For many people the key features of a "travel" guitar are size and weight but for others it means a guitar that will survive and excel in adverse conditions ... water, heat, sand, dirt and rough handling and these are the characteristics that have made the Emerald X5 the best selling of the Emerald Guitars products.

With its offset soundhole the X5-OS repositions the bridge closer to the sweet spot of the sound board where it can best transmit and amplify the string vibration to produce a warmer and bigger sound making it an even better finger style and rhythm instrument than the original X5.

However 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 in this OPUS spec features cosmo black Gotoh 381 machine head tuners, along with Graphtech saddle, nut and bridge pins to help you get the most out of your guitar.

This model an Opus specification so it features an exposed carbon polished top with exposed carbon crystal ice finish to back and sides and this one is upgraded with a factory fitted B-Band A3T pickup/EQ with integrated tuner.

So, whilst you may be choosing your X5-OS primarily as a travel guitar you will find it a very rewarding instrument and a compliment to any collection so be ready to play it daily - travelling or not.

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