Luna Guitars has announced the Vista Eagle Tropical Wood, an acoustic-electric guitar that combines quilt mahogany, padauk, bird’s eye maple, koa, and flame maple in its body construction – which portrays an eagle flying over a desert scenery.
The grand concert-sized guitar also uses mahogany for its neck, and ebony for its bridge and 20-fret fingerboard, which is adorned with pearl moon phase inlays.
For amplification, the Vista Eagle Tropical Wood comes equipped with a Fishman Presys+ preamp, giving you control over a three-band EQ, phase inverter and onboard tuner. Its hardware features are rounded up with a bone nut, sealed die cast tuners and dual-action truss rod.
The ornate design also appears on several other instruments from Luna Guitars, including a 12-string acoustic-electric guitar and a concert ukulele.
The Vista Eagle Tropical Wood comes in a leather-tooled hardshell case and is available now at $729 ($769 for the 12-string edition)
The guitar is the latest of some rather interesting acoustic guitars unveiled by the brand this year. It also announced the Woodland Bamboo Dreadnought in July, and the intricate Henna Dragon Spruce Acoustic back in March.
