Default NGD: Synergy X20 Super Treble

Been waiting, what seems like forever ;-) , but it was definitely worth the wait... it's beautiful!!

Many thanks to Sean for his patience with me, Alistair for his superb artistry, and the rest of the Emerald team for everything else.

It'll be a while before I can get something worth recording - I'm an HG newbie - but in the meantime, here are some pics...

Default Nice!

I actually discovered Emerald by looking up harp guitars on the net. Then I saw the Chimaera doubleneck and bought that instead. Any pics of the case? Iím curious what you would get from Emerald for that. I still have an interest on adding one of these to my small collection of extended range instruments. The Emerald gig bag works well for my doubleneck.

Dear Amgard,

We're so delighted that you are pleased with your new Synergy X20 Super Treble. This was a particularly beautiful piece of Bubinga veneer. Wishing you lots of fun getting acquainted with your new Emerald harp guitar.

Best wishes from all the team,

Sean

I still canít quite get over the fact that I own this work of art. Iím continuously seeing new aspects and details of the design.

Your suggestion for the Bubinga/amber/vintage gold tuners was a master-stroke, they go together perfectly.

Thanks again..

Looks like it needs two or three

That's a pretty awesome instrument.

Default Thanks for the pic...

... and the mug shot too Cool thing Iíve noticed about my Chimaera is I donít have tuning issues. Stays in tune pretty well, which is real important when you have an instrument with 18 or more strings. Good choice with the Emerald harp.

Tuning is steady as a rock, though of course Iím retuning the super-trebles depending on the particular song. Those Gotoh 510s are very accurate so retuning is very easy.

Iíve made a little Ďsomethingíwith a tuner. Will upload a pic soon. 😉
