I'm betting this is the oldest one out there:



This is my 2010 X7 "life". Since I took this photo it has suffered a ding on the top that ended up chipping a piece out of the veneer (I was keeping it in my office at the time, and my suspicion is that someone was messing with it and dropped it). I simply smoothed the dent over with epoxy, and it sounds and plays fine but it will never be beautiful again.

Very, very cool although the psychologist in me wants to call it "Rorschach."

Ah ha. Indeed. I'm too frightened of the implications of the rorschach test to ever take it. :-)

Thanks for linking in the picture. I inserted the URL as required but it wouldn't post. I have a terribly weak connection or am simply incompetent.

You're welcome. I know how to insert pictures, but I'm not computer literate enough to know why your link didn't work...

I saw this Redwood Burl X20 on Emerald's In Stock page and just had to share it. What a cool grain - looks like something from a Human Anatomy textbook....

Don’t have a picture of the finished guitar, but it will be in my hands within the next few days so I will post an update after it arrives. X20 with Royal Ebony veneer
