Luna Guitars Unveils the Henna Dragon

An acoustic-electric model that features a slightly smaller body shape and artwork by Henna artist Alex Morgan.

Tampa, FL (March 13, 2020) -- Luna Guitars unites ancient rituals and modern features in the new Henna Dragon Spruce Acoustic-Electric guitar. Featuring a custom laser etched “dragon” design from UK henna artist Alex Morgan, the Henna Dragon is a powerful ally for players to have on their musical journey. Suitable for both beginners and experienced performers, the Henna Dragon puts power and confidence at the players’ fingertips while delivering vibrant, versatile tone.

For centuries, the symbol of the dragon has held a prominent role in the folklore of many cultures around the world. To this day, the dragon is most commonly recognized by its spiritual meaning, giving off the aura of courage to those that need it the most, strength to prevail, and protection from danger. The Henna Dragon Spruce Acoustic-Electric harnesses the symbolic power of this majestic creature, both spiritually with its stunning design and physically through its high-quality materials.

Built with a slightly smaller grand concert body shape, the Henna Dragon has a warm, full tone. The mahogany back and sides with a select spruce top create rich definition from note to note with plenty of presence and unique character when playing rhythmic chords. The Henna Dragon’s cutaway design enables high-fret access on the sturdy mahogany neck (25 1/2-inch scale) with set-neck construction and dual-action truss rod. The C-shape neck has a pau ferro fretboard with a 15-inch radius for comfortable, clean playing.

The Henna Dragon’s 20 frets are crafted with Luna Guitars’ unique Pearloid Moon Phase inlays. The laser-etched henna dragon design is also represented on the headstock along with the Luna Guitars insignia. The pau ferro bridge nicely contrasts with the light Satin Natural finish of the body. Single-ply white binding unites the body materials with class and sophistication.

Luna Guitars keeps the Henna Dragon’s electronics simple yet powerful with the Luna SL3 pre-amp with built-in tuner. This system helps to recreate the natural resonance of the tonal woods. Delivering on power, the Henna Dragon’s NuBone nut (1 11/16-inch width) is a derivative of Graph Tech's highly resonant TUSQ material, and is manufactured to precise tolerances under high heat and pressure. The material’s specific ratios contribute to its endurance and performance. Sealed die cast tuners on the headstock improve tuning stability.

Whether the player is new to the Luna Guitars brand or already a member of the Luna Tribe, they’ll find a beautiful and reasonably priced companion in the Henna Dragon Spruce Acoustic-Electric.

MSRP $249.00

Can an entry-level modeler hang with the big dogs?

Excellent interface. Very portable. Nice modulation tones.

Some subpar low-gain dirt sounds. Could be a little more rugged.

The allure of portability and sonic consistency has become too much to ignore for some guitarists, making smaller digital modelers more appealing than ever.

"'If I fall and somehow my career ends on that particular day, then so be it," Joe Bonamassa says of his new hobby, bicycling. "If it's over, it's over. You've got to enjoy your life."

For his stylistically diverse new album, the fiery guitar hero steps back from his gear obsession and focuses on a deep pool of influences and styles.

Twenty years ago, Joe Bonamassa was a struggling musician living in New York City. He survived on a diet of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and ramen noodles that he procured from the corner bodega at Columbus Avenue and 83rd Street. Like many dreamers waiting for their day in the sun, Joe also played "Win for Life" every week. It was, in his words, "literally my ticket out of this hideous business." While the lottery tickets never brought in the millions, Joe's smokin' guitar playing on a quartet of albums from 2002 to 2006—So, It's Like That, Blues Deluxe, Had to Cry Today, and You & Me—did get the win, transforming Joe into a guitar megastar.
