High Brilliance of a Mandolin, Tuning For Guitar Players.

Known as the mandolin for guitar players, the Amicus is designed with a short 18” scale, tuned up to D – the same as having a capo on the 10th fret, giving the player the high brilliance of a mandolin sound but with a tuning that’s familiar with a guitar player. Expanding the sonic possibilities, the Amicus can add compelling textures, depth, and rich dynamic range to any musical situation. A great addition to any guitar player’s collection.

This Amicus features a cocobolo wood veneer, a full gloss finish on all surfaces, Gotoh 510 tuners (18:1 ratio), an LR Baggs Element Active System™ – VTC pick-up, and comes with a custom-padded Emerald Guitars gig bag.  Please note the Amicus shown in the pics has the old style bridge.  All new builds will have the new carbon style bridge.
