The dreadnought reimagined with the player in mind.

Our signature dreadnought guitar, the X20 is designed for the guitarist searching for a rich and full acoustic sound. With its carbon fiber body ergonomically shaped to fit the player’s form, the X20 allows for long periods of comfortable performance.
The legacy continues. Since its release, the X20 has been Emerald Guitars’ most popular model. With subtle ergonomic refinements to the original X20 design, the newer model is an evolution, and another example of Emerald’s tradition of breaking tradition.The addition of the extended access neck design and a subtle rib bevel help with ergonomics and feel, and the contoured fretboard end and redesigned pinless bridge gave it a fresh new look – while still retaining the essence of the original X20.

Hi-Tech Carbon

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.

Weather Resistant

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.

X20 - The tone is amazing

This is my first carbon fiber guitar and I love it!! When my X20 arrived the build quality, setup, fit, and finish were flawless. The tone is amazing and the neck fits my hands perfect. Since I live in an extremely dry climate, I like the fact that I do not have to worry about keep the humidity at a certain level.
