Once again...there are no limits to the inspiration of Emerald clients, and the production and artistry that Alistair and team are able to consistently deliver. No other builder, wood, CF, whatever are making such unique dreams come true. This guitar is special. Congrats, ww!

Wow! One of most impressive Emeralds ever. Been to Kauai twice -- a very special place. Enjoy.

The video unveiling is now up on the Emerald Facebook page. I just watched it. Despite how frizzy my hair is and **** donít ever let myself be filmed from below (Iím not a slim woman but donít actually have a double chin!!) again, it is a lovely video. I also adore that photo of Alistair and Jessica with it. Thanks so much to Emerald for making my holy grail guitar dream come true. 😊

That video was a delight, and you look just fine in it! Pretty sure if I had to wait a couple days to open the box for a special guitar, I would look like a crazy man. It was tough enough with my last one in our local Post Office over a holiday weekend, I can't imagine it in my house for the wait!

That said, kudos to you for making that wait, and kudos to Emerald for having the whole team there on the other end. The results of the video are heartfelt all around. Thanks to you and Alistair for letting us all in on it.

Enjoy that new guitar!

Jim

Congratulations Staci on your beautiful guitar. I just watched the video and I must say that I had a few tears in my eyes while watching it. Enjoy.

****....make me #3 to have tears....and I ain't no sissy! Very moving video, and I think shows, as I commented on Youtube, this is not just guitar company, but there is something special happening there....may Alistair and his Emerald team keep this up for as long as possible....magic.
