Select Series: October 2018 Collection

 The select series had become a monthly highlight both for us and our customers but due to our focus on developing and launching 3 new models we decided we needed to press pause on the Select series for a few months.  

For the October 2018 Select Series we kick things off again with some very special Candy stripe Padauk veneer which has beautiful deep red marbling which matches well with the red carbon back and sides. The series features 3 of our new models , X7, X10 and X30 along with an Amicus, X20 and X20 twelve string


The new redesigned X7 offers a beautifully ergonomic body with 24” scale, extended access cutaway and full and balanced tone the defies its compact proportions. Some think smaller guitars are good for traveling but we feel they are just as good when sitting at home on your favourite chair.


The X10 is one of the most comfortable and versatile guitars available on the market today, With its slim profile neck and sculpted body its a dream to play but when you plug it in thats when the real magic happens. This X10 features our Level 2 pickup system combining 6 individual piezo pickups at the bridge with a custom made Krivo Humbucker at the end of the neck. 


 The X30 is a full bodied Jumbo with a generous 17” lower bout but due to our carbon fibre moulding technology and innovative ergonomic approach the X30 feels incredibly comfortable to play with tone offering thunderous bass response yet still surprisingly balanced across all registers. 


The X20 has been our best selling guitar for the past 5 years due to its great ergonomics and versatile tone. The X20 has a very balanced tone across all registers, responsive when fingerpicked and powerful when strummed heavily. 


Carbon fibre offers great 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 all wood counterpart


The Amicus brings a whole new tone and dynamic to your guitar playing without having to learn a whole new instrument. It has an 18” scale tuned up to D (same as having a capo on the 10th fret) giving a Mandolin type sound but with much more depth an dynamic.
