Default NGD: Last Emerald X5

Hello, I'm new to AGF. Here is a video of me playing a Bach piece on my Emerald X5. I was told that I received the last X5 produced. I also received an Amicus and X20. I will post video or pics of them later.

Nice to hear someone showcasing these great instruments properly.

Default Thanks.

Thanks guys, you're funny. I'm going to be producing several videos with my Emerald guitars in 2017. I simply asked them to send a shirt for the footage and Sean kindly sent one. He was extremely helpful through the entire process of receiving my Emeralds. He always responds quickly. Now, am I missing something? Why can't I attach a photo to this thread. I'm trying to post pictures from my desktop and it asks for a url. Do I have to link to some other host to get my pics here?

You have to upload your pics to a hosting site like Photobucket and copy the URL from there.

I gotcha, thanks. I'm not used to this sort of forum site. I'll figure it out.

Sorry. No cigar yet.... There's detailed instructions somewhere in the user manual here, amongst all the "be nice" admonishments and so on ....

Congratulations ! Smoke'em if you got 'em !

They really are a lovely trio of emerald Emeralds !

Ha, thanks. I do like green. I just couldn't make myself order a red or blue Emerald instrument. Must be the OCD in me. The wallpaper is really a fabric background that can be lit to any color I choose with the lights in my studio. I'll tell you what...you guys choose the backdrop color for my next video. I'm thinking I'll do some bluegrass next.

Howdy string king! That's some mighty fancy playing. I can see why you got the green. I got a blue X7 a couple weeks ago. It definitely doesn't sound like your green one.

I wouldn't want to suggest a backdrop color other than green if you're afflicted with OCD. Might throw you off. Just curious, how bad is this green compulsion you have? Is your house green? Car? Walls painted green? Like peas and broccoli best? How will you play bluegrass with a green guitar?

I'm with Long Jon. Not sure if I like him yet. This disdain for blue emeralds is slightly disturbing.

String King, since you can't always read the intent with a post, most everything I said here is in jest. Just thought I'd point that out since you're a newbie here with green guitars.

String King - thanks for the X5 video. I have an original version X5 woody and always felt they were capable of creating great music. You proved it. (The original version had a center hole vs offset.)
