This is half the cost of the comparable Martins & Taylors, with really no compromise... A great deal for a great little guitar
I've owned Baby Taylors, Ovation & other 3/4 size guitars & I've played the little Martins too... - I was going to save up for a Taylor GS Mini, but now I don't need to.... The Baby Taylor was nice, but I had trouble keeping it in tune when I fretted a little hard or played hard - I needed to play very gently to retain proper tuning - The GS Mini solves this problem, you can dig in a little more, but at $500, it's a stretch - This little Luna is a very well-made guitar, nice frets, fit & finish are first rate - The neck is really comfortable - I did tweak the truss rod about a half-turn to imptove the action - That's all, no work needed on the saddle or nut - It plays in tune & is a really beautiful little guitar - The moon-phase inlays on the freatboard are a nice touch - Mahogany laminate, sounds like a parlor guitar, with more body & Bass than I expected to hear - A very pleasing tone overall. I'm using this as a back-up gig guitar, and hi-strung for a ukelele-type thing. A Seymour Duncan Maverick is the only pick-up that fits in the soundhole, but it sounds great and serves my purposes perfectly - The gigbag is useless, but you can buy a better one for $25... for a $139 guitar, it's a steal... buy it before they double the price.

I purchased this primarily as a travel guitar, just to practice on while on vacation. I had expected a cleaner sound and a little more rugged construction due to it having a Mahogany top, feels flimsy and has a tinny sound. I would have definitely gone to a better piece had I known. Advice to anyone, play it before you buy it.

Comments about Luna Guitars Muse Safari Series Mahogany 3/4 Dreadnought Travel Acoustic Guitar:

After taking delivery on the Luna Muse Safari Series Mahogany 3/4 Dreadnought Travel Acoustic Guitar, it became evident that this one needs a setup. The action is high and the intonation is off. It was shipped in extreme heat. However, I'm sure it will be fine after a visit to my guitar technician. I do like the tone, which is warm, articulate, sweet, and I expect it will improve over time. The body is relatively small and shallow, but the projection is bright enough. The guitar seems to be well crafted overall, especially considering the reasonable price, and the design has visual appeal. It came with a nice little canvas gig bag, and also a truss rod wrench, but I don't have the expertise needed to make fine adjustments. Even after the setup, I expect a little muscle will be needed to play barre chords up the neck. I use a pick most of the time, but the instrument is suitable for finger picking. I chose the mahogany top because I enjoy collecting instruments with a variety of tones. I also have a Samich Greg Bennett Design travel-size spruce top guitar, and the Luna Muse Safari, which is in the same price range, compares very well. My general impression is that the Luna Muse Safari will be a charming addition to my collection.

    This guitar is perfect for me! I've wanted to learn to play for years but have never been able to hold cords on a full size guitar because my hands are ridiculously small. With this guitar, I'm learning and loving it!!

    Comments about Luna Guitars Muse Safari Series Mahogany 3/4 Dreadnought Travel Acoustic Guitar:

    Its actually the size as a regular 1/2 guitar. I would just get the full travel size f you want something smaller but not too small... Regardless I love this little guy! Very bright and sounds great! I bought it for an intro to guitar class in college and its size is perfect for me to lug all over campus and keep in my dorm room. I have smaller hands so this is a good fit :)

    Comments about Luna Guitars Muse Safari Series Mahogany 3/4 Dreadnought Travel Acoustic Guitar:

    I bought this Luna because I wanted a travel guitar.

    It sounds great, very bright and very full for a guitar of this size. It's great to just settle down on the couch and play.

    Looks nice, built well. Very good value for an instrument of this price-range. I have already purchased another Luna because of this one's excellent sound and build.

    The gigbag it comes with is pretty to look at, but is entirely non-protecting. That's fine, I use it for a travel guitar, not on stage.

    Comments about Luna Guitars Muse Safari Series Mahogany 3/4 Dreadnought Travel Acoustic Guitar:

    This is an excellent little instrument overall. I bought it for my very petite (4'11", 95lbs) wife, who was having trouble with buzzing because of her wrist positioning on a full-size dreadnought. Sound wise - It's not going to replace your Martin... but you shouldn't expect a guitar in this price range to do that. It does sound smaller than a full-size guitar, but it still has surprisingly good bass response for a small, laminate-top guitar. For this price, I was very impressed with the finish of this instrument. Intonation is excellent all the way up the neck, and the shorter scale means lower string tension, which would make it an excellent choice for any younger/smaller student looking to learn acoustic guitar. If Luna made a left-handed version, I would probably buy one for myself just to use as a travel/camping guitar. Very cool little instrument that definitely fit the bill for my needs. I would recommend it without hesitation.

    Comments about Luna Guitars Muse Safari Series Mahogany 3/4 Dreadnought Travel Acoustic Guitar:

    This Luna is a great guitar for the price. If you have the cash, go Martin or Taylor 3/4 for a little better sound. If you have lots of cash, go for the CA Cargo but if you're in the market for an inexpensive but quality 3/4, then go with the Luna. Better sound than the Backpacker or the Washburn but not that much bigger. I have big hands and it does OK. The gig bag is a joke. Only reason I gave it 4 stars.

    Comments about Luna Guitars Muse Safari Series Mahogany 3/4 Dreadnought Travel Acoustic Guitar:

    For the price, how can you really complain. My particular guitar required adjustment of the truss rod. I also had to shave the saddle and file the nut to lower the action to make it playable. Also, the fret ends were very sharp and I had to file them down. If you have the ability to make these adjustments, you can have a decent guitar for little money.

    Bought this for my daughter. It's a cool little guitar and fun to play. It is what it is. She doesn't play often so I've not changed the strings yet. That could make a world of difference in sound, which is far from great right out of the box but not bad.

      Comments about Luna Guitars Muse Safari Series Mahogany 3/4 Dreadnought Travel Acoustic Guitar:

      We bought this guitar for our 7 year old, who has outgrown his cheap Hohner. We were just looking for something with decent intonation. We selected the Luna because it was a great deal and looked nice in the picture. First of all, it is absolutely beautiful. The action is just right. It has perfect intonation, and a beautiful rich sound. It really is a joy to play. Since we are both musicians, we were hoping to get a decent instrument, but this far exceeded our expectations, especially for the price. From now on, we will recommend Luna guitars for anyone looking for a guitar for a child. I think I am going to look into getting one of their full size acoustics for myself.

                I checked out the usual brand named 3/4 size guitars that were double the price and decided on this one because I couldn't justify the price and felt the Luna was just as good maybe even better. This guitar fit my needs perfectly and was well made, excellent sound and very playable.

                  I bought this for playing on the couch which it's well suited for, but it is small. More like a half size than 3/4. It is well made and stays in tune and has a fair sound with lite strings. I can not get the trues rod to move though and I'm afraid it will brake, other than that it was playable right out of the box.

I had expected a cleaner sound and a little more rugged construction due to it having a Mahogany top, feels flimsy and has a tinny sound. I would have definitely gone to a better piece had I known. Advice to anyone, play it before you buy it.
