The Amicus is a unique short scale 12 string guitar with an independent voice of it's own.

With a compelling and interesting range of rich sound textures the high brilliance of the Amicus allows it to fit well in any musical situation. The familiarity of guitar tuning makes it a plus for guitar players. Unison strings ring out to create a wide range of dynamics and deliver a unique and vibrant tone that has its own space in a mix. For lead or backing, it’s a great short-scale guitar. A great addition to any player or studios collection.
