The Star-Spangled X20

Robert Mizzell, is a successful Country music artist originally from Shreveport, Louisiana, but living in Ireland. In 2016 he contacted Emerald Guitars to get a custom guitar made for him. His brief was simple, he wanted a guitar featuring a vintage look American flag. Alistair Hay commissioned Phil Atkinson, an airbrush artist based in Carrick-on-Shannon, Co Leitrim, to create the stunning artwork.

Everyone who knows me in Ireland, knows that I’m American, so by walking out on stage with this guitar, I don’t have to tell people now, the guitar tells the story for me. It is absolutely fabulous.”
