I noticed that too..... did the K-man sell his X30?? Or just run out of allowed signature characters?

I rarely watch any posted video all the way through, but the Emerald shipping videos almost always get a full viewing.

And, Hey OF660ers, it survived the first cut at the Kramster's castle and cannot believe X30 was the first to go...

My coco7 is calling me

Love the blackebony30 and the green Walnut Creek7string though.

I'm thinking that the K-Man removes them from his signature once they leave his casita and on to their rightful owners...

That's beautiful! Looks like swirling water of rapids.

That wide strap looks really nice. What do you think that is, 4"? I wish they would figure out a good strap lock system that works with their machine screw threaded buttons. I don't like using straps without locks.


edit: just sent Kevin an email asking about strap width and lamenting specifics about strap locks.

Steel;

Thanks for the try, but I'm still seeing a black screen with no video. I'm going to chat with Emerald and see if the shipping videos can be placed on the
Emerald site.

Thanks Jwellsy. I just use the cheap rubber strap locks. They might be cheap but they do work great.

Evan, not sure why you can't see the video it's from YouTube not Facebook this time. Try this link and see if it works:

I went to Facebook and though not a member was allowed to see the video--what an amazing Fretish of guitars. And what an amazing array of destinations.

GL, congrats on the new guitar coming. It looks like a real beauty. Hope the taxman doesnít get you when it arrives.
Myself, Iím loving my X20. Hardly touch the Martin anymore. Iím going to get another Emerald at some point. Iíve got it narrowed down to either a X30, X20-12, or an X20 nylon. Too hard to decide just yet.

Thanks Dan, I hope the taxman leaves me alone also. They can easily ruin what should be a good day.
