Select Series: July 2017 Collection

Every month Alistair chooses one of the many custom possibilities to highlight through the Emerald Custom Shop Select Series. This month he has chosen a beautiful collection of Royal Ebony veneers.

Alistair chose to feature this popular custom option on an X7, an X20, X20 Lefty, Amicus and a Chimaera, all in black carbon with a full gloss finish on all surfaces.

This month Alistair went for another first, choosing to feature Royal Ebony veneers with black carbon back and sides on an X7, two X20s, an X20-12 and a Chimaera double neck acoustic.

The X20 A is on sale exclusively at this year's Boutique Guitar Showcase at Summer NAMM in Nashville, TN, 13th-15th July.

 X7

Thanks to its carbon fibre construction, offset soundhole and responsive soundboard, it has a very big voice. Many of our customers use it as their main instrument on and off stage.

 X20 A

The X20 features an ergonomic forearm bevel and a beveled cutaway to give even greater access to the fretboard. Our unique asymmetrical back contours make the X20 sit more comfortably and securely on your knee.

 X20 B

The X20 features an ergonomic forearm bevel and a beveled cutaway to give even greater access to the fretboard. Our unique asymmetrical back contours make the X20 sit more comfortably and securely on your knee.

 X20-12

Carbon fibre offers great structural strength and stability which makes it perfect for 12-string guitars. 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.

 Chimaera

Double neck acoustic guitars are a rare commodity and so big was the demand for our Chimaera when we first started building it that we added it to the standard range in 2014. It is made using our unique one-piece moulding technology, making it incredibly strong and stable with absolutely no joints to fail.
