Smile 2018 Emerald X20 12 string Artisan Woody Bub Ex+ SOLD

Esteemed AGF folks. PICS Added below...

SOLD

Lowered Reverb price. So lowering here for AGF.

THIS SEEMS REALLY MORE THAN FAIR TO ME!!!

Near Mint 2018. Emerald Artisan X-20 "Woody" 12 string.
Faced with spectacular Bubinga. Has the super glossy Amber CF finish.
Ordered with the UPGRADE BAGGS ANTHEM
This axe sounds FANTASTIC plugged in.
Fine Luthier setup for light strings with Low action.
currently sports brand new Elixir 80/20 12 string Lights.
Only flaw I can find is one extremely shallow finish chip between the high A string pin and the saddle. Please see last two pics.
other than this tiny and nearly invisible flaw it appears Absolutely As New.
the original Hiscox case is also in as New condition!
will include light weight plastic tuner buttons in the case, should you wish to lighten the headstock.
The Gotoh Mini 510 tuners are EXTREMELY SMOOTH AND STABLE, which sure makes tuning a breeze.
And the CF construction keeps tuning super stable. Very nice on a 12 string!

New price for an identical axe from Emerald is $3350 shipped. With a 5 month wait! Save a bundle and play her next Week!

SOLD ON REVERB.

I am only selling this beauty because I find the neck a bit beefier than my 90s Taylor LKSM, and I have small hands. Plus I am 67 and still playing for a living, so can not just walk away when my beat up old former ROCK drummer left hand hurts!

Shipped insured USPS priority and beyond pro packed!

Please see Reverb listing for 18 pics.

Here is the description from the Emerald website:
"The X20 is a perfect platform for going beyond the standard 6-string and with the X20-12 being the best sounding 12-string we have ever heard, we decided to add it to our standard range.
Carbon fibre offers offers much better structural strength and stability which makes it perfect for 12-string guitars. The strength of carbon allows us to make a soundboard that is both light and responsive and its stability and resistance to temperature and humidity create a 12-string that stays in tune much better than its wooden counterparts.
The X20-12 is a guitar designed with the player in mind and not tradition. It features an ergonomic forearm bevel and a beveled cutaway to give even greater access to the fretboard. Our unique asymmetrical back contours make the X20 sit more comfortably and securely on your knee.
The neck has a very comfortable shallow C profile with a 1 15/16″ nut and the heel is reduced in profile to give better access to the higher frets.
Tonally this guitar has a big voice, We developed a new laminate structure to give it a richer fuller sound and with the unique soundhole placement it gives, great projection to the player, while still giving your audience the fullness of your performance.
The X20-12 Artisan is built to order and generally has a five-month lead time. The Artisan is available in black, amber, red, green and blue, or as a Woody, has full gloss finish on all surfaces, Gotoh 510 tuners (18:1 ratio), an LR Baggs Element Active System™ – VTC pick-up or upgrade to an LR Baggs Anthem™ and comes with a custom Hiscox Lite Flite case."

Smile Thanks Frank!

Thank you Frank for the nice comments! You should know after all the fine ones you have had...

I hope everyone enjoyed the spring equinox yesterday and the almost full moon, too!!!

This guitar does not mind hot or cold or dry or wet... and it is impervious to the full moon as well. Maybe not so much the driver! Hahahahahahaha

Carry on and remain musical

Paul

A few inquiries and a phone call on this but still here and still needs a new home!

Reach out if interested, and I will do my best to answer any questions ASAP!

This is a great axe.

Cheers

Paul

Looks like an awesome guitar, Paul. Worry-free, maintenance-free 12 string... who doesn't want that in their closet? From a great seller too!

Smile Thanks Andy!

Thanks Andy!

This axe is in fantastic condition and set up with low action and new light strings. Sounds quite intoxicating, and will go down to D nicely.

The Anthem pup is a factory upgrade and it sounds ABSOLUTELY HUGE and wonderful plugged in!

Indeed, what is not to like if you want a 12 string with no maintenance needed!

Cheers

Paul
