Art and Lutherie Guitar for sale. These are Canadian made guitars that use all sustainable woods. I love it that they're made by our friends to the north, eh. They are really nice guitars too and not made by any slave laborer in miserable conditions.
This particular guitar style and color is not being made anymore as they changed their whole design on all the guitars.

These guitars are well built and beautiful sound.
Art and Lutherie are a branch company of Godin guitars, which also produce Norman, La Petrie, Seagull, Simon and Patrick and acoustic solutions.
The serial number is 00126131 and how it works I believe is the first 2 numbers are the year it was made and the next is the month and then the day. If that's true than the year it was made is 2000 and thge 12th Month and the 6th day ? The year 2000 I'm pretty sure on but not the rest. You can always send the serial number to A& L and they will tell you exactly how it works and when it was made.
All Art & Lutherie guitars are Handcrafted from start to finish in Canada. Being able to say these words and truthfully mean it, is something we are very proud of in this day and age!
The concept for the Art & Lutherie guitar is to take the essential components of the best hand-crafted guitars, such as solid tops, quality craftsmanship and beautiful finishes and build these features into guitars that could be priced within the reach of working musicians. Every Art & Lutherie acoustic guitar is handcrafted in the small town of Princeville, Québec Canada in a positive and safe environment beneficial to producing exceptional acoustic guitars. Each model is made with the painstaking attention to tone, detail and authentic craftsmanship.
The Canadian tone woods used in the Art & Lutherie line possess excellent tonal qualities. We use only select pressure tested Solid Sitka Spruce Tops, Wild Cherry back and sides and Silver Leaf Maple necks. Wild Cherry has a sound somewhere between the mellow tone of Mahogany and the bright sound of Maple. Silver Leaf Maple, whose characteristics for sound, weight and density are incredibly similar to that of Mahogany, makes for a tonally sound and very stable neck.
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.
We are committed to sustainably sourcing all of our wood and continuously strive to reduce our overall environmental impact as a company. All of our 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 the forests of Canada. No clear cutting is involved. This not only benefits Canadian forests but also gives rain forests the world over a well-deserved break. By having our facilities powered by hydroelectricity, to using only reclaimed wood and working with forestries that impose strict replanting models, every little positive initiative helps develop a better world of tomorrow
