|Emerald is the brainchild of Irish luthier Alistair Hay. Since 1998, Alistair has been going through several crisis but he sticked with his dream. His guitars are unique: built from carbon composite and carbon fibre. Our customers are always very suprised how light they are, but they are also super sturdy. They will not be affected by extremes of heat, cold, dry or humid environments. They are earth-friendly and they sound amazingly great! As Alistair writes, those guitars are built "with the mind set of what is possible rather than what is normal".
