OVERVIEW

Inspired by the Emerald Isle with original soundhole designs.

An ancient Celtic interlace pattern, interpreted in a contemporary fashion at the soundhole of this instrument, create a stunning look – punctuated by a pelta mother-of-pearl motif (select horse or swan on the drop down menu) at the 12th fret designed by henna artist Alex Morgan, against an ebony fingerboard. A circular triangle is found at the headstock, and echoed at the heelstock, for the player’s enjoyment.

Motifs:
The swan is a symbol of love and fidelity, because swans sustain their relationship for life. The swan also has a connection to music, as its feathers were often used in the ritual cloak of the Celtic bards.

The horse was revered by the Celts for its speed and vigor, and associated with sovereignty, abundance and guidance.

Comments about Luna Guitars Grand Concert Celtic-Themed Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I took a chance on this despite some reviews claiming neck issues. It turns out there is a warp in the neck, but it was still playable. But after less than a month, an internal brace started rattling too. So now it is in the shop getting both the brace and the neck fixed. The upside is a good tone and nice materials used on this instrument.

For the discounted price I paid I might recommend this to a DIY handy musician that is willing to do some setup. Otherwise, I could not recommend this to anyone that does not know how to adjust and fix it.

Comments about Luna Guitars Grand Concert Celtic-Themed Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Looks and feels like a 3/4 rather than a full size, the electronics are loose inside the guitar and makes noise when I move the guitar, annoying.

Comments about Luna Guitars Grand Concert Celtic-Themed Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I thought about this one for a while, wondering whether to believe the positive review or the negative. The price was right, so I decided to chance it--and I'm glad I did. The Celtic Horse is a beautiful guitar with a fast neck and a loud, even voice. Mine needed a 30-buck setup to lower the action and tighten two screws under the saddle that were causing a thunking sound on the D string (hence the 4 stars instead of 5) but it was well worth it. No, it doesn't sound as sweet as my old Gibson L-00, or as balanced as my more recent Martin 00015, but it's louder than either one, it stays in tune even with a capo on, and it's got a pickup and tuner with a battery that's easy to get to. All it needs is a case--but coincidentally I had purchased a rigid Luna bag (really a lightweight cloth case with plush lining) a few months back on the cheap from MF or GC I think, and it's a perfect stall for the Celtic Horse.

    Had to go back

    About Me Experienced

    Comments about Luna Guitars Grand Concert Celtic-Themed Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I was impressed by the finish and top design when I first opened the box, but the guitar had some problems. First, I noticed a strange buzz coming from inside the guitar when a note was played. I loosened the strings and looked inside and discovered that the bridge (or maybe the pickup system) was fastened with small nuts on screw posts and one of the nuts was loose. Also, the plastic clip holding the wires inside the guitar was no longer stuck in place. These were easy enough fixes, but then I discovered the neck problems. Though the action was fairly high, some strings still buzzed against some of the upper frets. A look at the neck revealed some uneven frets beyond the neck/body joint, and there were some light scuffs on the fretboard that looked like they were made by someone trying to file the frets. When I called MF, they were happy to take it back and said they hadn't had many problems with these guitars, but the big discount makes me think otherwise. I'm not sure if I want to try another one.
