Luna Guitars Expands Wabi Sabi Series

Luna Guitars is pleased to announce the addition of the folk sized body shape acoustic guitar to the popular Wabi Sabi Series. The guitar features a folk body style (in-between a parlor and grand concert) a solid spruce top, and Luna SL3 preamp with tuner and built-in EQ.


Commonly depicted using Japanese aesthetics, Wabi Sabi is a world view that embraces imperfection and appreciates beauty that is incomplete in nature. Like the philosophy, the Wabi Sabi Series is for players looking to improve their playing abilities and perfect their craft without worrying about errors.

The Luna Wabi Sabi Folk Acoustic-Electric guitar features a solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides with black binding, a mahogany "C"-shape neck with a 20-fret 15"-radius laurel fretboard and a Bone 1 11/16"-nut. In addition, it has a satin natural finish, a "Zen Brushstroke" rosette, pau ferro bridge, sealed die-cast chrome tuners, dual-action truss rod and D'Addario EXP16 (.012-.053) coated strings.

While the Yamaha name is famous in circles beyond the guitar world, they’ve made first-class guitars since the 1960s. And while they don’t unleash new releases with the frequency of some larger guitar brands, every now and then they come down the mountain with a new axe that reminds us of their capacity to build great electric 6-strings. In 2015, Yamaha introduced the first generation Revstar. With a handsome aesthetic inspired by the company’s motorcycle racing heritage, the Revstar combined sweet playability and vintage style touchstones. This year, Yamaha gave the Revstar an overhaul—including body chambering, updated pickups, and new switching. What’s impressive is how these alterations enhance the already impressive playability and versatility of the original.
