Classic Design and Superior Tonewoods Combine in a Stage-Ready Grand Auditorium Acoustic With Great Looks and Impressive Appointments
Since 1984, AMI GmbH, has been distributing and producing some of the finest acoustic guitars in their price range from their headquarters in Munich, Germany. Today, AMI-Guitars is a leading brand in the low-mid price range in international markets, and is now just entering the American market.
AMI-Guitars GMC-STE-BKB ST Series Acoustic Guitar features a highly resonant sitka Spruce top with Mahogany back and sides in an impressive Blackburst finish, giving this Auditorium acoustic a warm, rich tone with excellent projection and wonderful harmonic complexity. The Blackburst finish is at once rustic and vintage, giving this Grand Auditorium acoustic a look that is both modern and classic.
AMI-Guitars GMC-STE-BKB ST is a single cutaway grand auditorium style with classic dovetail construction, and a low profile Mahogany neck offering comfort and easy playability. The cutaway provides easy access to the higher register of the neck where the body usually blocks off access.
The Micarta fretboard is extremely comfortable, and plays extremely well, delivering a tone that is comparable to Rosewood or Ebony with its own unique characteristics. Micarta is a synthetic material that is more dense than solid wood, giving the fretboard greater durability and resonance without absorbing finger grease and environmental moisture. Micarta is also 100% renewable which is important in this age of dwindling tone wood supplies.
This AMI-Guitars GMC-STE-BKB ST also comes equipped with premium hardware appointments such as an all-bone saddle and nut and chrome Grover diecast tuners, ensuring rock solid intonation and excellent tuning stability. The electronics include a Fishman Isys+ preamp with chromatic tuner, featuring Volume, Tone shaping, and Phase controls and a Fishman Sonicore pickup with low profile control knobs, delivering a natural acoustic sound.
