In an interview with [Guitar World](http://www.guitarworld.com/interview-sonic-youths-lee-ranaldo-discusses-gear-and-his-new-album-between-times-and-tides), about his *Between The Times and The Tides* solo album, Lee Renaldo says about the A&L AMI Steel String Guitar, "These songs were all written in the last year and a half, primarily on acoustic guitars. One in particular is a cheap little parlor-size acoustic guitar by a company called Art & Lutherie, part of Godin Guitars, and it is a killer guitar. I did a project producing somebody, and they had one of these guitars and it recorded really well, which is kind of amazing. I think at that point, they were $150 or something. I think they cost more than that now, but it is a killer little guitar, the kind of guitar you can drag around with you and beat up and not worry too much about it. I started writing them all on that guitar and some other acoustics."more
