Sweet! That royal ebony is striking. I also like the carbon weave bridge - all mine are pure black. I look forward to meeting up sometime this summer to compare notes, as it were. Fingers crossed that the Shipping Gods are working in your favor.

Beautiful guitar. Itís obvious as to why royal ebony is one of Emeraldís most popular veneers. And Alistair and his team have a great eye in regards to lining up the piece of veneer for maximum aesthetic effect. Congrats Pinecone!

Both Emerald and the Shipping Gods were kind to me. The guitar arrived this afternoon. Still getting to know it, I will post some first impressions in the next day or two...

Definitely looking forward to a meet-and-play day later this year.

Dang it. Iím in the process of working out a quote with keven and asked for satin clear on the neck. After seeing your guitar, now I think I want it all done in satin!

Geesh Backcounty, I always say they are stunning, but that Kestrel is REALLY stunning. A work of art as much as a fine guitar.

I'm glad you revived this thread. I hadn't seen it before. Some really nice looking Emerald's, but aren't they all? Here's my recent Pao Ferro X-20:
