Interesting. Looks similar to the bridge they use on nylon string models, but that one is definitely steel string.

Agreed. The standard pinless is way more attractive.

Yes. It must be a 1 off because he didn't mention it in the video. I agree with others that the standard bridge looks much better!

Similar yes, but not the same. The holes are larger to make room for the ball ends.

On my X20 Nylon I have put Thomastik-Infeld Rope Core strings and the ball ends are on the outside.

Dipping my toe into the Emerald waters with a modest stock X10 sans options. Hoping I like it better than the Composite Acoustics OX I purchased (and quickly returned) about 10 years ago.
