4,600.00

This guitar is currently in stock and ready for shipping.

The Kestrel occupies unique territory in the archtop world, offering the rich, unique sound of a traditional electric archtop while providing a lively acoustic response not normally associated with such classic instruments. The pinnacle of elegance made possible by Emerald’s innovative one-piece carbon fiber construction, the Kestrel features an incredibly lightweight ergonomic design with highly sculpted bevels and angled sides for ultimate comfort and playability. Detailed craftsmanship is evident in the classic “f” holes, handmade slotted headstock, and a hand-carved carbon fiber tailpiece that floats virtually unseen above the surface.

This Kestrel artchtop is part of the August 2019 Select Series — a collection of instruments with custom features hand selected each month by Alistair Hay. This guitar features a striking and beautifully figured Royal Ebony wood veneer with black carbon back and sides.

This Kestrel has a polyester finish on all surfaces, Schertler open gear tuners, a Krivo Micro-Stealth PAF-Style pickup, and comes with a custom Hiscox Lite Flite Case.
