Crafter MoonLight Rose Acoustic Guitar

Love at first sight!

Do you believe in love at first sight? If you don’t, I have something here that will change your mind and might get your mouth-watering or perhaps hands-watering… The Crafter MoonLight Rose 30th Anniversary, which unfortunately has been discontinued. But for those who’ve seen or heard this guitar or had the pleasure of playing one, keep an eye on eBay and together let’s hope and pray that someone is willing to let theirs go.

This is not your typical guitar, and for those of you who are in the “I don’t like Crafter” camp, the Moonlight is well worth another look, because this is not a typical Crafter!

Aesthetically this guitar could not be better. It is absolutely stunning and if looks could kill, Crafter would be in big trouble. Yes people, I know and I freely admit it, I am in love with this Crafter!

Next big important question before marriage: So, does it sound as good as it looks? the answer is a resounding YES! The sound is very “sweet” but full bodied with a defined response, probably what most of you are looking for in a new guitar.

And what about feel?
This is the most controversial factor, but let me tell you, this guitar also feels as good as it looks. No doubt about it. Probably the only possible con…if you could call it that, is it being a little bit heavier compared to similar models, but nothing major and something you’ll get used to and will suit the guitarist who wants to know they’re actually holding a guitar.

A beautifully constructed guitar with a shattering, full-bodied sound. It sounds like a more expensive guitar – so how much is this one? From the Crafter site, this guitar costs $1099 USD. Not expensive at all specially for what you could get and let me tell you, this guitar sounds, looks and feels way better than some other guitars above the $1,500+ range.

But, as I said before, this is discontinued, it was a limited edition, but let’s be positive about seeing
some on eBay or any other online market soon. If you find one, don’t keep the link for yourself!
