Solid Top – Solid Tone – Vintage Feel
In recent weeks, the new for 2020 Luna Art Vintage Jumbo Solid Top has made the rounds on publications, including features on Premier Guitar Magazine and Guitar World Magazine. As the perfect addition to the Vintage Series for 2020, the first-ever Luna Jumbo import adds a larger-than-life appeal and sizable sophistication. With its distinctive rustic looks, thunderous tone, and solid-built construction, the Art Vintage Jumbo is designed to stand out. Songwriters and musicians can expect a rich, natural tone, but can easily amplify their sound and dial it in quickly with the onboard Fishman preamp system with onboard tuner.
From the writer’s room to gigging artists and seasoned players, this guitar is built with the musician’s that need a reliable road-dog to take along their journey. Big vintage tone starts with vintage design and materials that are made for the long haul. For the Art Vintage Jumbo, Luna selected strong mahogany for the traditional jumbo body and solid spruce for the flat top. These materials, finished in Distressed Vintage Brownburst and united with multi-ply cream binding, create rich definition from note to note with plenty of presence and unique character when playing rhythmic chords.
Offering excellent playability and wear resistance, the pau ferro fretboard has 20 frets and a 15″ radius for comfortable, clean playing. The desirable pau ferro is also used for the bridge, where a cream saddle and pins contrast the dark wood. The Art Vintage Jumbo’s sturdy mahogany neck (25 1/2’’ scale) has set-neck construction with a dual-action truss rod.
With a key focus on power and stability, this Jumbo features a Graph Tech NuBone nut (1.65’’ width). This derivative of Graph Tech’s highly resonant TUSQ material is manufactured to precise tolerances under high heat and pressure, making it extremely reliable. Vintage-style open gear tuners with brushed nickel hardware help to reflect Luna’s insignia on the dark brown headstock. Another signature focal point is Luna’s Pearloid Moon Phase fretboard inlays that shine brightly under stage lights.
The Art Vintage Jumbo is destined for live performance, and players will find just what they need with the Fishman Presys II Preamp with onboard tuner. This stage-ready system offers a clear, full sound that, combined with its comfortable profile and light weight, makes it a great choice for a variety of styles. All at an affordable MAP cost of $399.
