Overview

This traditional concert uke takes its design from traditional hawaiian body ornamentation. Those designs were monochromatic, tattooed in black against brown skin, with strongly geometric patterns, and many shapes and symbols inspired by the natural island world: stones, waves, fish, sharks, turtles, rain, sun, birds. The design is primarily based on waves and sharks teeth which are also echoed as fret markers. This electric model adds the advantage of an onboard preamp.

Includes gig bag.

I'm SO EXCITED about this little instrument! Upon opening it, I noticed how carefully it was packaged....overkill, in fact! Then, expecting a mediocre finish, for the price, and WOW was I surprised! it is just beautiful! The "tattoo" engraving is really nicely done, first class! So I played the heck out of this little beauty for 3 days and was amazed at well it stayed tuned! The sound is really mellow, not 'tinny' Really sweet! My rockin' son, plugged it in to his Line 6 amp and played some Hendrix with it. WOW!! I'm so happy with this Uke and can hardly wait to get back at it in about, oh, 3 minutes from now! I highly recommend this not only for the exceptional price but for it's craftsmanship and sweet sound!

Out of Tune and Bad Electronics

E string wouldn't hold tune. Maybe needs to be broken in, but my Kala has been consistent and flawless out of the box. The 1/4" jack stopped working after an hour....Read complete review

Best Acoustic/Electric Uke

Comments about Luna Guitars Tattoo Concert Ukulele with Preamp:

I have been playing ukulele for almost 10 years, and this is one of the best for the value I have come across. I own 4 ukuleles (2 acoustic/electric) and have played dozens of other high quality and a/e ukes. You will be hard pressed to find a better a/e uke for a similar price.

Things I like:
Great tone, attractive design, fret mark inlay, pearloid tuning heads, solid electronics and construction, clear tone through preamp

Things I don't like:
Head design is printed (not inlay), powered by cr2032 coin cell batteries (not 9 volt), unusual size

Note on uke size: This is abnormally shaped, compared to other concert ukes. the upper and lower bout are slightly wider than normal, and the body is deeper than usual, causing the strings to hit the top of a standard concert case. I have tried it with a concert hard case, as well as well padded gig bad, but neither fits well. This uke comes with a simple fabric gig bag that fits.

This uke is terrific for the price and an excellent starter, if you think you'll want to be getting into electric ukes. This was actually a downgrade for me because I wanted a cheaper uke that I could carry around and not be concerned about damaging. If you're in the market for a higher quality acoustic electric, you're looking at around $270+. These usually include more inlays, a rosette, purfling, binding, finish, and a 9 volt battery power supply.

It's a great ukulele but the title is a little misleading

      Comments about Luna Guitars Tattoo Concert Ukulele with Preamp:

      I love this ukulele but I bought it thinking it would be concert sized since it says "concert ukulele" on the product name, but instead it's the size of a soprano ukulele. But other than that it has a great tone and holds its tuning pretty well.

          Comments about Luna Guitars Tattoo Concert Ukulele with Preamp:

          I play many other stringed instruments so I bought this just for fun. It sounded great and plays well. I tuned it and began playing right out of the box.

          Bought this for my Girlfriend for Christmas and she Loves it. I think I like it even more. I play Mandolin, Bass, and Guitar. When we got this I looked up Uke chords on-line and was playing it almost immediately. The sound is fantastic. The pick-up/electronics sound great. really a nice product. I have a Luna acoustic Bass also.
