Hi-Tech Carbon

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.

Weather Resistant

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.
