7-string guitars have very much grown in popularity in recent years, so much so that we decided to add the X20-7 to our standard range and thanks to our carbon fibre construction we are able to bring you a beautiful looking and sounding 7-string at a very competitive price.
Over the years we have been perfecting our 7-string design and found fan frets to be the best solution to give even intonation and tension for the extra low B string. We have chosen a scale length of 27″ on the bass side running to 25 1/2″ on the treble side giving strong, defined bass notes and sweet trebles.
The X20 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 2″ 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 X20-7 is part of the monthly Emerald Custom Shop Select Series, a collection of instruments hand-selected by Alistair Hay. It features a Pao Ferro Woody veneer.
The X20-7 Select Series 9/17 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.
