The Story of Luna

Luna Guitars is the creation of Yvonne de Villiers, an accomplished stained-glass artist whose greatest inspiration is her mother, Hilda, a bass player with a number of popular rock groups.

Luna Founder, Yvonne de Villiers

Yvonne watched her pioneering mother's physical struggle with a bass guitar during her 40-year career, reasoned that there must be more like her, and set about creating a line of guitars that were uniquely tailored to fit different players' bodies, hands, and musical styles. Further, Yvonne sought to rescue musicians from the drudgery of "me too"-looking guitars, and proposed a radical new approach to guitar cosmetics.

The result is Luna Guitars - comfortable instruments made for musicians of all ages and crafted with a luminous visual beauty to engage minds and spirits along with talent.

Yvonne's artistic skill has given her a 25-year career producing award-winning architectural stained glass - she calls it "sculpting light" - and that same artistic eye brings to life the exquisitely delicate inlaid designs and unique ornamentation that make Luna Guitars so visually stunning.

Today, Luna is one of the fastest-growing guitar brands in the world, inspiring guitarists from across a vast musical spectrum, from folk to metal, country to R&B, and sidemen to American Idols.
