Default 2018 Emerald X7 Custom woody 'Excalibur'! - No longer available

This guitar is no longer for sale.

This is my dead mint Emerald X7 Custom Woody acoustic guitar. I received this guitar in December of 2018. Emerald guitars are all carbon fiber so they are immune to all the things that bother all-solid wood guitars like too much humidity, too dry, too cold, etc. They are nearly bulletproof but sound great. The X7 is the small, travel size guitar but it has a big sound. The body size is similar to a 00.

The custom features on this guitar are first the gorgeous ziricote woody top which is a thin, real wood veneer that is bonded to the carbon fiber top so still has all the excellent properties of the carbon fiber but with that beautiful wood grain. I hand selected this for the awesome sapwood or heartwood center grain which looks to me like a flaming sword. In fact, I nicknamed this guitar 'Excalibur'. Next up is the scale and neck shape. The stock neck scale is 24.0" for the X7's but I went slightly longer at 24.6". Next after that is the neck carve which is a soft V. The final custom feature is the bridge which is pinless, has the point moved to the center to better offset the book-matched grain pattern and the carbon fiber weave is exposed instead of painted black - note the bridge is still sealed in clear coat. I recently installed the very excellent Schatten HFN active pickup system which is nothing short of incredible.

This guitar is lightweight and super comfortable due to the small size and short scale, and comfort bevels front and back. This is the newer X7 design which has the deep cutaway on the back which allows for incredible access to the upper frets. The signature Emerald offset sound hole puts the sound directly into the players face. This guitar does it all - travel guitar, couch guitar, camping, boating, beach and you can use it live at any open mic or gig. There's even a little tuner mounted in the sound hole. Comes with an Emerald custom gig bag that is as beautiful as it is functional.

This guitar with these custom features would cost you well over $3,500 new plus a six month wait. Save yourself a grand and the six-month wait and get it shipped to you tomorrow. Shipping to CONUS only. Thanks for looking.

For trades mostly interested in nylon Emeralds, Lowdens, Furch or birthyear Martin's and vintage Martin's but I'll entertain most anything so hit me up.

I sold my X20 so the heat is off on selling this one. I'd prefer a trade for a nylon Emerald X10 or X7 or maybe even an X20. Also, nylon Furch or birthyear Martins are of interest. But hit me up with anything. You just never know! Oh, and of course I'll sell. It's back up on Reverb.

I remember this set of veneer when Alistair was doing a show and tell of new veneers a while back and thinking, man that will make a very striking guitar. And it did!

If I was in the market for a travel sized guitar, this would be it. Truly gorgeous, and as an X20 owner I know it sounds fabulous! GLWTS!!

Thanks, it really is one of the best to come out of the custom shop. In fact, when Alistair was doing his video review of the guitars shipping that week he commented that he really wanted to keep this veneer for himself but that I talked him into using it for mine!

Thanks, Bongo. Yes, it's a beautiful guitar. One of a kind with the custom features. Also note that this guitar ever so slight longer than a standard X7. Due to the longer scale the overall length is 35.5" vs. the stock 34.25". Also, the neck joins the body very close to the 13th fret vs. the 12th fret. So while the guitar is still in the travel size range and fits in the standard X7 gig bag, it's just a little longer and is therefore more comfortable to play for those that find the standard X7 scale just a little on the tight side.

Lot's of action over on Reverb with one guy having it in his cart and another guy in CT thinking of make a trip to buy locally. Don't expect this one to last much longer.
