The Luna Banjolele 8" Ukulele brings banjo punch to the ukulele party. It features some inspired etchings on its mahogany back. The mahogany neck has a smooth rosewood fingerboard and a 15.5" soprano scale. Tuned like a concert ukulele, this banjolele is sure to add some distinctive tones to your jams.
The etched patterns on the back of Luna's banjoleles are a tribute to traditional Hawaiian quilt design. In the early 1800's, missionaries brought woven fabrics and steel needles and taught the Hawaiian people how to make patchwork quilts. But the Hawaiians made them uniquely their own. The designs were cut from one piece by folding fabric in the same way that you would fold paper to cut snowflakes and were based on the many plants that surrounded them. Luna has chosen the KALO (taro plant) as inspiration because this plant was a sacred and an essential part of early Hawaiian life.
Luna is a line of comfortable stringed instruments made for musicians of all ages and beautifully crafted to engage minds and spirits along with talent. Getting a Luna instrument is sort of like joining a tribe. There's a great vibe among "members" and a commitment on the part of Luna to help everyone succeed in fulfilling thier dreams. There's even a Luna University of free guitar lessons online to registered owners of Luna guitars.

Comments about Luna Guitars Banjolele 8" Ukulele:
I am a fairly new ukulele player and I decided I wanted to get a banjolele. I was surprised at how expensive they can be though, and had a hard time finding a model I wanted to try in my price range. And no one locally stocks them so I couldn't just pop in somewhere and try one out.
I ordered this Luna and crossed my fingers. It arrived needing adjustment (the bridge was nowhere near the right place) but after adjusting and tuning it, it has a nice clear voice and doesn't sound brash at all. It has a nice banjo sound and its pretty to look at.
Some people on other sites have reviewed this model poorly but I think it will be fine for me to grow with.
