The Concert Ukulele is the slightly bigger sibling to soprano ukuleles. With a fuller tone and longer profile than the sopranos, the concert uke allows for more room between the frets. Today, this type of ukulele is one of the most popular body shapes among ukulele enthusiasts, with sopranos making a close 2nd. From exotic woods to signature designs, each Luna ukulele is carefully crafted to inspire.
The Soprano Ukulele is easily the most common type of ukulele many people see today. Due to its small nature and light size, soprano ukuleles are perfect for beginners or players with smaller hands being that the frets are closer together. Soprano ukuleles are most commonly tuned at GCEA. One can expect brighter and softer tone with every strum.

Tenor Ukuleles are a little larger and heavier but project tone much better than concert ukuleles. The larger size allows for more space along the neck and wider frets, making this uke handy for fingerpicking. For ukulele artists, this body style is the preferred choice simply due to those looking for richer tone and easier access to the upper fret registry. Tenor ukes are still an excellent choice for children, beginners or pros.
Think of the Baritone ukulele as the uke family’s biggest sibling and often times used as a travel guitar. Baritone ukuleles have wider neck profiles which offer more room between the frets, allowing for a much deeper and full tone. These ukes are also great for fingerpicking and carrying the band with that low sound. It’s a wonderful choice for pros, beginners or children alike – expect strong playability!

The Ukulele revival has ushered in a new era of acceptance and respect of this instrument as a world stage leader. The ukulele is commonly associated with music from Hawaii which according to Queen Liliʻuokalani, the last Hawaiian monarch, means “the gift that came here”, from the Hawaiian words uku (gift) and lele (to come). First developed in the late 1800s, the ukulele was based on several small guitar-like musical istruments of Portuguese origin to include the “machete” and the lesser known timple, rajao and cavaquinho. Ukuleles were later introduced to the Hawaiian Islands by Portuguese immigrants. Luna Guitars has modeled the inspiration behind our acoustic guitar line, and that result is the now world recognized Luna Ukulele.
