This Dreadnought crafted by renowned luthier Dana Bourgeois and designed with indie-folk icon Ray Lamontagne in mind is a special instrument. Its Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides give the instrument a very responsive character and a nice, stoney reverb. The gorgeous appointments are perfectly designed to give the the dreadnought a fantastic look to go with its superior sound. A few minutes with this guitar will have you writing your own tunes and falling in love with this instrument, just like we have. Thanks to Robinson Earle for his contribution to this video.

Wow, I wish this were my signature model! It already feels so familiar, warm, and broken in. This is the kind of guitar that gives you confidence. It says, "Don't worry, I've got it. Write a song." This top is very responsive and has a way of processing vibrations that suggests intelligence. The mahogany reflects differently than a lot of other cuts I've played. It adds a stoney reverb. It's a really spoecial instrument.The appointments are killer, too. Subtle and just right.
Ray takes great pride and care in his guitars, and so it is a pleasure to introduce the Ray LaMontagne Signature Series Bourgeois Guitar. Developed with Dana Bourgeois during Ray's 2011 tour supporting God Willin' & The Creek Don't Rise, the series, which is limited to 33 guitars in honor of Ray's 33rd year, focuses on the balance, punch, and beauty Ray looks for in his own performances. You can read the story of the guitar here, including a write-up from Vintage Guitar Magazine.
