X10

A GUITAR THAT DOES IT ALL — WITHOUT COMPROMISE

The effortless neck of an electric; the uncompromising, full-bodied tone of a world-class acoustic. The X10 is a truly world-class acoustic guitar AND a world-class electric guitar in one instrument.

1. Introducing the X10

Precision. Playability. Power. Combining the two worlds of acoustic and electric

The feel, sound, and full voice of an acoustic blended with the rich, powerful, feedback-resistant tone of an electric, the X10 combines the two worlds of acoustic and electric into a single guitar without compromising either. With a slim 24-fret neck, a fully adjustable bridge, and a perfectly-contoured body, the X10 is the most playable acoustic guitar ever made. Fly effortlessly across the slim neck while enjoying rich, resonant acoustic tone that rivals any traditional acoustic guitar.

2. Colours

Your guitar, your colour. Take your pick.

The X10 is available in 5 different colors as part of our standard artisan collection: black, amber, red, green, and blue. A high-quality top coat is also applied for a smooth, resilient, and vibrant gloss finish.

3. Veneers

Take your X10 even further with our Exotic Custom Wood Veneers.

Get the natural beauty of a wood guitar, but the strength and durability of carbon fibre. We offer a wide range of some of the finest exotic wood veneers from around the world. Through a unique molding process of fusing together the wood veneer with the carbon fire in one seamless form, you create an instrument that is truly exceptional and elegantly beautiful.

Veneer Examples

NB: All custom veneers require a consultation with one of our team before ordering.

We invite you to explore our library of available veneers and contact us with the name and reference number of your choice. We will then provide you photographs of the different ways we can position and cut your selected veneer for your chosen instrument.
