    Default Is it still a luna tattoo?

    Okay, sorry for posting so quickly. This will probably be my only post for a while. I just couldn't the answer in the search.

    I bought a ukulele, and It's a luna (concert), and it has the normal tattoo designs, and I really like it. BUT all the photos I see online of them have a black painted headstock. Mine has an unpainted (finished) headstock, so you see the woodgrain.

    Is this just another manufacturing line, or what? Thanks!

    The only tattooed concert Luna with the wood grain headstock I see, and I've been known to be wrong several times a day, is the Maluhia model. Is this it???

    I get one tattoo concert at home, I swear it's not black. But I'll check when I'm home from work.

    Well, it has the same tattoo design as the tattoo...maluhia is a bit different. Maybe it's just different manufacturing lines. Maybe they switched at some point?

    I had a Luna tattoo as my first officially bought uke (before that it was hand-me-downs), and I do believe it had the black headstock.

    You should be happy you got the wood grain one. As much as I liked the look of the Luna, their headstock really bugged me. Way too much and over the top. The black with the ginormous LUNA on it just seemed like it was screaming for attention. A little subtlety can be a nice thing sometimes.

    True, it does look better. I'm just seeing if there is a difference between the different kinds. Oh well. The only problem I have with it the intonation. Not the greatest, but at 89$, still an awesome buy.

    My Luna soprano pineapple tattoo has a wood headstock. Kinda stripey grain, and it seems to be a veneer.

    I do dislike the bold logo.
