X30 Select Series 11/18

From: €2,975.00

This guitar is in stock and available for immediate delivery. 

The X30 is a full bodied Jumbo with a generous 17” lower bout but due to our carbon fibre moulding technology and innovative ergonomic approach the X30 feels incredibly comfortable to play with tone offering thunderous bass response yet still surprisingly balanced across all registers.

This X30 Is part of the November 2018 select series, A collection of instruments with custom features hand selected each month by Alistair Hay. This guitar features a beautiful Spalted Chen Chen veneer over Amber tinted carbon back and sides.

All the guitars in this months select series feature Gotoh 510 tuners in gold and the LR-Baggs Element pickup system.

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

This X30 is part of the monthly edition of the Emerald Custom Shop Select Series, a collection of instruments hand-selected by Alistair Hay. It features a Spalted Chen Chen veneer with Red carbon back and sides.

The X30 Select Series 10/18 has full gloss finish on all surfaces, Gotoh 510 tuners (18:1 ratio) and comes with an LR Baggs Element Active System™ – VTC pick-up and a custom-padded Emerald Guitars gig bag.
