Description

The Amicus is a short scale 12-string which allows you to create a completely new sound with your guitar-playing. Imagine not having to learn any new chords, but playing a sound that is more reminiscent of a mandolin.

Its short 18” scale allows the Amicus to be tuned up to D, similar to having a capo at the tenth fret and with its full width neck spacing, it is a comfortable and familiar instrument for guitarists who can use their regular chord shapes.

This Amicus is part of the monthly edition of the Emerald Custom Shop Select Series, a collection of instruments hand-selected by Alistair Hay. It features a Pao Ferro Woody veneer.

The Amicus Select Series 9/17 has full gloss finish on all surfaces, Gotoh 510 tuners (18:1 ratio) and comes with an LR Baggs Element Active System™ – VTC pick-up and a custom-padded Emerald Guitars gig bag.

Reviews

  1. David Piedfort

    Gentlemen, this Amicus is the combination of style, beauty, elegance, innovation, efficacy and every other superlative I can come up with. I’m so thrilled and honoured to be using this instrument both in the studio and live, and I do hope it will touch as many hearts as it did with mine the moment I took her out of her bag. I thank you, David Piedfort (Belgium)
