This Bourgeois L-DBO/N stuns in Fully Torrefied Addy/Maple!
We're beyond proud to offer this first-of-its-kind L-DBO from Bourgeois. When we sold the first L-DBO we got from Bourgeois in a week, the only question was how we'd make the next one better...here's the answer! The fully torrefied Adirondack top and Curly Maple back and sides come together to create one of the best fingerstyle voices we've heard. The baking process warms and softens the Addy's bite without any loss to articulation or clarity in the treble range. And what a look, what a sound from that Maple! The torrefaction renders it rich and sweet. Still punchy and strong fundamentally but far less crispy and bright. Dark, open, and lingering--the sustain is an absolute joy, almost entirely un-cluttered by overtones. It'll be gone quicker than witching hour, though--call us up today and take home your own piece of Bourgeois magic!
Dana Bourgeois' passion for acoustic guitars was fostered by those coveted instruments built in the pre-war era. Bourgeois Guitars' mission as a company has always been to merge our love for vintage guitar tone and design with modern innovation and playability. This foundation can be heard and seen clearly in our newest guitar, the Bourgeois L-DBO. Inspired by the classic guitars that emerged from the mid-west early in the last century, the Bourgeois L-DBO brings that distinctive sound that old-time and county-blues enthusiasts love into a new era. Utilizing Bourgeois' Aged Tone torrefaction technology, this guitar combines vintage small-body character and bark with Dana's signature articulation and response. The result is a versatile instrument with tons of personality, perfect for finger-style blues, old-time accompaniment, and comfortable couch-playing.
