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 Padauk Woody veneer with Red carbon back and sides.

The Amicus Select Series 10/18 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.
