Amicus

High Brilliance of a Mandolin

...the high brilliance of the mandolin, tuned for the guitarist.

From: 1950 EUR/USD
The Amicus is a unique short scale 12 string guitar with an independent voice of its own.

With a wide and compelling range of rich sound textures, the high brilliance of the Amicus fits well in any musical situation. The familiarity of standard guitar tuning makes it a plus for guitar players (please note the Amicus tuning is D-G-C-F-A-D), enabling them to transition into the sonic world of the mandolin with ease. Unison strings ring out to create a wide range of dynamics and deliver a unique and vibrant tone that sits in its own space in a mix. For lead or backing, it’s a great short-scale guitar with a stable, weather resistant carbon fiber body. A worthy addition to any player or studio’s collection.
