This all new and top of the line Artisan version of the X5-OS features polished & exposed carbon on the back, sides, neck and headstock to produce a stunning instrument that will fascinate you and also your audience.

It looks stunning but it also retains all the key features required in a top of the range "travel" guitar. Compact size, light weight and a guitar that will survive and excel in adverse conditions ... water, heat, sand, dirt and rough handling - assuming you can bear to take this beauty out on the road....

The offset soundhole X5-OS with its new 24 inch scale repositions the bridge closer to the centre of the sound board where it can best transmit and amplify the string vibration to produce a warmer and bigger sound so it is an even better finger style and rhythm instrument.

The X5-OS retains its slim and comfortable neck profile and it now has a slightly wider 1.75 inch width nut and 24 playable stainless steel frets and it is super compact, lightweight yet almost indestructible - an ideal travelling companion.

Immense care and thought has gone into the design and manufacture of these top quality instruments. The X5-OS Artisan features upgraded Gotoh 510 machine head tuners, along with Graphtech saddle, nut and bridge pins to help you get the most out of your guitar and it is factory fitted as standard with a B Band A3T pickup and EQ system with integrated tuner.

So, while you may be choosing an X5-OS as a guitar to travel with, you will also find it a very rewarding instrument and a compliment to any collection so one to play daily, travelling or not.

Complete with a compact custom Emerald gig-bag giving great protection for the guitar and comfort for you.
