X30 Artisan

From: €1,925.00

The X30 is designed with one thing in mind and that is big acoustic tone.  This is a big guitar of that there is no doubt and it is the large body size, coupled with a refined carbon fibre soundboard design that gives this guitar such a big full tone. It has a thunderous bottom end yet still offers great balance across the full range.

Description

The X30 is designed with one thing in mind and that is big acoustic tone.  This is a big guitar of that there is no doubt and it is the large body size, coupled with a refined carbon fibre soundboard design that gives this guitar such a big full tone. It has a thunderous bottom end yet still offers great balance across the full range.

But where the X30 is truly different from all other jumbos is its ergonomics. The heavily sculpted body with arm bevel and rib bevel make the X30 feel much smaller than its dimensions would suggest and our extended access cutaway gives amazing higher fret access even though this is actually a 12 fret to body guitar.

Finally a jumbo that doesn’t just sound great but also feels great to play

The X30 Artisan is built to order and generally has a four-month lead time. The Artisan is available in black, amber, red, green and blue, or as a Woody, has full gloss finish on all surfaces, Gotoh 510 tuners (18:1 ratio), an LR Baggs Element Active System™ – VTC pick-up or upgrade to an LR Baggs Anthem™ and comes with a custom hard case and/or a custom padded gig bag.

    Emerald X30 Woody (Royal Ebony)

    I had my X30 for over a month now and got plenty of hours logged with it to do a proper review so I apologize if this is a little lengthy. First thing to mention is the look. I chose the royal ebony veneer and whatever the guys at Emerald did with this thing to give it the final touches is simply amazing. The way it blends in with the rest of the guitar is really a work of art. You can look at all the pictures in the world but they just can’t compare to how nice this thing actually looks in person. Combined with all the other design features such as the beveled cutaway, armrest, the contours in the back, the finished product is simply an engineering marvel that wooden guitar makers can only dream to achieve. The offset soundhole was initially my biggest worry when I bought this guitar and it turned out to be one of my favorite features. Not only does it give the guitar a unique look, it acts a monitor to the player while still projecting perfectly forward. I also tucked a pick holder and clip on tuner in there!

    As for comfort and playability, this is no doubt a big guitar with a big voice but if you watch Alistair’s youtube video he sums it up pretty good. Due to the ergonomics of this guitar it sits quite comfortably in your lap. The neck plays well all the way to the end thanks to the beveled cutaway and heelless neck joint.

    Next comes tone. When I first picked it up and strummed my first chord (most people choose G but I use E) I felt the vibration through my entire body. That plus I was expecting a really bright sound that is typically associated with carbon guitars but I was really surprised by how warm it sounded. I’ve since changed the stock strings to Elixir 80/20 bronze HD light as I had a set at home and I like that combination even better. It added the perfect amount of brightness to give me an overall tone that I just love.

    I think I said enough and will end my review here but trust me I can go on and on. Buying this guitar turned out to be the best decision I ever made in my music career. Kevin was a pleasure to deal with throughout the ordering process and my hats off to Alistair and the rest of the staff at Emerald, you guys got something really special here. Conveniently, I noticed that today is the day they will be announcing the winner for the innovation and creativity award. You have my vote and no disrespect to the others running but I really believe you guys deserve to win! Peace!
