Emerald T8 Opus Electro - Red

The T8 is the newest arrival to the expanding family of Emerald travel guitars – but as always with Emerald you get an instrument that gives so much more than the term “travel guitar” can possibly express.

You can see that the T8 takes numerous design cues from the traditional body style of the Emerald T20 model but features a new and more compact version of the T series headstock and the T8 body is re-worked to meet the needs of those seeking the more traditional body shape in a more compact package.

So the many changes featured on the T8 are not just cosmetic. No, not at all. In fact the new Emerald T8 features completely new material for the top to give you an even warmer and traditional guitar tone. Beautiful, bright full chords can be strummed and you will also hear great individual string definition and clarity when finger picking. The guitar is perfectly balanced and will feel alive in your hands.

The neck features a very comfortable shallow C profile with a 1¾" nut width and a two-way truss rod is fitted so you can re-set it to your preferred neck relief, should you wish. 

This model is one of the new Emerald Opus range so it features Gotoh machine heads, an exposed carbon polished top and black back and sides but upgraded with a factory fitted B-Band A3T pickup/EQ with integrated tuner.

The Emerald T8 comes complete with a high quality custom gig bag to help you carry and protect it when you are off on your travels or on your way to a gig.
