OVERVIEW

Lightweight and versatile.

The semi-hollowbody Luna Athena Sun is an electric guitar sized for comfort and crafted for superb sound and play. Luna's V set maple neck combines ultimate stability with a comfortable profile that allows optimum ease of play or a quick shift into high gear when speed is required.

This jazzy semi-hollowbody guitar sets things on edge by moving Luna's signature mother-of-pearl moon phase fret markers from the center to the edge of the rosewood fingerboard to make finding notes easier! The Athena Sun guitar's mini-humbucking pickup delivers full-bodied tones and Luna's trademark slim neck profile and single cutaway design puts every chord and note within easy reach.

Luna's signature crescent moon logo shines brightly from the Athena Sun Guitar's gently curved headstock. Elegant and durable brushed nickel Grover tuners provide smooth, precise tuning. The Luna Athena Sun has a light and efficiently compact body that's a pleasure to play for hours on end. A matte nickel tailpiece completes the Athena Sun's smart looks, making this a great choice for sophisticated players. Case sold separately.

    Comments about Luna Guitars Athena Sun Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    Thia is a pretty good, "cheap guitar." I wanted a compact jazz semi-hollow to go along with my full size hollowbody. I like to play Jazz, but wanted something smaller and more comfortable The Luna was very different and was kind of "off the beaten path. I love to search for good-inexpensive guitars and I've owned about 22 guitars in my search. The frist one I received, the bridge pick-up did not work and I had to send it back. The second one was OK and After a few adjustments, it really plays great. It has a great Black finish and nice appointments. The fret markers might be a little busy for some, but you get use to them. The headstock, fretwork and neck are great and the mini humbuckers sound just right for my needs. I really enjoy this guitar. It was between the Luna and a Ibanez AS73. The luna, for my taste, sounded much better and I'm an Ibanez fan and owner. Just make sure you check it out thoroughly when you get it and make sure its not a sub-standard issue. Get a good one like mine and you're go to go. (oh by the way. The guitar I received has a stop-bar bridge, not the harp style bridge you see in a lot of pictures on the web. Why they still show the Harp tail piece and not the stop bar is beyond me. I guess someone will catch the mistake sooner or later.)

    Great guitar for the money

    Comments about Luna Guitars Athena Sun Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    This is a wonderful guitar. It has a great tone and is very reliable. Luna is definitely my brand of choice now. Not only is it the best guitar for the money, but it also comes with 2 pickguards and a guitar catalog. Not bad, not bad at all! The only thing that would make me happier is if Luna brought back the Apollo.

    Great for the $$$$

    Comments about Luna Guitars Athena Sun Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    I play out in a little cover band and was looking for something that would perform well on stage and catch people's eye. This guitar does both. The action is great, the feel is fantastic, and the pick-ups cover a great range for being mini-buckers. It is the first semi-hollow that I have really enjoyed playing. The biggest challenge that I have had with it are changing the strings and swapping out the pots. Other than that I have been very happy.

    Some things missing.

    Comments about Luna Guitars Athena Sun Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar:

    I was excited when I frst started playing with this guitar. It has a very clean sound to it and can even pull out a little oomph with the distortion.However, when I recieved this guitar it seemed "used" The pick guard was scratched, there was no gazelle on the pick guard, some scratches here and there etc. I don't think this could happen on the way to my house because it was packed pretty well.
