The Venus Blood Moon is a beau­ti­ful in­stru­ment that 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.
