Luna Guitars has unveiled its new Vista Eagle Tropical Wood acoustic-electric guitar.
The eye-catching instrument is headlined by a top built from a combination of padauk, koa, quilt mahogany and spalted maple. The top depicts an eagle in flight over a natural landscape.
The guitar also has a gloss-finished, flamed maple-bound, Grand Concert cutaway body with koa back and sides, a 25.5-inch scale mahogany neck and an ebony fingerboard with 20 frets and Pearl Moon Phase inlays. An ebony bridge, bone nut and sealed diecast tuners also come standard.
Sonically, the Vista Eagle packs a Fishman Presys+ (PRO-PSY-201) preamp, with a built-in tuner and EQ.
The Luna Guitars Vista Eagle Tropical Wood is available now - in six- and 12-string versions - for $729 (for the six-string) and $769 (for the 12-string), respectively. Both versions come with a leather-tooled hardshell case.
