The Gypsy Parlor is built using select spruce for the top-wood, a mahogany neck, back and sides, and rosewood fingerboard. The Luna Gypsy Parlour will produce warmth, bright attack, and a tone perfectly suited to the folk/country genre. Mahogany is used a lot in the acoustic world because it is relatively economical, durable, attractive, easy to work with, and resonant. Mahogany contains distinct character of a soft warmth, but is well balanced with a bite of its own. The organic nature of the wood makes each Luna guitar uniquely different, you will find each guitar has a slightly unique tone to one another, this has become signature of Luna guitars.
The Parlour Shape
The parlour shape was originally designed to be small and comfortable enough to play sat in an arm chair or on a front porch. Today, the parlour shape covers a wide spectrum of guitars, from traditional western styles to electro-acoustic one-of-a-kind boutique builds. Parlour guitars are smaller than concert shaped guitars but with an elongated body that provides an increase in volume without increasing the size of the instrument completely. Because of their smaller bodies, parlour guitars tend to have tones that emphasize the mid section. The parlour shape ensures a comfortable playing experience, especially for smaller framed people due to its slimmer body.
The mahogany neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard, which delivers a warm, bright, and sparkly tone that really shines through when using finger picking techniques. The neck is specially designed by Luna to ensure a comfortable playing experience that puts challenging notes and chords within easy reach. The reason why many guitar necks are made from mahogany is because the wood responds greatly to picking techniques, strumming, and various finger techniques with equal ease. The Gypsy Parlour has a natural finish, and exclusive mother of pearl moon phase fingerboard markers, providing you with a guitar of outstanding beauty.
The Luna Gypsy Parlour has a BC350 on-board tuning system with easy read screen. The built in tuner enables players to tune their guitars on the go, and quickly re-tune in-between songs.
Yvonne Villiers is an accomplished stained-glass artist who envisioned Luna guitars. Her inspiration for a line of guitars designed to maximise playing comfort came from her mother, Hilda Villiers, a bassist for over 40 years.
Whilst watching her mum on stage, Yvonne couldn't help but notice the massive struggle her mum had whilst playing. With her mum being petite and using such a heavy instrument, she used to complain of how hard it was to be a woman and try to play these big bass guitars. Yvonne then questioned if there were others like her mum that struggled with the same problems and pains. She came up with the idea of a woman specific guitar, uniquely tailored to fit their bodies, their hands, and their musical styles.
Yvonne moved on to created Luna guitars, a line of guitars made for female musicians of all ages and crafted with luminous visual beauty to engage women's minds and spirits along with their talent. Yvonne already had brilliant artistic skills and use of colour, she then applied the same techniques as she did with her award winning stained glass work to her new line of guitars. She is known for using rich colours that shimmer and shine with every movement providing an eye-catching design along with the great musical tones Luna guitars deliver.
Yvonne's design expertise has led so many men to respond to Luna's well-crafted, spirit-engaging instruments that the company now creates guitars for both female and male musicians of all ages.
