What We Think

Whenever we get word from Boucher that he has some special sets of wood in stock with plans to make a limited run of instruments, our answer is always the same: "when can we get ours?"  Robin gets the best of the best but this stuff is just on an other level entirely--we've never, ever seen Maple with such dramatic figuring/coloring!  And rest assured, this isn't just easy on the eyes--the combination of Adirondack and Maple of this quality makes for an improbably lively, crisp voice, right out of the case.  Not all top end, either--the bass response alone on this 000 makes some dreads sound tiny.  STUNNING!

Manufacturer's Description from Boucher

Guitars from Heritage Goose series are crafted for the best tonal results. It will deliver mids and bass depth while finger picking even using a capo at the 7th fret. Evenness and richness of sound will surprise the most accomplished players.

The ability of this instrument to adjust to your musical style will elevate your playing to the point of your finding it difficult to put it down. Many fingerstyle players have told us that they feel immediately became better musicians as soon as they played our Heritage Goose. This gives us at Boucher Guitars a great sense of pride to help you accomplish your full musical potential and to boost your creativity.

The Heritage Goose is built using torrefied Adirondack spruce personally selected by Robin Boucher for both the bracing and the soundboard.

Its incomparable playability and versatility will make it the ideal guitar to satisfy your most ambitious aspirations.

The Heritage Goose is the perfect guitar for your Fingerstyle projects!

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!
