Every Art & Lutherie acoustic guitar is handcrafted in the small town of Princeville, Québec in a positive and safe environment beneficial to producing exceptional acoustic guitars. Each model is made with attention to tone, detail and authentic craftsmanship.
Art & Lutherie guitars are made with Canadian woods that meet strict criteria in terms of their tone as well as their impact on the environment. The eco-friendly method in which the wood is gathered, takes place when previously fallen trees are found in the forests of Eastern Canada. No clear cutting is involved. This not only benefits Canadian forests but also gives rain forests the world over a well-deserved break. The Canadian tone woods used in the Art & Lutherie line 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.
