What We Think

This one sounds absolutely beautiful with a flat-pick. Seriously. I'm mostly a finger-picker, but lately I've been using a thumb-pick to combine both disciplines and pull a little more volume out. This one is IDEAL for that combined approach. With the flesh of your fingers, the tone is warm and complex, plenty of overtones and breathing room. Take a pick to it, and the tone is fat and direct. You'd think it was an archtop with mile-high action. It's that kind of focused clarity. 

It's a very handsome guitar, too. The wide, then tight top grain suggest a dynamic response, and as I've already mentioned, it does not disappoint in that regard. This guitar is ready for whatever you want to throw at it. Truly a hybrid for the truly hybrid player.

Manufacturer's Description from Boucher

BOUCHER GUITARS: AMONG THE ADIRONDACKS

Founded in 2005,  Boucher Guitars has become known as a leader in the creation of high-quality acoustic guitars. Our workshop is located in Quebec, Canada, in the heart of the Canadian Appalachian mountains, and we are lucky to be surrounded by North America’s largest Adirondack spruce forest. These majestic trees provide the wood for our guitars’ sound boards, and we are proud to be the only guitar maker working exclusively with Adirondack spruce for all of our sound boards. Every Boucher instrument is handcrafted by a team of experienced luthiers (guitar makers) and artisans. Our passion shows, in the exceptional sound quality and visual beauty of every instrument we produce…and we look forward to sharing our passion with you! 

BOUCHER GUITARS: WHAT SETS US APART

Boucher Guitars’ location in the heart of the Canadian Appalachians gives us unique access to raw materials: we produce and supply nearly 12,000 sound boards per year, crafted exclusively from Adirondack spruce. This local sourcing allows us to meticulously select the best wood for our guitars; Adirondack spruce is a rare and sought-after material on the world market, meaning that Boucher Guitars has a trusted relationship with the world’s best-known suppliers of exotic materials. This allows us to provide guitars made of rare and unique materials, by procuring the finest raw materials in the world.

About Manufacturer

A few years back a wonderful man named Robin Boucher drove to Sound Pure studios all the way from Canada. In his back seat, nestled in lovely tweed cases, he had some of the finest acoustic guitars to ever cross our northern border. We became immediate friends and his work was mind-blowing. The clarity of the tone, the immaculate fit and finish, the effortless playability. To top it all off, Robin got his start as a WOOD DEALER. He happens to live in an Adirondack red spruce forest!
