Art & Lutherie Ami Cedar Parlor Acoustic Guitar, Black (USED)


Our Notes: This guitar comes to us from a student who traded it in. Overall, it's in very good condition. There are some marks/scratches on the body due to normal use. The parlor size makes it a great option for the young beginner or an adult looking for a more portable and comfortable option.


Art & Lutherie is one of the many sub-brands of Canadian guitar manufacturer Godin Guitars, featuring traditional style acoustics that stray from Godin’s edgy and non-conventional designs. As expected, it has its own line of Parlor guitars called “Ami”, which follows the dimensions of parlor guitars from the early 1900s.

The Ami Cedar is one of the many parlor guitar variations that they offer, and as the name implies it features a solid cedar top. This particular choice of top tonewood is works well with the guitar’s small body, resulting in a warmer tone with a bit more bottom end when compared to spruce topped parlor guitars. It emphasizes the lower mids to produce a fuller tone (for its size) ideal for fingerstyle, folk, slide and blues.

To ensure quality and reliability, the solid cedar top undergoes pressure testing. It is then paired with wild cherry back and sides, a favorite tonewood of Godin, used on many of their instruments. Both the top and back feature cream binding, adding to the overall traditional appeal of the instrument.

The neck is crafted from silver leaf maple and joins the body at the 12th fret, much like many vintage parlor guitars. Both the bridge and fretboard are crafted from rosewood while Graphtech Tusq is used for the saddle and nut. It has a short scale length of 24.75″ and a 1.72″ nut width, making this guitar very easy and comfortable to play. My only complaint is the use of a square tapered headstock, instead of the more appealing and vintage looking slotted headstock design.
