What we think:

I've got a new favorite. I try my best to remain objective and certainly acknowledge that different guitars are more or less ideal for different playing styles, but when it comes down to it, when I play this guitar I forget where I am. My man Eddie was playing it earlier in the adjacent room and if I didn't know better, I could've sworn it was a grand piano. What we've got here is delicacy, balance, and power; the kind of symmetry ordinarily only found in the natural world. This effect is compounded by its visual aesthetic. The Addy top and Madagascar back and sides are only the beginning. From the figured Koa binding to the snake-wood buttons, this instrument is a work of organic art. In case you missed this while reading the specs, THE INLAY IS FOSSILIZED MAMMOTH. I could go on, but no words could sufficiently describe what it feels like to play and hear this guitar. It's like trying to remember a beautiful dream. robinson@soundpure.com

Description:

We started this model as a Dreadnought and then had a request for it in an OM shape.  It has since become a very popular model.  In appearance it is subtle, elegant and refined in tone it is everything and more that you can get from a Dana Bourgeois OM.  For the DB Signature model, designed a new rosette and herringbone purfling to compliment  his earlier design of the Dana Bourgeois backstrip.  He also decided to pick his top and back woods primarily for tone.  The Adirondack and Madagascar Rosewood he chose for his DB Signature Woods may not be the most pristine examples of those species.  But we can guarantee that they are some of the best sounding.

Here's what Dana says about  his experience with Madagascar :  "Madagascar rosewood will probably get you closest to the sound of Brazilian, and at a much lower price. Madagascar has much of the same rich overtone range as Brazilian, as well as a slightly "reverby" quality. It's a little heavier than Brazilian, so I have to be careful about selecting the right top and the right neck in order to keep the weight down and not adversly effect its response characteristics. "  Since Dana himself still picks every top, back and side for each guitar we build, this isn't a problem for us.  

  
This guitar features  "Signature" Adirondack and "Signature" Madagascar RW.  The traditional  Squares & Diamonds inlay are made unique by cutting them from Certified Fossil Ivory. With finely flamed Curly Koa body binding, Gold Waverly tuners, Bone pins and a premium pickguard you will be hard pressed to find more value and beauty in a single guitar.
