    SOLD - Luna (by Kiwaya) LS-4G

    It's basically like a kiwaya kts-4 (I have both). They sound a bit different, but more in the way that 2 different instruments from the same model sounds. Quality wise they are the same. 250 is a very good price for what you get.

    Intonation Sharp on C String
