Luna Steel Magnolia Resonator Guitar Review

This review was submitted by Guitar Jar contributor: Edward Sott

Having recently purchased the Steel Magnolia, I have decided to write a quick review of the instrument.

…shimmering body, shines like a brand new nickel, creating a shiny, glowing, almost angelic appearance to the instrument…

Features & Sound Quality:

Luna Steel Magnolia Resonator GuitarThe construction of the Steel Magnolia is beyond excellent, the welds are seamless, the metal used (which is a very thin brass plated with nickel) is an excellent choice for sound quality resonation from the body. The head is so incredible that you don’t even need to plug her in to get great tone.

The Split style F-holes, with the most gorgeous etching I’ve seen of the magnolia branch running up to the top of the sound hole is beautiful, adding a touch of grace to the instrument, which is further enhanced by the lovely etching of the moon and magnolia branch on the back.

The shimmering body, as the advertisement states, shines like a brand new nickel, creating a shiny, glowing, almost angelic appearance to the instrument.

The mahogany neck is absolutely gorgeous as well, having a high gloss finish very smooth, easily handled contour and incredible wood grain.

The rosewood fretboard is like in most of the other Luna’s; a very lovely fine grained solid fretboard with the mother of pearl moon shaped inlays, enhances this instruments beauty.

The gold plated grover tuners provide not only an elegant appearance to the head stock but also maintain tuning with precision.

The gold lipstick Piezo pickup and the Gold resonator accent not only the sound quality of the instrument but also the appearance, and beauty of the instrument with the gold tone/volume knobs accented with a mother of pearl top, complete the ambience to make this instrument a work of art and a perfection of the artists and musicians craft.

Overall Rating:

All and all this instrument rates on a scale of 1 to 10 ten being the best a 50 as far as I’m concerned.

So if you wish to have this wonderfully voiced, gorgeous, graceful, angel added to your collection, I would say you would not be disappointed.

Another Luna which I’m madly in love with.

  • Very Nice … I like the look of the Luna gypsy range too – does anyone know who the uk distributor is?

  • Many thanks

    Checking them out now

    Prices are pretty reasonable

  • Thanks for the review, it looks like just what I was looking for myself.
    Am I right in thinking it has a Piezo and magnetic pickups, and a blend control?
    Is there only one output, or stereo?

    Thanks again,
    Rick

  • Great looking guitar,can anybody tell me what type of body i.e.wood or steel would sound good for slide and also ragtime fingerpicking.
