Jamie Dupuis has knocked it out of the park again with his latest harp guitar piece on his Synergy X20 harp guitar by Emerald Guitars Custom Shop.
In his new YouTube video (watch above), Jamie Dupuis has recorded an instrumental version of the1985 Tears For Fears hit Everybody Wants To Rule The World on his Emerald harp guitar.
Jamie said: “My Synergy X20 is getting a lot of people/fans curious, as many have never seen a carbon fibre harp guitar. I’ve already also recorded some original material with the Emerald that will be on my next upcoming album. I really enjoy the clarity that it brings to my recordings!”
The award-winning Canadian fingerstyle guitarist first revealed his new custom shop harp guitar last month with a cover version of Metallica’s The Unforgiven which has notched up over 25,000 views on YouTube already.
The world really took note of Jamie Dupuis when his instrumental version of Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb on the harp guitar went viral and so we were already big fans when he contacted us about the possibility of building him a harp guitar.
Jamie was looking for a harp guitar that he would not be afraid of travelling with and that’s when he began looking into carbon fibre and decided to contact us here in Ireland.
His query came around the same time that we were about to unveil the Synergy X20 and so, following detailed consultation, it was decided that we would build him a custom version of our new full size harp guitar.
Jamie’s Synergy X20 harp guitar is an Emerald Custom Shop model – It is black and has a full gloss finish on all surfaces, Gotoh 510 (18:1 Ratio) tuners and three different pickup systems with three separate outputs to suit Jamie’s recording and performance needs – A Sixtus Longbar pickup under the sub bass strings, an LR Baggs M1 (Passive) under the guitar strings and an iMix pickup system featuring two Element undersaddle piezos, one for each neck.
