Haha!

I don't know how likely a production Emerald resonator is. I have no concept of what the reso market looks like...a niche of a niche or a high-end CF opportunity? (Hey, if Emerald can offer a harp guitar...)

But until/unless Emerald makes some resonator-specific molds, a resonator build requires deep mods and custom fabrication. I think that's where the hesitation comes in--be prepared to pay for something far outside of regular production! And have no doubt--Alistair is a master.

I was happy to fund this R&D experiment, and of course, it looks like Emerald absolutely nailed it. NGD forthcoming.
