Reviews

  1. Doug Dalgarno

    Love my X20 Opus Lefty and Sean was excellent to work with, he answered all of my emails promptly and with lots of detail. Emerald also prepared my guitar for the installation of a K&K Pure Mini pickup (installed by myself) by drilling the 1/2 inch peg hole and sanding the inside of the guitar under the bridge. Love the fact that I don’t have to worry about humidity and temperature and can play this outside without worry of it checking like one of my $3000 nitro finished guitars did. Sound is a bit brighter than my wood guitar, but the bass strings ring out true and I think the brightness comes from hearing the trebles not being muted by wood so maybe a truer balanced sound. I did replace the D’Addario strings with Martins and that helped as I found the D’Addario’s to be too bright. Now saving my coins to get the X20 Nylon Opus.
