Enter Xaviere: Mr. X is an acoustic-electric dream!

Oh, Xaviere! This acoustic-electric dynamo can go toe-to-toe with any acoustic-electric out there in terms of tone and finish, and he does it all on a shoestring budget! 

Xaviere soaks up the Jersey sunshine!

Mr. X

Xaviere comes to us through GuitarFetish.com’s Rich Tone Wood series. We picked up Mr. X at a discount because of fret spurs and a rough finish. We gave Xaviere a full fret leveling, crowning, and leveling, buffed out the finish, and now he’s a top-shelf instrument: better than new, but priced far less! 

Pacific Rim Pedigree

Mr. X is the real deal when it comes to construction We’re not exactly sure where he was created; China, Indonesia, or some other Pacific Rim nation. Wherever he comes from, he was built by skilled hands. This  instrument passes the “sniff test” for luthiers and players alike. Here’s what GF.com has to say:

The new Rich Tonewood Series from Xaviere represents the greatest combination of quality, craftsmanship and value EVER in the guitar industry. The 450SCE is an Acoustic/Electric model that features a SOLID USA Sitka Spruce Top from Alaska, a rosewood bridge, Bone compensated saddle and bone nut. The rosewood fingerboard is bound with real Koa wood. The body is bound with binding made up of long grain Koa with ebony and maple purfling. The rosette is Mahogany and Red Maple. Heck- even the inlay dots are maple! The peghead overlay is ebony and the “Xaviere” logo is hand inlaid in real Maple! A soft Venetian cutaway offers excellent upper fret access, and we install a great GFS EAP360 preamp with three band EQ and an onboard tuner! The back and sides are Black Walnut what looks incredible rich but also lends a more pronounced low end to the instrument The 450SCE features a solid Mahogany neck topped off with excellent 14:1 tuners in the “Gotoh” style screw arrangement. Only the best materials have been used to craft this instrument.. even the soundhole label is made from SOLID WOOD! The 450SCE is topped off with a very thin coat of catalyzed urethane- we give this guitar the thinnest of coats because it is a great feeling matte finish. This is an extremely well balanced and toneful guitar- standard Dreadnaught shape with firm bottom, relaxed mids and sweet and clear treble.
