    OVERVIEW

    Body design from the islands, with cool waves and shark teeth ornaments.

    The Luna Guitars Pineapple Soprano Ukulele resonates with warm tone from a mahogany body, and gets its design from traditional Hawaiian body ornamentation and uke formats. Hawaiian tattoos were monochromatic black against brown skin. The pattern and layout was strongly geometric featuring many shapes and symbols that represent the natural island world. The tattoo on the Luna soprano ukulele is based on waves and shark teeth, which are also echoed as fret markers.

    This Luna Guitars Tatoo Pineapple Soprano Ukulele was a replacement for another brand/model which I found unsatisfactory (Mahalo U-200). The additional expense was well worth it. I have no complaints whatsoever about this uke. Its pineapple body is easy to hold, it has nice tone, easy action, good intonation/stays in tune, and its looks are just fun! As a long-time guitarist entering the uke world, I highly recommend this reasonably-price uke without hesitation, as a good value for the price.

    not what I had hoped for

    I tuned it and tuned it. The strings were holding the tuning but the cords were sour. I had to send it back.

        Luna Pineapple Uke, 5 STARS for this little beauty!

        By Dick Claassen

        from Midwest, U.S.

        Comments about Luna Guitars Tattoo Pineapple Soprano Ukulele:

        This Luna Pineapple Uke is a real honey! Especially for the way I play it. I don't play the ukulele in the usual way. I replace the strings with the Aquila "Soprano Low G Bionylon" string set. That way I end up with a low G on the fourth string instead of a high G. This gives me real bass range. I don't strum my ukes. I finger pick them with a plastic thumb pick and metal finger picks. And I tune down the first string from A to a G. This gives me an open C tuning where I can explore many types of tunes without busting my fingers. On this little uke I play everything from Deep River Blues to classical pieces like Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring, (Bach). Intonation is excellent on all four strings all the way up the neck. Harmonics are right on the nose. String action is perfect, and it stays in tune very well. The tone is gorgeous for something with this small a body. If you are looking for the equivalent of a little piano you can hold in your lap as you finger pick your heart out, this is the instrument. I give this uke 5 BIG STARS!

        Dick - FluteFlights.com
        Attractive laser tatoo on the top, easy to hold, free gig bag, excellent tuners.
        Carefully made. No scratches, no dings, good finish, great sound, great intonation on all frets.
        Terrific value for the money. Terrific value, money aside.

        Fantastic Uke

        By dloe48

        from Phoenix, Arizona

        Comments about Luna Guitars Tattoo Pineapple Soprano Ukulele:

        This was my first Ukulele, But i've done my research. Before buying a ukulele, I tried to stay away from ukes where people have had problems with tuning. I was skeptical about this one since it didn't have too many reviews. I bought it, I had to tune it about twice and now it stays. It plays fantastic and every fret makes an adequate sound(another problem with some ukes).Fantastic Product

        By Michele Shea

        from New England

        Comments about Luna Guitars Tattoo Pineapple Soprano Ukulele:

        O.K. then..I like the fact that the strings were quality and the tuning is keeping well. I like the fretting and the whole feel, though I am a beginner and haven't had previous uke experience, I do own and used to play a guitar and know what strings should play like and how the sound should sound. It comes with a nice gig bag, nicer than I would have thought for the price - padded and a quality fabric, not plastic. Nice little pitch pipe and lame little booklet, but hey, you are gonna buy a method book anyway if you want to learn.
        Nice instrument. This is my first ukulele. Years ago I played a guitar, a good one. I wanted good sound in a ukulele at a good entry price. The Luna line is beautiful, and I was happily surprised at the lovely etchings in this pineapple style uke. After a week or so and a couple tunings, it really is holding the tuning nicely. I do check tuning every day when I practice. The wood is much nicer than the picture. It has a more warm deep tone then the photos which all look like it is a yellowy color and it is not. The box is a hoot, being pretty corny, but the uke is a fun instrument, so I am not complaining! Sound is rich, though not the loudest thing out there, it does make itself known. I have to say that among my uke owning friends, this one is the prettiest. I think the strings it comes with are actually pretty nice, though I bought a set of D'Addario in case. Might not need them for a long time. I'd buy this again for sure - what a bargain in fun and good music a ukulele is, and at the price this one sells for, don't even hesitate!
        I said it all already....great quality and factoring in the price...well....terrific.
        Buy it...buy it now! Not a minute to lose...so much fun....

        Luna Tattoo Pineapple

        By creteman60

        from Rogers, Arkansas

        Comments about Luna Guitars Tattoo Pineapple Soprano Ukulele:

        Of the three ukuleles I own, the luna pineapple is my favorite. Not only is it an attractive little instrument, it has a decent voice for this price range. I had to tighten the tuning screws the first time I tuned it, but have had no problem since then. I am very satisfied with this purchase, and the service I received from Musicians Friend.

        Nice Uke for a Beginner (like me...)

        By Eric Haar

        from Kansas City, MO

        See all my reviews

        Ask me a question

        Comments about Luna Guitars Tattoo Pineapple Soprano Ukulele:

        I wanted a ukulele and read through all the reviews on Musician's Friend and this particular model, the Luna Tattoo Pineapple, seemed to have the best balance of good reviews along with the features I wanted (soprano, pineapple body, not totally plain Jane) in the price range I was interested in.

