Over the years we have been perfecting our 7-string design and found fan frets to be the best solution to give even intonation and tension for the extra low B string. For this nylon version of the X20-7 we have chosen a scale length of 27″ on the bass side running to 25 1/2″ on the treble side giving strong, defined bass notes and sweet trebles.
The X20 is a guitar designed with the player in mind and not tradition. It features an ergonomic forearm bevel and a beveled cutaway to give even greater access to the fretboard. Our unique asymmetrical back contours make the X20 sit more comfortably and securely on your knee.
The neck has a very comfortable C profile with a 2 1/8″ nut and the heel is reduced in profile to give better access to the higher frets.
Tonally this guitar has a big voice, We developed a new laminate structure to give it a richer fuller sound and with the unique soundhole placement it gives great projection to the player, while still giving your audience the fullness of your performance.
This X20-7 Nylon is part of the monthly Emerald Custom Shop Select Series, a collection of instruments hand-selected by Alistair Hay. It features a Royal Ebony veneer and black carbon back and sides.
