This gorgeous uke is one of Luna's "High Tide Series" which is a high end range from their collection. It is visually stunning and I personally love the cutaway ukes. This uke feels super comfortable to play.
Each part of the uke is very well put together, especially the wood and rosette combination. The intonation was very close to perfect when we tested it.
All Luna ukes have an inspiration behind them, this particular series has the fretmarkers being waves that are rising as they get closer to the moon which is on the headstock.
Overall it has a high end sound to it which you would expect at this price point. If you love the look of it, I am sure you will also like the tone of this uke

Before I start, I want to say a big thank you to Joel and the team for working with me after I made my order to make sure that I had exactly what I wanted to meet my expectations. You did an excellent job.
I have had my Luna HighTide Tenor for about four weeks now, and I must say I love it! It plays beautifully, the neck is slim, and the satin finish allows easy navigation of the fretboard. I wondered if the wave-shaped fret inlays would make it harder to sight, but they cause no issue.
The sound this Ukulele makes is beautiful, out of the box, it has a lovely mellow tone with beautiful punchy high notes that are just exquisite. However, I was looking for a low G setup, and Joel recommended the Aquilia Sugar Low G set. After two weeks of playing, I switched them over and just wow. Between these strings and this Ukulele, the timbre is just amazing. The clarity of the sound a sustain of notes is phenomenal. I would highly recommend this Ukulele and string setup.
My only criticism with this Ukulele is the bag, sorry Luna, but there is not an ounce of padding in it. At this price point, it would have been nice for something a little better. I had read this about the Luna brand expected this. It did not and would not stop me from being this instrument.
All ukuleles under $1000 are made in China. There are a handful of instruments made in the USA/Australia but they come with a hefty price tag and aren't always worth the price. Often the more affordable instruments are just as good, if not better. At ukulelemate, we have tested thousands of instruments and found the sweetspot where quality meets value.
