Luna Trinity Guitar used by American Idol Finalist

Luna guitars presented to top 5 American Idol finalists as special gift from company founder

(Los Angeles, CA) May 15, 2008 - It began as a small company that simply wanted to make guitars that did more than appeal to the ears, eyes & hands, but also to an artists' body mind & spirit. On May 6th American Idol finalist Jason Castro performed using Luna's "Trinity" guitar and over 20 million people were introduced to the beauty & artistry of Luna Guitars.

Guitars individually chosen by Luna founder & lead designer Yvonne deVillers based upon their music & sensibilities and included a personal note from her. Here's what Yvonne had to say to each of the five finalists:

"I commend each of you for the courage you have shown in singing your note, finding your sweet spot, and daring to be who you are. There are ultimately two emotions....fear and love. Despite fear of failure, you have made the decision to be as bold as love! And no matter what fame or rewards you may gain from participation in American Idol or any future endeavors, I hope you are proudest of yourself for that fact. Ultimately it is all that matters. May the beauty you love always be what you do"

Founded in 2005, Yvonne's inspiration for Luna Guitars came originally from her Mother. A noted bass player, Yvonne watched her pioneering mom perform in a popular rock group but couldn't help but notice the physical struggle that petite Hilda went through each time she'd strap on a heavy electric bass and take the stage to play the music she loves. With a background as an award-winning stained glass artist and a passion for detail, Yvonne set about creating a line of ground-breaking instruments and Luna Guitars was born - comfortable instruments made for musicians of all ages and crafted with a luminous visual beauty to engage minds and spirits along with talent.

We would like to thank all those at American Idol responsible for allowing us the honor of sharing the guitars with the talented finalist and for reminding the world that indeed, dreams can come true.
