiencing the individuality of the instruments. The tone is nice, its stays in turn well, and is very comfortable to hold and play. The abalone inlay is beautiful and the set up was great right out of the box.

        Very Happy with this Luna. I have a Kala Tenor and this is a great Ukulele. I play it more than the Kala. This is a great first Ukulele. If you are thinking of learning the Ukulele, this is a great one to start one. The tone and sound quality is great, you will want to play this ukulele for hours and hours!

          Really impressed by ukuleles tone acoustically. Although I havent plugged it in yet. Beautiful abalone inlay for price. Very good easy to play action.
          Also came all the way to New Zealand and I was worried about any damage which might occur in shipping. But it was packaged really well, arrived in one week and in perfect condition.

          Comments about Luna Guitars High-Tide Koa Concert Acoustic-Electric Ukulele:

          This Ukulele is amazing. Its so beautiful because of the Koa wood and all my friends are envious. The sound is brilliant. I would never ever let anything ever happen to it. So far, it plays like a dream. Sometimes the strings come out of tune, but that can be fixed by tightening the screws on the tuner thingamibobbers. All in all it is friggin amazing and you should get it. Right now. Dont even hesitate. Just do it. You wont regret it. Its more worth it than anything. Even having kids.

          Great Value For The Price!

          By Albqsoloist

          from Albuquerque

          Comments about Luna Guitars High-Tide Koa Concert Acoustic-Electric Ukulele:

          I am really pleased with the features and the quality of the uke. The koa sounds and looks great. I really like the rosewood fretboard with the the abalone inlays of the fullmoon at the 1st fret and the tide rising as it gets closer to the fullmoon. It plays really great, it has good action, and you only have to press down very lightly. It stays in tune very well with the grover tuners and is equipped with Aquila Nylgut strings. For all of the features that it has, this is really an incredible buy for the price. I like it so much that I invested in a hardshell tweed case to protect it (it comes with a gig bag). I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great uke at an incredible price or to anyone just learning to play who wants something of quality.

          Comments about Luna Guitars High-Tide Koa Concert Acoustic-Electric Ukulele:

          This uke is tremendous. It's easy to play, it resonates well. The onboard pickup is great, the line output demands some EQ work but that's pretty standard. The strings that come standard are flimsy and don't deliver the strongest tone this instrument can provide. Get some better strings and you'll be sitting pretty.

          Service and delivery comments:

          The first one to arrive was damaged. It was quickly replaced with one in good condition.

              I bought this as a Christmas gift for my guitar-player husband on the chance that he might find it a fun diversion every once in a while. Boy, was I wrong. He hasn't picked up his guitars since he got this uke. He is totally addicted to it. He says "it is beautifully made - fit and finish is superb, the electronics sound very good, and it seems to be high quality instrument. It is quite loud - has a real ring to it". When he plugged it into his Fender Twin the first time, I thought he was playing his vintage gold top! Do yourself a favor and get the hard case for this - the Musician's Gear Concert Ukulele Case fits it perfectly. All in all, a great purchase and a surprise to hear ukulele music in the house all the time now!

                I am happy with this ukulele, however, I am a novice uke player, although I have been playing guitar for 45 years. I think that the tone is good, as is the fretboard, and the laminated Koa body. The only downside is the need for frequent tuning, more than I would expect for the Grover tuners on the headstock. This is not a problem for me as I tune my instruments frequently, anyway.

                In summary, for the price I am very satisfied.

                Comments about Luna Guitars High-Tide Koa Concert Acoustic-Electric Ukulele:

                I just got this uke in yesterday and I cannot stop playing it. I wasn't expecting it to come with a gig bag so that was a plus. I had to tune it (duh) when i got it and it has remained in perfect tuning since. I was slightly worried about how it would sound plugged up but it's honestly pretty gorgeous. The preamp could have been a little more elaborate, but I can't complain too much. Once I had added some mids to the mix it was sounding professional. The only flaw to this instrument, or my instrument, was the head stock. The tuners have glue imprinted everywhere. Kind of sloppy looking but the tuners work great. Lastly, the body of this uke is very stern and sexy looking. I could probably slam this thing against a wall and it not break. I am very impressed with this uke and would love for others to buy it.
