Product Description

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.

    Me…yup Me! I am the proud owner of this Amber Emerald! I was requesting information and Sean sent this photo and I was done. Took a week to get here a beautiful, magnificent instrument! Like it was made for me! The fit and finish, flawless. The initial setup, perfect. The playability, amazing. I wanted a carbon fiber 12-string to accompany me to Mexico a land not conducive to wooden guitar ‘wellness’. Honestly I will never purchase another wooden guitar. The separation and endless sustain, the booming lows and crisp clean highs are amazing, I love my Taylor, but this sure enables me to let her go! Now my wife wants an Emerald of her own, so her Taylor JKSM will be next to go! No buyers remorse here…I want my wife to have hers now!
