We were very impressed when one of our former reps stopped by with a new line of acoustic guitars to show us this past spring. As far as imports go, AMI guitars are high quality, affordable instruments based on the flagships models of some the most popular guitar makers ever.
Since 1984, AMI GmbH, has been distributing and producing fine acoustic guitars from their headquarters in Munich, Germany.
AMI´s owner and founder, luthier Günther Lutz, re-ignited the “Sigma Guitars” brand in 2011. Nowadays, his company is successfully selling these high-quality acoustic guitars, resonator guitars, acoustic basses and ukes in more than 50 countries. “Sigma Guitars” has become one of the main brands in the low-mid price range.
So far, international trademark restrictions had prevented AMI to sell their guitars in the United States. But not anymore.
The DM1ST is an outstanding D18 style Dreadnaught with solid spruce top, mahaogany back and sides, and Micarta fingerboard and bridge. Amazing quality guyityar for the "student" budget.
