Synergy X20 Nylon Woody Harp Guitar

Brian’s Synergy X20 Nylon Woody Harp Guitar is a perfect example of what we are able to do here at Emerald Custom Shop. We had just revealed our new full size harp guitar when Brian contacted us from New York with the request for us to building him a nylon-string version of our new carbon fiber harp guitar. On top of that he had also fallen in love with our cocobolo veneers. We made the soundboard lighter to be able to add the Woody veneer and the final result was a nylon harp guitar with the most amazing tone.

"The Synergy X20 Nylon Woody is without equal in my 25 years of playing. Emerald Guitars takes their time to do things right, and the end-result is better than I could possibly prepare you for. I plan on buying another, and another. For acoustics, there is no one close.”
