A few days before Christmas, Tristan asked if I had any extra guitar cases for acoustic guitars. I had a gig bag I told her she could have. The next day she said she didn’t need the gig bag after all because the guitar they were going to give to Craig’s nephew for Christmas was broken. I told her I’d donate a guitar for them to give him for Christmas. Of course, that meant I needed to replace the guitar. A few weeks before Christmas, Marina “adopted” a wolf for us at the Wolf Conservation Center in New York as a gift. His name is Mosby. When I was looking for a replacement guitar I remembered that Luna made a Wolf guitar. I found a Luna Wolf Guitar and ordered it.
The Wolf Conservation Center sent a video of Mosby howling with two other wolves who are off-camera. I recorded music to Mosby’s howling in the video yesterday using a jazz guitar and my 7-string guitar for the rhythm guitars. As luck has it, my Luna Wolf Guitar came in today, and the full Wolf Moon rose tonight. When I got home from work, I recorded a track with the wolf guitar and replaced the jazz guitar track with the track I played on the Wolf guitar. Then I went out to the river and photographed the Wolf Moon rising.
The Lobo Lunatic playing the Luna Wolf Guitar with the Wolf Moon rising behind him.
A full view of the Luna Wolf Guitar. It has Rosewood back and sides and the collage on the top is made with Rosewood, Zebrawood, Paduk, Bird’s Eye Maple, Koa, and Flame Maple. The neck markers are the moon phases with the full moon at the 12th fret. It has Fishman electronics and a built-in tuner. It’s a really beautiful guitar. It plays well and sounds great.

Oh my goodness, that wolf guitar is stunning, Tim. Just gorgeous. Great video and pics are always amazing. Especially the moon shots.
Thanks, Jeff. I’m really happy the guitar came in today.
Welcome, Tim. I bet. It’s awesome.
I enjoyed the video and music, Tim. Mosby is a handsome wolf, as are his friends. That is one very beautiful wolf guitar.
Thanks, Lavinia. I really like the guitar and Mosby. It’s fun to have a wolf.
That is a gorgeous guitar! Wolves are amazing – how cool that Marina adopted a wolf for you two. Yours is now a star!! 🐺🤩
Oh my, Tim! Ths music with Mosby howling is wonderful.
Those moon shots with you and your stunning guitar are outstanding.
I do wolves. They are a fav animal of mine so you can also bet I loved this.
Thanks, Shey. You and Marina love the wolves.
Great looking guitar and that guy in the photograph, well, he looks like a real rock star!
Thanks, Herman. I think he looks a bit like a shabby folk musician aspiring to be a rock star.
But he definitely looks very happy with his guitar…
Laurie didn’t think I looked happy enough. Thanks for the happy note.
THe Moon man, skies and wolves… Love it!
I just agree with everything my predecessors wrote above Timothy.
Ah… the Man, the Moon and Mosby (and friends): crazy wonderful, all of it! I love the video with your music. Sounds brilliant with the wolf gtr. Have you sent it to the WCC? Guitar is gorgeous and of course painter couldn’t be away for the occasion!
Thanks, Marina. I’ll have to send them a link.
Oh my word you did so much work last night.
Of course it was full moon and i never seen any of it.
My room is on the wrong side of the sky to observe the moon at night.
Mobsy has a musical howl, …lol.
That’s a great conservatory you are working with, they are so helpful.
Makes me kind of sad now, for missing out on the glory of a full moon. Your moon skies are otherworldly.
What a great looking guitar. I love the wood. I wonder how a jazz piece would come through.
Awesome post Timothy
Thanks, abvr. The guitar would work for jazz. You need to make an effort to walk out of the house to see the moon.
Lol, of course i do make the effort, and I always have gone outside to look at the moon.
It’s a little different now.
This post has something for everyone and most of our senses as well. Thanks, Tim.
Thanks, Maj & Sher. I’m happy you enjoyed it.
Very cool video and a beautiful guitar!
Neat video. And that guitar is so cool! Great moon shots with you and the guitar.
Have a great Tuesday!
Wolf Crazy, that’s what you are … until the February full moon, then you’ll be Snow Crazy, LOL.
We could use snow or rain. Thanks, David.
That is one gorgeous guitar you got there, wow! My electrics have scorpions on them .. now thinking wolves would be a nice addition (“Linda, can I get another g..” “NO!”)
