What We Think

Wow, wow, wow!  If you're looking for a dread that doesn't owe everything to the classic old Martins, look no further.  You just don't see something like this unless you open a Boucher case!  The superlative quality of the tonewoods top, back, and sides jumps right out at you.  And the Bubinga!  Oh, the Bubinga!  This gorgeous (and affordable!) hardwood sings and sings and sings.  The sustain and natural reverb that you get is unreal.  Overtones swirl, tighten, and get louder with every note.  Though it certainly bears many sonic resemblances to Rosewood, there's also a nice heft to the midrange that's more akin to mahogany.  And the top?  Master Grade Bearclaw Adirondack--what?!  Again, something you're going to have a hard time finding unless you're opening a Boucher case (one of the perks of having their workshop in the depths of North America's largest Adirondack forest!).  Which brings me to the extraordinary value available with this guitar and all other Bouchers.  The final step in playing a Boucher for everyone here in the acoustic department (we've got some converts in electric, too!) is to marvel at the incredible cost/quality ratio in these instruments.  This is -the time- to get your hands on one of these remarkable guitars.  Find out what a Boucher's all about before the rest of the world does!

Manufacturer's Description from Boucher


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’ 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. Guitarists worldwide–including nationally and internationally-known artists–trust Boucher Guitars to provide them with the finest instruments available, and we are proud to have earned their trust.

 A team of professional artisans and luthiers (guitar makers) stands behind every Boucher guitar.

Our passion and knowledge translate into a meticulous work ethic: our craftspeople are committed to creating high-performance instruments of superior quality, while also focusing on the highest level of finish and detail work and our exclusive and time-tested bracing styles. This attention to detail results in a guitar that exceeds our customers’ expectations in every way. We can honestly say that every Boucher guitar exemplifies strength, volume and precision, to an extent that we believe is unequaled in the guitar world. The sound and beauty of a Boucher guitar is truly an appeal to the senses: try one, and from the first chord, we think you’ll agree!

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!
