OVERVIEW

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.

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

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!

    Comments about Luna Guitars Honu Soprano Ukulele:

    Purchased for my Granddaughter as a upgrade from a uke made of plastic so the improvement in tone and sound projection were significantly better of course. It is what it is-an entry level instrument that is sufficient to learn to play on. Decent tone and construction for the price point.

          I purchased this uke for my teenaged daughter as a Christmas gift: She struggled with guitar and we are fans of the many wonderful ukulele musicians on youtube, so I thought it might be a nice alternative for her. She absolutely loves it! It is her favorite gift this year. I know Luna makes fine guitars so I felt confident that the uke would be a quality instrument--I am more than pleased.This uke has beautiful tone, stays in tune and looks fabulous. I would like to buy one for myself :)

            I got this as a Christmas present for my sister. She's 16, and never played a stringed instrument before. She loves this thing. Very good tone, wood grain is very pretty. Only thing I can really say that's different about this uke vs the one in the picture, is the turtle is lighter, or the body is darker in real life. Personally I like it, I think subtle is beautiful, but just FYI.

                    Its a beautiful ukulele! I bought it to learn how to play, but should have probably started out with a cheaper one because it is a lot harder than I thought to learn how to play. I am trying to learn from DVDs and online info, and its just not very easy to learn. I don't have any form of musical background so that's probably why. But the ukulele itself is great and has a very strong sound! So I would recommend it to anyone who already knows how to play at least a little bit.