Wives just don’t understand GAS. Thanks, Brian.
That is a stunning guitar…a work of art. I enjoyed the video—great guitar music, and along with the vocals provided by your wolf sounded better than today’s canned music. And that moon. Wow!
The wolves howl in compás, also. They were right on beat. Thanks, KT.
This is awesome. You and Mosby had a great duet going on there. Also, that guitar is a work of art! It is just stunning!
I am learning a lot about astronomy from your blog. I had never heard of a wolf moon or a beaver moon until I read your blog.
Thanks, JYP. I’m happy you liked the duet. The guitar is really art. The moon has a name each month. February is the Snow Moon. Sometimes there is not a full moon in February. When that happens The February moon is a Black Moon.
Wow a busy night with some great night entertainment from you Tim. What a great gift! 💖💖👏
All of this is brilliant, Tim. And your gift of the guitar was a lovely thing to do. Hugs on the wing!
That guitar has all of the woods! Sharp, Tim, reeeeeal clean lookin’ 😎
It’s like “Not Eeeeven!” You’ll have to give it a good strumming next time you are at the house. Thanks, Craig.
Wolf singing is the best. Janis Joplin was a wolf singer, if you know what I mean.
Go with the feel.
I love wolves.
I believe if I went into the wild, wolves and lions and all beasts would love me.
Norm says …. not!
I say … yeah!
The guitar is fabulous… wow!
You look pretty cool with that guitar.
Wonderful all around.
The wild beasts would love you and do as you told them. I really like the guitar. Thanks, Resa.
I do know how to run with the pack. Part of my early background is just that.
The guitar is beautiful… gorgeous!
That is some guitar! Loved the video.. Mosby sure likes howling!
You have no idea how much I enjoyed this one, Tim! I used to volunteer at a wolf sanctuary out in the desert, it was an amazing experience to be so close to wild animals!
Thanks, Tiffany. We have a wolf sanctuary in NM but it way out in the middle of nowhere. It’s really difficult to volunteer if you have a regular job.
Timothy, You have a wolf as a pet at home?? ❤️ A music is so good and wolf sound so great. You are not only a good photographer, a good compositor also 💖 I always wanted a wolf to have as a friend.
Hi Marinela (is that right?). The wolf is in a wolf sanctuary. If I had a wolf at home, I would post lots of photos of it. We only have cats, birds and a snake. Thanks.
Tnx. Just asked 😊 Snake means around a house or in terair 😁 I asked too much
The snake is a large boa constrictor. She and the cats and birds never mix. You can see her at: https://wp.me/p1yQyy-4RT. I don’t post many photos with her.
I remember that snake newer bite me, Tnx God. There are a lot of them at fathers land in West Herzegovina. When I was at father country house 2020, walking with dogs I was stand 10 centimetres from a large snake. Because I was picturing I didn’t notice her. I was still and watching a nature so after she moved to evening rest, she slowly moved her body in a stone hole I realised that she didn’t attacked me. I loudly thank her “thank you snake because you didn’t bite me” 🤗 It was vipera ammodytes, mostly seen snake there.
Snakes are not normally aggressive unless they feel threatened. The vipera ammodytes, also know as the horned viper, long-nosed viper, and sand viper, are large snakes with highly toxic venom making them very dangerous snakes.
Yes I know. I spent every school summer holidays at village so parents and grandparents told me so. We have a ambulance injection help against those snakes but unfortunately there is a lot of tragic cases of stupidity. My father is having antidote in the ampoule, prepared at country house, as emergency help for a him or dog if happens something like that. If those snake bite you, you have max 1 hour to get antidote.
We have all kinds of rattlesnakes that can deliver deadly bites. We have one antivenim now that covers almost all species of rattlesnakes. They also have a rattlesnake vaccine for dogs so if dogs are bitten, which is quite common, the bite isn’t as life-threatening for the dogs. You can meet a Diamondback rattlesnake at https://wp.me/p1yQyy-1rZ. Diamonback rattlesnakes’ venim is not super toxic, but they are such large snakes, they can deliver large amounts of venom, which makes them deadly. They are commonly well over 2 meters long, big and heavy-bodied snakes.
Yes. Marinela is my full name, Meli just nickname
Can I call you Meli then?
Yes, Timothy 🤗 You can
Very good. Thanks, Meli.
