What We Think

A sonic giant with a heart of gold!  This masterful S-Jumbo from Robin Boucher is as sweet and nuanced as it is brawny and boomy.  While that superlative flamed Walnut on the back and sides (the likes of which we've never seen and will likely never see again) provides a great fundamental-based tonality, it still works well with the Adirondack to provide plenty of shimmer and nuance in the mid and upper ranges, as well a clean, controlled quality to the unmatched bass presence afforded by this titanic body style.  The refined overtone content and natural sustain blanket the dynamic range with a unique sweetness--similar to the wonderfully gentle sunburst on that Master Grade Bearclaw Addy top.  I found that plenty of nuance and power is available to bare-finger players, but this massive charmer really hits its stride with either flat or fingerpicks involved--fans of everything from Rev. Gary Davis arrangements to more obscure open-tuning stylings are in for a guaranteed thrill from the first fretting with this one.  Call us up today to find out more--we're happy to help you make room in your life for this one-of-a-kind giant!

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.

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!
