A striking variety of colors! I just finished listening to the live unveiling on Facebook... nice playing on these lovely instruments, and I see that two are already sold!

Congratulations Alistair and staff on a year of monthly anticipation with the 2017 Select Series.

Love my February louro preto woody!

I have liked all of the woody select series, but this quilted maple may be the best one yet, IMHO. Seriously beautiful.

The announcement email was waiting for me this morning, and wasn't there last night. Two are sold, so someone is on the ball.......
Seriously beautiful guitars.

Mine too! Man oh man, if this guitar hadn't been snagged up as quick as it did I might have some explaining to do with my wife I think it is one of the nicest maple tops they have done and love how it contrasts with the traditional black CF b/s. This guitar is stunning plain and simple. A bunch of enables you guys are.....the Emeralds are really growing on me.

As I recall, there were some other very striking quilted maple veneers in the last "veneer opening" video Emerald had on Facebook... I'm guessing they would be happy to make one just for you.

Congrats, Joel. That's a beauty.

FWIW, both times I have ordered from Emerald, the guitars have arrived in seven days from Ireland to Idaho. Patience.......

My guitar seems to be stuck in customs, USPS has a tracking number, but not received it yet. I bought this Dec 1st and would have thought I'd have it by xmas.

trying to stay hopeful,
