Value For Money : Excellent
I believe this guitar is manufactured in Canada by a subsidiary of Godin, like Simon & Patrick. Parlor guitar format, roughly the size of a ¾, large paws therefore abstain.

UTILIZATION

The handle is proportional to body size: quite short and narrow, it is easy to turn with his hand, which will please fans of the game in the thumb on the low E string. Personally I play a lot more about electric and apart from some handles jumbo I'm not very comfortable on the acoustic, but the race of the Ami is relatively fast and because of its small size it is easily passable.
The ergonomics of the instrument is not his best point, the handle tends to sting a little but nothing really bad either. That said when playing standing, it changes a lot of give and the small size of the fund becomes a precious comfort, it is not transformed into a statue playing with.
Access to the tweeter is bad (forget what lies beyond the octave), but this is a guitar made for playing solo, so we know why we buy it. And a cut on a little box like that would remove much of the loudness of the instrument I think.


SOUNDS

I had a few years ago an Art and Lutherie Cedar, the elder sister of the friend, and my best memory is clearly sound. Seeing the first time friend, we laugh, then you scratch a little agreement, and there they are silent. It takes a good pie in fact. The projection of the instrument is bluffing for its size, I heard guitars at twice the price that were much less. And beyond the power of the instrument, which is attracted to sound even without the need to play hard. This does not mean that typing in it becomes rough, the guitar keeping in effect a dynamic effective and detailed even at high volume.
Treble and midrange are dominant, clear and not "crash" not each other. However, we find ourselves with low down the fault to the insignificance of the body, which quickly shows its limits when bass hits hard in the lower strings. So plan to mount a set of strings that can catch some of that gap.
This guitar is comfortable with blues and pop, which is not bad. It's more a rhythm instrument as solo and fills that use it more widely than his contract.


OVERALL OPINION

I have only one month, but having already owned a Cedar, it leaves enough experience to judge quickly Friend. It contains all the qualities of its big sister, complimented with an additional advantage: the size, which allows the lug around without breaking the bank back. It comes with a real cover (and not a piece of cloth), a guitar pick holder is built into the guitar (very convenient that stuff) and not least: the Art and Lutherie his little painted, and over time really bonifient . In 5 / 6 years you will gain safe, even on a small frame like this. And to top it all, she is not very expensive.

The - the Art and Lutherie Ami:
- Slight imbalance, which stings a little stick
- Lack of power in the low

Most of the Art and Lutherie Ami:
- Small size
- Package more than correct (good cover + door pick)
- Power of the instrument
- Sound Quality Right Honourable
- Getting Started
- A real guitar "roots / blues
- Value for money excellent

Overall rating: 9 / 10
