I don't know where or how he's getting his veneers but Alistair is bringing us the best of the best. There is no one good one--they are all beautiful.
Due to the size difference between the X30 and X10, I think that piece is certainly more suited for the size of the X10. When it comes to royal ebony, Alistair could put on a blindfold and just start chopping at random and the result would still be amazing!

Cecil;

Good question; I don't know. What I shot for in the 7 electric was 2". I had hoped for the same with the 10 build, but Alistair recommended, and got, more. I'm not sure what I think about the extra width and will report back when the guitar arrives.

I suspect that what Alistair is calling a "slim body" is a hybrid size, something between my preferred 2" electric and a full 4-5" acoustic width. Indeed, this is an all-around hybrid instrument: a nylon string with a cut-a-way, with a nut width between the common standards for nylon and steel widths, with electronics, and with a blending of traditional wood and carbon fiber.

This could be the ONE guitar I've been searching for. If it's not, the 7 might do the job. I can play the 7 acoustically and be heard. I can play the 7 plugged in and be heard in the next county. I had hoped the 10 would give me a bit more bout and I'm also getting a bit more width. Should be a killer guitar. Fun exploration.

Hey, only 13 days 'till "next year." About the same amount of time that somebody whose name I won't mention takes to reveal the many new guitars he gets. Weekly. Do you have your own shipping and receiving department??

Fixedgear;

Thank you. I don't do Facebook but a friend who does gave me a look and Kevin sent me some pictures which I asked to have attached to this thread. I have high hopes for this guitar and it will make for a great Christmas and new year.

Woo, that is amazing.

Just curious, what is the exact spec? (Body size, scale length ...)

CQ;

The build is based on the 10, with a thinner body. The scale is the standard 25 & something. I wanted a short scale and a 2" body, but Alistair said "no." The nut-width is 1-7/8". The pickup is something new to me--it catches each individual string. In many ways the guitar is going to be new to me and I'll be reporting back when I get chance to do some fondling and fingering.

That’s pretty slick, Evan. Congrats! Real nice bookmatched grain pattern. We’ll be curious to know how you feel this one fits into those Emerald nylons you already have/had, and crossovers in general.

Tom;

Yes the bookmatching is exquisite. I don't play to that level--but I have a healthy respect for it.
