Imagine: Luna's Student Guitar Inspires Music and Artistry

If you're thinking ahead to the holidays and hoping to gift a special child on your list with something that encourages them to think and be creative, doesn't involve sitting in front of a TV or computer for hours on end, won't gobble batteries endlessly, and is actually - gulp! - affordable... Luna's innovative "Imagine" student guitar is the perfect choice.

New to Luna's line of Aurora student guitars last year, the Imagine model is ideally sized for kids - small and light for easier handling and playing. Maple construction and chrome hardware give the instrument its sound quality and stand up to the wear-and-tear of energetic young players.

The Imagine guitar's real distinction, though, is its appearance. "We call the finish 'Blank Slate,'" says Yvonne de Villiers, Luna Guitars' Executive Director and Artistic Designer. "It's a glossy, black finish on which kids can draw their own designs - geometric patterns, flowers, words, pictures... anything they want. The Imagine comes with its own damp-erase markers. Once the artwork is dry, it'll stay in place under normal playing conditions. But when it's time for a new look, the guitar wipes clean with a damp cloth and the slate is blank again, ready for your next artistic inspiration. It makes a great gift for kids and a wonderfully fun way for grown-ups and kids to interact by creating designs for the guitar together."

Luna's Aurora line of student guitars also features a selection of brightly hued models, including the fanciful Mermaid, a charming instrument brought to life by the work of Florida artist Mary Ann DiNella. The petite dreadnought body style finished in Aqua Splash provides the perfect background for a lively game of tag between a bubbly mermaid and her turtle pal. Luna's crescent moon at the soundhole and our signature moon phase fret markers make the Mermaid a favorite beginners' guitar.

The Imagine, the Mermaid and Luna's full line of Aurora student guitars are available at authorized Luna dealers. For complete descriptions and specifications, visit the Luna Web site at and follow the links to the Aurora acoustic guitars.

At Luna, we are always interested in your requests. Many of you have written requesting official Luna accessories, and we are happy to announce our new Luna "Shoppe" feature which will be online very soon. We hope to add many unique offerings to the "Shoppe" as it evolves and have started with the most-requested items. Here are a few highlights:

  •  Luna Unisex Tee - 100% cotton: Great for male or female players, the shirt displays the Luna Guitars logo in white on a black background.

  • Luna Strap Tank - 100% cotton: Baby rib tank with spaghetti straps embellished by stylized henna art around the Luna crescent moon. The custom henna art was created by renowned henna artist Alex Morgan whose work graces our Henna guitar series. Teal artwork on black.  

  • Luna Scoop Tee - 100% cotton: Ladies' short-sleeved scoop neck tee with the Luna Guitars logo in white on black.

  • Luna Microfiber Instrument Cloths baby your Luna guitar in style! Softer, finer and more durable that any other fabrics available. Graced by an image of Luna's lovely Henna Goddess to add visual enjoyment to practicality.

  • Luna Guitar Picks: Our classic, medium weight celluloid picks offer maximum memory and minimal wear. Luna's crescent moon graces one side and the Luna name is on the other. A dozen picks in classic black or purple pearloid.

  • Luna Guitar Pick Earrings: Classic celluloid guitar picks are fashioned into attention-getting and practical earrings featuring the Luna crescent moon logo with Swarovski crystal accents and beads. Equally at home with jeans or dressed up for a night on the town.

  • Luna Guitars Official Ad Posters - In response to the overwhelming number of requests we've received for posters of our signature Luna Guitars ad, we're pleased to offer two stunning favorites. Choose the Luna Henna guitar in subtle sienna or the Luna Phoenix in classic black and white.

We hope that you will enjoy these online offerings and will write to let us know what else you would like to see in the future! We will definitely make it happen.

Sending holiday wishes for peace, love and joy to all.

From your Luna Guitars team 


Mini Size, Mighty Sound!

Because Luna's Pandora Mini guitar and bass are SO different from most instruments out there in the music world, our staff receives lots of comments and questions about them. Have you seen the petite pair yet? If not, check 'em out at Go ahead...we'll wait for you.



What's really amazing about the Mini guitar and  bass is that these aren't built for kids - even though they're the perfect size for small hands. Oh sure, Luna's youngest players just love them. But so do the big, adults. Perfectly proportioned and fully outfitted with many of the same sound-packing features found on the full size Pandoras, the Minis are as much fun to play as they are to look at. And audiences will be looking, all right. One of the most frequent comments we receive from Mini owners is how attention-grabbing these guitars are. Get a little one in the spotlight and just watch what happens!

The Mini guitar and bass are constructed of super lightweight paulownia wood and have rosewood fingerboards over maple necks. A humbucking pickup delivers plenty of sound power on the guitar, and a soapbar pickup is featured on the bass. The pair comes in Sizzling Pink and Cosmic Purple, respectively, but you can also get both in glossy Raven Black. Both offer double cutaway body design to make the most of their petite necklines.


So don't be fooled by their low profiles. Pandora Minis are real in every sense of the word. Play one today and you'll see why they say that great things come in small packages.
