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 lacewood Woody veneer with amber carbon back and sides.
