Very Beautiful. Congratulations.

You can't go wrong with an Emerald X20.
One of the best guitars out there.


Of my 3 Emeralds, the X20 gets played the most.

It's a thing of beauty, isn't it? It's quite an upcharge, as it needs to be hand-carved, but I'll seriously consider springing for it when I order my next one

Wow! Gorgeous guitar! I'm not very familiar with the carbon fiber guitars, but I can't imagine you'd find one as fine as this one just anywhere!

Thank you! This has turned out to be a great creative tool as I've been writing some new music with it. While the images supplied by Emerald are beautiful and dynamic, the actual color of this guitar would be a lot more "woody" color than yellow. This photo is closer to what my eyes see in real life. John Denver is smiling because I know he'd be playing a carbon fiber guitar today.



And a closeup of the headstock... Notice the stairstep, almost deco look of the sides...

I agree. I think John Denver would've had an X30 since he seemed to favor jumbos.

Dang....I should have sprung for the headstock....very cool work indeed. What a beautiful guitar. I'm assuming that you had no problems where the veneer was cut as in the X20 problem post?

Cheers...
