Luna Guitars Introduces the Steel Magnolia Resonator

The new model offers a Piezo and built-in magnetic pickup to give you the option to play acoustically, electrically, or blend them.

Tampa, FL (April 5, 2019) -- Luna Guitars has added the 2019 Luna Steel Magnolia Resonator to the company’s bluegrass line. Embraced by artists such as Rick Springfield, the Steel Magnolia Resonator guitar offers a distinguished look – with classic elements and forward-looking appointments – while delivering a variety of tonal options and features. The Steel Magnolia offers a Piezo and built-in magnetic pickup, so resonator players have the option to play acoustically, electrically or blend them both to create a wide range of sounds.

“The Luna Resonator is a sexy guitar. Its swampy and authentic sound was ideal for the songs on my album The Snake King,” said Rick Springfield. “The attention to detail on the guitar is superb and the sonic choices are varied and cool. I play this beautiful thing every night in our live show.”

Given Luna’s design-inspired approach, the engraving on the resonator body speaks volumes on and off the stage. A laser-etched magnolia flower is located delicately on the front around the f-holes and spread out on the back of the body. The magnolia flower represents a love of nature, which is a common theme that can be associated with other Luna instruments including the popular Vista Series.

“The Luna Tribe embodies ukulele enthusiasts, guitarists and now we are excited to offer expand on the bluegrass line with the return of the Luna Resonator, which offers the Tribe [Luna owners] more tonal variety to add to their music, particularly for our blues and country players,” said Adam Gomes, Director of Marketing & Artist Relations at Luna Guitars.

The Luna Steel Magnolia Resonator guitar is available for purchase at Pricing is $869.00 with free shipping in the USA’s lower 48 states.

Walrus Audio Slötvå


Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.