        It's a good sounding instrument, it sounds to me like I think a ukulele should and plays nicely. I have no trouble chording comfortably on the neck. The mahogany body has a nice grain pattern and I like the laser engraved "tattoo" finish and "shark tooth" (triangle) inlays. It's easy to hold and so light you'll find yourself walking around with it cradled under your arm without even thinking about it.

        I'm not an expert on ukuleles by any means, but I'm definitely satisfied with this purchase. I've picked up several songs already and my kids love it. The fact that it's quieter than even my acoustic guitar makes it good for sing-alongs with the kiddos as it doesn't overpower them.
        The Luna Tattoo Pineapple is my first ukulele, but this model has all of the features that I would expect from one. I like the sound of the mahogany body and the geared tuners, which have nice pearloid buttons, hold tune well so far. Inlay work is nicely done and the laser engraving is cool. Comes with a nice gig bag (wife thought it was very cute) a pitch pipe and a chart with a few chords. Everything you need to get started, which is thoughtful in my opinion.
        Overall, construction is very good. The body is well made and finished and the intonation is mostly accurate according to my clip on tuner. Near the high end of the neck, some of the frets don't ring out quite as well as others, but I haven't found any true "dead" spots.

        The only construction flaws I noticed were a tiny bit of glue seepage on the E side of the neck joint, one fret slot that's cut deeper than the fret itself, and the dress job on the fret ends is a little rough, but for the price point, I think the construction is pretty good.
        As I've noted, I'm not extremely knowledgeable about ukes, but feel like this is a "good buy" at the price I paid.

        As a guitar player and I wanted something to fill in and highlight other instruments. Since tunning is different than guitar tunning --chords etc. I just grabbed a free chord chart online and was playing right along with guitar, bass, drums etc. It proudly sits in my recording studio right now. Suprising sound for such an inexpensive instrument,quite attractive as well.

        Luna Tattoo Pineapple

        By David Simmons

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Luna Guitars Tattoo Pineapple Soprano Ukulele:

        This is a beautiful quality instrument for the price. I wasn't sure about buying it because I had never heard of Luna before, but I am glad I bought it. I also purchased a Lanakai. The Luna stays in tune longer and the strings are closer to the fret, it is definitely my favorite.
        Love the design on the ukulele.
        The tuners hold well and the strings are close to the fret, making it easier to play for someone who has never played a stringed instrument.
        Excellent price for the quality of instrument.

          Comments about Luna Guitars Tattoo Pineapple Soprano Ukulele:

          I specifically wanted to buy a "pineapple" uke; so, I looked at all the reviews for this type of soprano uke, and decided that it was the best deal. The uke came without any imperfections. It has a nice sunshiny tone (not as mellow as my tenor uke, but that is to be expected). Also, being a novice, I was not sure how to do some of the "repairs" that others had mentioned about the other ukes for sale. Novices also need to remember that it's very normal that a uke takes a while for a new set of strings to stretch and settle. Also, remember to retune your uke from day to day before starting a new session of practice and play. This is also true for most instruments anyway (like flutes, horns, sax, clarinets).

          This is my first ukulele, and I love it! I would have given it a 10 if there wasn't a very small ding on the ukulele. The sound is warm and great. Not sure if the C and E strings sit a bit higher than the G and A strings- unless it's bc i dont know how to strum properly? Overall- fantastic! Highly recommended

          This is a great uke for the price
          This Tatto Pineapple Soprano Ukulele is a great Uke for the price. I have several high end Uke and I teach and I was afraid that I would accidentally damage one, so I bought this one for teaching. It's a lot of fun to play and has a decent sound and very good intonation. I had to send the 1st one back becuase the action was too low and it was buzzing, this one is perfect though no problems.

                  I bought this pineapple earlier and reviewed it. Since then, I have switched the high g to a low g string. Such a beautiful, well-rounded sound the the low g string. Either way, with high or low g strings, the uke has a great sound and easy to play. I also have a concert and tenor uke. This pineapple with the low g string is such a joy to play. It's a "delicious" sounding pineapple. :)

                  This is a great instrument for someone who is questioning whether or not they want to pick up the uke and learn to play. It is a bit in the pricey side for a novice instrument, but it is very worth the price for the quality. The intonation was spot on right out of the box, and the instrument was devoid of any manufacturing issues such as scratches and dents. The only problem I have had so far is with the tuners, they are not very great, and constantly go out of tune slightly. However, if you are willing to look past this minor issue, I would definitely suggest this instrument to you!

                      We bought each of our two kids (ages 8 & 10) a Luna ukulele for Christmas. They are durable and sound great. The kids are finding many resources on-line where they can learn how to play. It's nice to see them doing something that is not attached to a screen and we enjoy hearing the music in the house. Funny thing… I can't stop picking it up myself and have already learned 'I've been working on the railroad' in just a couple of days. Great purchase!!

Best part: it's actually a very good musical instrument, even though the price is quite low. It has a nice musical sound, and the intonation is great. That's what matters most. And on top of that it's very good-looking. Well-made. Good tuners. The case is nice. Well-designed and executed instrument. Fun!

                          Great little product right out of the box. Nice qaulity, great feel, good tone. Very attractive as well.

                              Better intonation than my Kala KA-S. Body edge feels a little sharp where my forearm rests on it.
