I got confirmation that my X20 will make the shipping video and got to see my 1st picture on the showcase (8670) I'm very happy with the way the laminate turned out.

While the Guitar Builder is a very nice feature, the actual finished product turns out much nicer looking...

The order was placed on 12/20.
It was really just a placeholder since there wasn't any Koa veneers I liked.
I picked out a veneer on 1/5.

How does Emerald handle "place holders?"

Meaning I E-mailed Kevin and put down the 1/2 deposit (Which you can still do if you call or E-mail)
I gave him the specs I wanted and my choice of Koa as a veneer, hoping he'd send me some samples when new ones came in.

This was right before Christmas, so I knew there wouldn't be much movement, but I wanted to get in the queue.

Thanks!
My jaw dropped when I saw it.
I hadn't expected the dark browns on the lower bout, but love them.

I found the disclosure of the number of X20's sold in a year to be surprising. Thought it would have been more.

I heard a number for left-handed X20s did I miss another one?
