    Default New 19" option? Luna VMT?

    Has anybody seen one of these in the wild?

    All spec sheets say 19" scale and the video demo says that to. Doesn't seem right though as all their other tenors are the standard 17"

    My experience with Luna has been hit or miss, more miss than hit I'd say. I can't find any reviews if this one either which also makes me suspicious.

    Looking at the body to neck ratio, it looks like an ordinary tenor, however, as they state 19" (483mm), I'd say it was a small baritone, with what used to be baritone scale length - note, though, that it's only got 16 frets!

    Looks & sounds like a tenor in their video.

    It's a standard scale tenor. I measured it from the picture assuming 35mm nut width (listed 33mm is also bogus or it would have 16").

    Ooh, a scientific answer. I love it!
