Overview

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.

Gig bag sold separately.

    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.

    Comments about Luna Guitars Banjolele 8" Ukulele:

    Bought this as a gift for my son who plays bass in an "oldies band". Hope he likes it; I like the same instrument that I bought for myself as a beginner strumming banjo type sing alongs. Having grown up in Philadelphia, I am a huge fan of the Mummers String Bands that march in the annual New Years Day ,Mummers Parade. This little banjo sounding uke is easy for any skill level to play and the quality of appearance and sound is well worth the modest price. So "Keep On Smiling" while " Looking Over A Four Leaf Cover " playing " Jambalaya " on a Luna Banjolele.

      Comments about Luna Guitars Banjolele 8" Ukulele:

      I ordered the Luna Banjolele because I played a friends and liked it. However I ordered mine through the Guitar Center with the promise that they'd set it up for me. It wasn't set up when my husband picked it up so I took it back out n the guy measured and moved the bridge to where it's supposed to go. Then took it over to a regular ukulele hanging in the wall and supposedly tuned it. It's awful the A string won't even tune up with my electronic tuner.The top is all wrinkly looking and he said its because the bridge presses on it. None of my friends are that way. And it buzzes awful. I want my money back. I will never buy another instrument from this place and no more Luna anything.

      Comments about Luna Guitars Banjolele 8" Ukulele:

      I just got the Luna Banjolele, a little less then a month ago. I play in a Bluegrass group and was wanting that banjo twang so had to try it out. It wasn't hard to learn to play, but I've been playing guitar and mandolin for years so pick this instrument fairly fast, haven,t got the finger picking down very good yet but its coming along. The only problem really have had with the Luna Banjolele is the strings were popping out of the bridge but I just filed the slots a little deeper and solved that problem. The band members really like the new sound it gives the group a little ukulele sound with that banjo twang, A real good two sounds for one instrument.
