Default Emerald Archtop about to be released

For those who haven't heard, Emerald has officially announced the upcoming release of their archtop on Facebook.

LINK

For those on Facebook, you can help them name it.
I do not have a Facebook account but my suggestion would be "Artemis", the Greek goddess of the hunt, often depicted as an archer.

And as a critical note, I would have preferred modern shaped soundholes that follow the contours of the guitar instead of those classic F holes.

I like a simple non-pretentious name for a guitar, so I went for Emerald F. Who said boring ?

With the offset tuners it should be named the Emerald F-Off.

That looks gorgeous! Curious what the sound compares to. Any details on which size it is based on?

It appears to be called the Kestrel, and is part of the May 2019 Select Series.
