Yeah, I’m getting excited to explore the range of the guitars.

Starting to think that the x10 could end up being the guitar that stays at the lake house in north Ontario, replacing the CA OX. Then sell off the OX. Wouldn’t get as much cash for the CA, but I’d have a helluva guitar that would live up there full time…

Yeah, the X10 is a great guitar. Kind of surprised there isn't more praise for it here.

Will be curious to see how you like the X30.

I *LOVE* my X10. It's good enough it has kind of killed my desire for a Jumbo.

No, it sounds nothing like a jumbo, I'm stupid, not crazy.

But I enjoy it so much, I know I would choose to play the X10 every time, probably even over an X30.

I'm growing to appreciate its brightness and ease of play. Finding I don't need the complexity/depth of bass as much as I used to.

Where's that Like Button!

There's at least two fans of X10! Lol

I took the x10 to an open mic in Concord last night to do a couple of tunes with a buddy. Everyone raved about it. I have to say, it sounded GREAT plugged in. Maybe better than my x20. No lack of low end through the pickups at all.

Several curious players kind of mobbed me after, wondering what the heck it is. Probably 5 people tried it out. I think I might've made a few sales for Emerald, lol.

But one gal who was particularly interested, while blown away by the tone on stage, also noticed the lack of low end acoustically. I told her she needs to try my x20.

I do more plugged-in playing at my place in North Ontario. I'm thinking the x10 might replace the CA OX that lives up there. x20/30 will travel back and forth so I have two wherever I go.

x30 just arrived. I've only had time to give it a few strums between meetings, but holy smokes this thing has depth and tone for daaaaays... Wow.

Now I'm thinking the x20 stays in Mass. The x10 goes to live in north Ontario at the lake. And the x30 travels back and forth so there's two Emeralds wherever I am.

The CA OX that's at the lake now will be put up for sale, probably locally at the lake next summer. If it doesn't sell up north I'll bring it back to Mass to sell it.

Looking forward to spending more time with the x30.
