The X20 is a perfect platform for going beyond the standard 6-string and with the X20-12 being the best sounding 12-string we have ever heard, we decided to add it to our standard range.

Carbon fibre offers offers much better 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.

The X20-12 is a guitar designed with the player in mind and not tradition. It 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.

The neck has a very comfortable shallow C profile with a 1 15/16″ nut and the heel is reduced in profile to give better access to the higher frets. Tonally this guitar has a big voice, We developed a new laminate structure to give it a richer fuller sound and with the unique soundhole placement it gives, great projection to the player, while still giving your audience the fullness of your performance.

This X20-12 Baritone is part of the monthly Emerald Custom Shop Select Series, a collection of instruments hand-selected by Alistair Hay. It features a lacewood Woody veneer with amber carbon back and sides.

The X20-12 Baritone Select Series 2/18 has full gloss finish on all surfaces, an LR Baggs Element Active System-VTC™ pick-up and comes with a custom Hiscox Lite Flite Case.
