I would (and may) go with standard 24" (+ a little?) new X7. 3 X7 guy!! -- would feel kramster-esk!
I would enjoy hearing a comparison between the new and old X7s; as well as some discussion about the larger body and how it "fits." Experiencing the difference between the X7 and the X20, it is very apparent that the ergonomics were part of each design.

When I began to think about another Emerald, it was for the "in between" size that might give the comfort of smaller X7 with the sound push more like the X20. I was surprised when the new X7 and the X10 came in close in body size... makes me think Alistair has created a new, smaller standard. Exciting times for Emerald fans.
