What We Think

Master Grade, indeed!  Have you ever seen a prettier top?  "Bear Claw" is the official name but, like the pictures, just doesn't seem to adequately cover the sheer quality of this beauty.  You can practically hear this thing just looking at it from across the room.  And what a sound you will hear when you pick this HG up--punchy and snappy when you dig in, rich and 3-dimensional when you back off a little bit.  Boucher's necks are almost Taylor-like in their quick, modern playability--the perfect compliment to a guitar that seems to say "more, more, more!" 


Manufacturer's Description from Boucher

Forward Shifted x Bracing

The bracing pattern in our guitars is similar to the ones used by CF Martin Co. between the years 1931 and 1939. So, during the Pre war II or Golden era. We also call this way to brace “Forward Shifted X Bracing”.

It’s the first known system to obtain this legendary sound. The X formed by the two main brace is exceptionally advanced and spread towards the guitar sound hole, thus facilitating the propagation of vibrations, harmonics diffusion and low frequencies. However, it is almost imperative that the braces have to be made of Adirondack’s spruce or extraordinary hand-pick on others resinous species.

The wood used to manufacture the braces must have been hand-cut and sawed with attention to detail in order to preserve its extraordinary properties of flexibility, resiliency and stiffness. Otherwise, the soundboard could collapse through the years.

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!
