This week’s featured gear line is Art & Lutherie guitars! A brand of acoustic guitars by Godin, they are Handcrafted from start to finish in Princeville, Québec. Art & Lutherie guitars aim to take the essential components of the best hand-crafted guitars such as solid tops, quality craftsmanship, and beautiful finishes, and builds those features into guitars that are priced within the reach of working musicians.
Art & Lutherie uses only select pressure tested Solid Sitka Spruce Tops, and the entire Art & Lutherie Collection features back & sides made from a 3-layer solid wood lamination of Wild Cherry and Silver leaf maple necks. This ensures each guitar produces exceptional tone and still exhibits the stability to hit the road, making them a great “workhorse” of a guitar that you can depend on and enjoy for years.
They are also committed to sustainably sourcing all of their wood, and all 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. The eco-friendly method in which the wood is gathered takes place when previously fallen trees are found in Canadian forests, and no clear cutting is involved. This not only benefits Canadian forests but also gives rain forests the world over a well-deserved break.
