What We Say

A Blood Moon with a twist, the Blue Moon is a striking looking take on the best selling Venus Blood Moon. It's different in that it's blue which you probably already figured out but hey, I have to write something. The Blood Moon is a fine sounding and immaculately built compact body guitar with a great pickup system, so it's ideal as a stage guitar whether you're playing open mics or big venues. THe Venus body size, which is a little more compact than a 000 but relatively deep, is big enought to be nicely resonant unplugged but small enough to feel very comfortable on a strap. It's a strong statement but if you like the colour blue about as cool as a guitar can get.

What they say

The Venus Blue Moon is a beautiful instrument which uses only the finest, figured Javanese Trembesi for the top, back and sides. This indigenous Indonesian timber has long been used by furniture makers for its stunning appearance, but we have been convinced of its tonal properties for a good while too.

Not unlike Hawaiian Koa, a solid Trembesi instrument reacts in a similar way to Mahogany, delivering warmth and balance across the strings, while still having a little rosewood-eque sparkle at the top end.

The exclusive 'Blood Moon' burst finish and solid flamed maple binding serves to enhance its stunning appearance further.

Each guitar will have its own distinct figuring: Some with straight, pronounced verticle grains; Some with horizontal 'flaming'; and even some with a combination of the two. But regardless of the individual figuring of each model, the tone will be wonderful, and the appearance will be truly unique.
