Emerald, established in 1999 by founder Alistair Hay, make custom carbon fibre acoustic guitars.

Carbon Fibre

Emerald Guitars are produced predominantly using various types of high grade carbon fibre bonded together in a matrix of epoxy resin but we also use other structural core materials sandwiched between the carbon layers to create a very lightweight and rigid structure.

The innovative one-piece carbon fibre design and unique soundhole position allows for a light and responsive top, providing the warmest, fullest tone you’ll ever find in a guitar.


The range includes 6 string, 12 string, baritone and bass models.
