The Fauna Phoenix Acoustic-Electric Black Guitar from Luna

December 2, 2020

Luna Guitars’ Fauna Phoenix Acoustic-Electric Black depicts a soaring bird in abalone against the black lacquer-look finish of this cutaway folk-style instrument. Built with high-quality materials and equipped with a Fishman preamp and onboard built-in tuner, the Fauna Phoenix offers superb playability with a classic 25 1/2’’ scale length and an elegant 20-fret pau ferro fretboard with 12’’ radius. The select spruce top and mahogany back and sides combine for a full-range sound that resonates fully, whether strumming or fingerpicking. The set-neck construction allows resonance to transfer more freely between the mahogany C-shaped neck, supported by dual-action truss rod, and the grand concert cutaway body reinforced with 3-ply binding.

Double-layered Face Masks from Gator

November 17, 2020

Gator introduced new multi-use double-layered face masks. Originally, the masks were designed for musicians to allow them to play their instruments while wearing a mask that helps reduce the spread of aerosols. The patent-pending design adheres to recommendations from the NFHS study on aerosols. The masks, however, quickly became the perfect mask for lifestyle and leisure activities for anyone because its front-flap opening allows for eating and drinking while still wearing the mask. The masks are available in youth and adult sizes and have adjustable straps for comfort. The masks are also reusable and hand-washable.
