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.

FEATURES & BENEFITS
Our unique soundhole design brings a whole new listening experience by projecting the sound more directly towards the player while still providing great forward projection to the audience
Plek'd to Perfection
Every guitar goes through the cutting-edge Plek process which scans the frets of the guitar and machines them to perfection taking into account radius, relief, action height, and string gauge. This process guarantees ultimate accuracy and playability
Our carbon fiber necks provide strength stability and accuracy. Featuring a double action truss rod for perfect adjustability and stainless steel frets giving ultra smooth feel and wear resistance
Ergonomic Body Design
Our Moulding technology provides us the freedom to create a wonderfully ergonomic body design featuring the extended neck access, asymmetric side design, rib and forearm bevels which all combined give unprecedented comfort to the player
We use the highest quality Gotoh 510 tuners across our range with 18:1 ratio and unsurpassed build quality
Carbon Fiber Bridge
We machine our unique bridges from a solid billet of carbon fibre creating a beautiful aesthetic design that transfers the string energy efficiently into the soundboard
Carbon fiber is now used in all the most high tech industries from Aerospace to Formula one Racing where strength and weight is paramount. In fact it was in Formula One Power Boat racing that we discovered that the properties of carbon fiber are also perfectly suited to guitar making creating a lightweight structure that holds up under the tension of the strings while resonating freely with the lightest touch.
If you have ever traveled with a guitar you will know just how much temperature and humidity changes can effect the structure, tuning stability and tone of a guitar. This is where carbon fibre construction really excells. Now you can take your guitar from a cold car to a warm stage without worrying that your going to go out of tune after the first strum.
Unique Manufacturing Process
Intricacy is our excellence. Our signature one-piece moulding process delivers a guitar that is both incredibly strong and stable, resulting in fewer trips to your local luthier. The entire neck and body of Emerald Guitars are moulded together resulting in no joints becoming weak or failing over time whilst delivering impeccable resonance and sustain.

Amicus - An absolutely stunning instrument
An absolutely stunning instrument with a huge voice! The playability with this many strings is astonishing, and it will be a fantastic addition to my playing style both on stage and in the studio. I’ve had small-bodied guitars of varying scales that often sounded like toys—the tradeoff for portability. But that’s not so with the Amicus. There is nothing lacking in the fullness, volume, or tone. Truly remarkable and I’m thrilled to have it.
