Carbon Guitars… the Emeralds have arrived

For those who are more curious than prudence, here is another chance for experimentation. Traditionally guitars are only made from wood. One might ask why. Perhaps the most logical answer is wood was available and abundant. Woodcraft must be well developed and recognized commercially in those days. The great number of furnitures that were made from wood has provided sufficient anecdotal evidence to indicate favor for wood over other materials. I suspect when we trace the history line of musical instruments, wood should have played a significant role.

Increasingly, alternate materials have been introduced in the world of guitars. In an earlier article (ArtMusicKitchen) the Emerald Guitars was feature. They are made in Ireland by a innovative and skillful young entrepreneur. They are finally in Singapore and Guitaring Passionately has been appointed as sale distributor as well as the after sales service agent. For more information of these guitars, check out Emerald guitars' website here:

A client has requested to replaced the stock nut/saddle with FMI after he bought a X7-OS. The sonic properties of the guitar were enhanced greatly by the replacement. Here are some pictures of his X7-OS.
