Spruce & Mahogany Construction for Classic Sound
Spruce and mahogany together are often a classic and first choice among guitarists, as the individual tones blended together offer a versatile, rich, and resonant tonal character that is well-suited to a huge range of genres. The Heartsong 12 String's select spruce top generates a versatile tone that also offers a broad dynamic range, with deep lows, focused mid-range, and sweet singing highs. Its brightly toned spruce top is coupled with mahogany back and sides for added warmth. The mahogany back and sides deliver a meaty mid-range whilst producing punchy, woody tones with plenty of depth and complexity to please most playing styles.
Mahogany Neck & Rosewood Fingerboard
Constructed from mahogany, the Heartsong's neck provides players with plenty of resonance and great durability. The mahogany neck responds greatly to many different styles of play and numerous techniques with ease, and will project the Heartsong's 12 string tone beautifully. This comfortable C shaped neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard for a smooth and energetic play, as well as delivering its own unique tonal properties for players to enjoy. These tonal properties include a stunning sonic warmth, with a hint of bright sizzling-sparkle that really shines through when using fingerpicking techniques. Its rosewood fingerboard is sprinkled with pearloid music notation inlays for added elegance.
The Heartsong 12 String comes equipped with a Fishman Isys+ USB preamp, which provides players with the option to shape their tone for live and rehearsal environments. Simply plug in to an amp or P.A system and listen to your acoustic's natural tonal character come alive through this sophisticated and compact system. The preamp features rotary controls for bass, treble, and volume, as well as a phase button, and the added convenience of a built-in tuner.
The USB output jack which makes the Heartsong series so special. With this output, you need never worry about losing song ideas again, simply plug in and record directly into your device. It is iOS, compatible along with a range of smartphone recording apps, and no external power is required as the output is self-powered via the preamp's 9-volt battery, so you can use it no matter where you are.
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.
