Once you have seven strings you might start wondering about what you could do with eight. Sort of like potato chips.

All being well, in early October I'll get the ransom note for an X20-7, amber top and headstock, black back and sides.

That should either make the summer go really fast, or seem interminable
I made it a month without whining. Time to find more diversions.

And to resist the nagging thought of a slotted headstock.

I sure have enjoyed my slot headed Emerald. Never ending source of joy. Probably the prettiest headstock in the kingdom. Everyone comments on it. glad I added that to the order.

All that taunting done, and in the spirit of transparency, I've had two subsequent Emeralds without the slot heads, haven't missed them. But they sure are neat.

I remember the first slotted head I saw made by Emerald.. Alistair brought it to NAMM a few years back and was a nylon. Paper Kitten I mean Martin Blanes played it.. was sooo nice to see that slotted head and feel it right there in my hands... was really really nice to look at... just sayin'.
