Hi Evan,

Given that they have no representation in the US, this isn't really surprising. Besides the feedback from a handful of people on this forum, some of whom have since resold their guitars, there is very little info on Emeralds out there. By contrast, you can Google Rainsong and get ten pages of useful info. Folks who ordered an Emerald on blind faith, and find it's not for them, may find it's better to take a loss and sell it used rather than deal with the paperwork, and cost of International shipping back to Ireland. Those that are curious, but are not willing to take a financial risk, are wise to place a WTB ad, letting someone else's loss, become their gain.

Back when I was collecting travel guitars, I would place WTB ads on forums for some lesser known models. I recall wanting to try a Vagabond travel guitar, which at the time was all the rage, even Neil Young had one, but new they were $489 with a six month wait. I placed WTB ads on all the forums, and to my surprise, I received three responses, one for a super rare nylon string version. I bought all three, and although I have better travel guitars, I kept one as a curio. Buying used just makes sense when you can't try the guitar, and there is very little feedback.

No, I didn't, Evan. Like my equally rare nylon string Go guitar, it was sold.

I am chuckling....

This is a guitar enthusiast forum and we all get "Gas"

We buy... we sell

I am actually poor at selling. I envy those that can part as quick as they acquire.
