Default Changes to the Emerald 3D Builder

I just watched the shipping video released this morning. Was hoping to see mine in there, but no such luck .

Some good news though. First, it sounds like they are going to try to resume weekly shipping videos. Second, at the end Alistair mentions some new modifications to the 3D Builder, including options for nut width, scale length and fretboard radius. I also see fan frets listed, but don't recall if that was already in there. There seem to be more choices for scale length than before (?). And, at least for the X7, there is a slotted headstock option.

Anyone have a guitar in the video?

Fan frets is (are?) new to the builder. Good to see that there - gradually, the baritone I have in mind is becoming more of a possibility as time goes by

I received an email from Emerald today stating they were "making arrangements as we speak for shipping" of my X20, but it wasn't included in the video.

Hopefully in the next one then. It sounded like they were a little backed up, possibly because Alistair was recovering from covid.

Fantastic! Really appreciated! chance to choose scale length, fan frets, radius, etc. directly on the 3d builder it is great!
