Chimaera Artisan (Stock Item)

€2,950.00

This guitar is in stock and available for immediate delivery. 

Double neck acoustic guitars are a rare commodity and so big was the demand for our Chimaera when we first started building it that we added it to the standard range in 2014. It is made using our unique one-piece moulding technology, making it incredibly strong and stable with absolutely no joints to fail. This strength allows the instrument to be lighter in construction with a top that is delicate and responsive, yet stiff enough to resist the pull of all 18 strings.

Description

Double neck acoustic guitars are a rare commodity and so big was the demand for our Chimaera when we first started building it that we added it to the standard range in 2014.

It is made using our unique one-piece moulding technology, making it incredibly strong and stable with absolutely no joints to fail. This strength allows the instrument to be lighter in construction with a top that is delicate and responsive, yet stiff enough to resist the pull of all 18 strings.

Carbon has also allowed us to create a much more ergonomic design with a slim-contoured body that fits comfortably whether playing the Chimaera on your knee or with a strap. And with the staggered neck design it puts each neck in exactly the right place as you transition between them.

This blue Chimaera Artisan has full gloss finish on all surfaces, Gotoh 510 tuners (18:1 ratio), a custom-designed LR Baggs Element pickup system and comes with a custom Emerald gig bag.

    Ok. I wasn’t too thrilled about buying a 3k dollar guitar without seeing it or playing it. I messaged back and forth with my concerns, Alistair took the time to address my concerns by text and phone calls to me in the US. I bought this guitar in May 2018 and I didn’t want to review it until I was sure of what I was going to write. Here goes. Absolutely beautiful instrument, I found one tiny divot on the top of the neck with the light just right and knowing where to look, it is that minor. That is close to perfect as you can get in my eyes. No complaints. The action us great. Sustain like there’s no tomorrow. Tone for both necks and the volume acoustically is right where it should be. I had them install Schaller straplocks on it. It shipped on Friday and I received it on the next Thursday in Louisiana. I had to tune 4 of the 18 strings when I pulled it out of the box. 2 issues that come to mind are 1 standing up it is neck heavy not terrible just noticeable (because there are 2 necks) so I have to keep hold of the guitar while standing. 2 changing the strings is time consuming probably because there is 18 of them. I might install Sperzels for convenience. Absolutely wonderful instrument. It’s fun to switch between necks without grabbing another guitar.
    I can’t brag enough about this guitar. I did spend 1900 bucks on another Emerald model guitar 5 weeks later and was just as impressed with it too. Awesome guitar.
    Need to find a hard shell case for it.
