Select Series: February 2018 Collection

For the second instalment of the 2018 Emerald Custom Shop Select Series, Alistair is bringing you two firsts - As well as introducing you to lacewood veneer, this is also the first time that all instruments featured double string courses.

The February 2018 Emerald Custom Shop Select Series collection features an Amicus, X7-12, X20-12, X20-12 Baritone and a Balor Bass 8-string all featuring lacewood veneers, amber carbon back and sides and LR Baggs Element Active System™-VTC pickups.

 Amicus

The Amicus is a short scale 12-string which allows you to create a completely new sound with your guitar-playing. Imagine not having to learn any new chords, but playing a sound that is more reminiscent of a mandolin.

X7-12

The X7 gives you a very compact and playable 12-string with a small body that is very comfortable to hold. Short scale length allows for lower tension and closer fret spacing for easier chord stretches.

X20-12

The strength of carbon allows us to make a soundboard that is both light and responsive and its stability and resistance to temperature and humidity create a 12-string that stays in tune much better than its wooden counterparts.

  X20-12 Baritone

The X20 with its offset soundhole design really helps accentuate the bass notes making it a perfect platform for lower tunings such as baritone. The 27″ scale for the X20-12 Baritone gives it a nice bottom end without creating too much tension in the treble strings.

 Balor-8

We have created the world’s loudest acoustic bass guitar with gut-rumbling low frequencies produced at a volume loud enough to compete in any acoustic jam session. For this month’s collection we bring you an 8-string version tuned EeAaDdGg.
