Raising the standard for acoustic basses.
One of the most powerful acoustic basses ever made, the Balor will challenge everything you thought you knew about acoustic basses.
Not only is the Balor the first acoustic bass with enough volume and projection to excel as an acoustic instrument, it also happens to be one of the most lightweight and comfortable bass guitars ever made. Ergonomic contouring on its carbon fiber body makes the Balor bass feel like an instrument half its size. With an arm bevel, rib bevel, angled side and a heel-less neck design that gives effortless access to the 24th fret, the Balor feels incredibly comfortable in the hands of the player – without sacrificing any of the tone that a great acoustic bass should have.

We use the highest quality Gotoh Res-O-Lite GB350 Bass Machine Heads tuners with 20:1 ratio and unsurpassed build quality
Carbon Fiber Bridge
We machine our unique bridges from a solid billet of carbon fibre creating a beautiful aesthetic design that transfers the string energy efficiently into the soundboard
Carbon fiber is now used in all the most high tech industries from Aerospace to Formula one Racing where strength and weight is paramount. In fact it was in Formula One Power Boat racing that we discovered that the properties of carbon fiber are also perfectly suited to guitar making creating a lightweight structure that holds up under the tension of the strings while resonating freely with the lightest touch.
If you have ever traveled with a guitar you will know just how much temperature and humidity changes can effect the structure, tuning stability and tone of a guitar. This is where carbon fibre construction really excells. Now you can take your guitar from a cold car to a warm stage without worrying that your going to go out of tune after the first strum.
Unique Manufacturing Process
Intricacy is our excellence. Our signature one-piece moulding process delivers a guitar that is both incredibly strong and stable, resulting in fewer trips to your local luthier. The entire neck and body of Emerald Guitars are moulded together resulting in no joints becoming weak or failing over time whilst delivering impeccable resonance and sustain.

Chimaera - a great and versitle instrument
I have had the chimaera for a week – already used it at one gig. I’ll be recording with it soon. This is such a great and versitle instrument for a one-man band. I am really enjoying playing it and thinking about cool ways to use two necks. I am calling it DT with a nod to SRV.
