The Oasis Folk Cutaway Nylon-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar features a solid cedar top adorned with laser etched Henna artwork and maple back and sides. This tonewood combination produces a nylon-stringed guitar with a warm and sweet tone that easy to play. The cutaway body style gives access to the fretboard and the onboard B-Band 3-band EQ preamp with a built-in tuner means you are ready to play on any stage.
State-of-the-art laser etching technology faithfully recreates the intricate design that renowned henna artist Alex Morgan envisioned especially for Luna in this breathtaking guitar. The instrument's folk styling provides a perfect background that evokes the sensuous lines and curves that make henna body art such a beguiling form of expression. Rich woods and complex tones offer players a guitar that is as unforgettable in its craft as it is in its artistry.
Regarding the Ancient Art of Henna... Ornamenting the skin with henna is among the world's oldest known art forms. A paste is made from the henna plant (Lawsonia Inermis) and applied to the skin in a wide array of intricate designs. The ancient cosmetic and healing practice—known as Mehndi—is still widespread among cultures in North Africa, Asia and the Middle East. In today's Western world, there has been a great resurgence in the use of henna, and Luna's Henna guitars are a tribute to this ancient feminine art form.
