Art & Lutherie
Every Art & Lutherie acoustic guitar is handcrafted in the small town of Princeville, Québec, Canada. Each model is made with the same attention to tone, detail and authentic craftsmanship as our other renowned acoustic lines such as Seagull and Simon & Patrick.
Art & Lutherie guitars are made with 95% Canadian woods that meet strict criteria in terms of their tone as well as their impact on the environment. No clear cutting is involved, which not only benefits Canadian forests but also gives rain forests the world over a well-deserved break.
The Canadian woods used in Art & Lutherie guitars possess excellent tonal qualities. Wild Cherry has a sound somewhere between the mellow tone of mahogany and the bright sound of maple. Another tone wood of choice is Silver Leaf Maple, whose characteristics for sound, weight and density are incredibly similar to that of mahogany. All A&L’s feature back & sides made from a 3-layer lamination of Wild Cherry and Silver leaf maple necks.
All Cedar and Spruce models feature pressure tested solid tops to ensure the highest levels of stiffness and rigidity along with maximum harmonic vibration.
With a full range of different shapes and sizes, A&L will appeal to a variety of musical tastes and styles. Choose from full sized dreadnoughts, 6 or 12 string models, Folk and Cutaway models and the popular parlor sized Ami, which is also available in a nylon string version. Not to mention the multitude of beautiful colours available in the Art & Lutherie line.
