    Ok. Here goes again. I just reviewed the Emerald Chimaera double neck that I bought in May 2018. 5 weeks later I ordered the Amicus because it looked interesting and I am glad I did. What a great guitar. I sat in on a worship team with it and it added a whole dimension of sound behind the other guitar player. No matter if there is too many guitar players around I can sit in with my Amicus because it adds a whole different sound to the mix. The tone even being higher is a very pleasant sound. The quality is outstanding, finish, volume, tone and action is too. The sustain is great. It is really hard to put it down as it is so much fun to play. I didn’t have to learn new chord shapes. It is tuned to D so I just have to play my part 1 step up when playing with another guitar or capo at the 2nd fret if I’m feeling lazy. I installed Schaller strap locks on it. Need to get a hardshell case for it. Absolutely wonderful instrument.
    I did ask about a discount for purchasing 2 instruments in such a short time. They treated me special and sold it to me at full price just like everybody else. Maybe for the 3rd one? I’d still pay full price because these are some awesome instruments. Side note. I’m not a professional musician. I play for fun. Thanks
