X20 Nylon Black MIDI
- CLIENT Mort (Connecticut, USA)
- WE DID Nylon String, Bridge, Pickup, Design
I had been looking for a full-size nylon string classical guitar for over a decade. I was already familiar with purchasing custom-made classicals, but I was hoping for carbon fiber. One more Google search and I found Emerald Guitars. Alistair was great to work with. The X20 was the ideal shape and I wanted a cutaway. Most importantly, I wanted a full-size 2" classical neck that was attached to the body at the 12th fret. He was happy and willing to do it all. Along with the RMC MIDI pickup. When it arrived, I took it out of the case and 'inspected' it. Marvelled is probably a better word. It was gorgeous. And curvy. A clear, rich voice. Since I got it I've brought it to Japan. I'm now outside of Washington DC with it in the backseat of my car. I'm about to put on my fourth set of strings. A different kind every time. I am just thrilled with this guitar.
