Don't tell Alistair, but I kind of prefer Chloe and Kevin's version...

Steel;

I'm not getting the picture. I checked on the Emerald site and see no mention of the February select series. As with the picture I see here, I'm in the dark.

That was a fun change-up. I appreciate it when Alistair has been doing these, but "The Chloe and Kevin Show" was a treat. Nice to hear these lovely instruments being played!

Try this link Evan, I'm not a FB user but I do subscribe to their YouTube channel. I initially posted the YT version but maybe this FB link you can view? Not another select series but a great shipping video format with Chloe presenting and Kev playing

Steel;

I should have said "shipping video" instead of "select series." Thank you for the correction. I ended up going to UTUBE Emerald Guitars Shipping Video and there it was. Opening the new veneers, the select series, and the shipping videos have become major entertainments...thank you for your help.

And speaking of select series, I suspect that somewhere along the line someone will select a very limited exotic veneer and have six different guitars ordered as a one-of-a-kind collection.

Do you have a veneer in mind?

Eatswodo;

I envision a super rare custom veneer with a supply of just enough to do 6 guitars, something that could never be repeated. Given the variety of Emeralds available the magnum order could go to maybe 12 guitars.

I was actually wondering whether, as the originator of the idea, you were setting yourself up to be the buyer

David,

Thanks for asking, but no. I think I've bought my allotment of Emeralds. The one in process will be my 5th. Well maybe a 6th would be in order, just to match Cecil in nylon string renditions.

Now that you mention it, I could see ordering six different nylon versions with some exotic veneer that no one else would have. I'm not sure if the divorce would leave me enough money.
