What We Think

Nothing comes close to beating the pure power of a piano-cannon dread. Projection with articulate clarity, a bold and rounded, rich sound. Now throw on the Walnut back and sides, and I'm sold. The Walnut is almost like a perfect hybrid of Mahogany and Maple, taking the best qualities of both. Mahogany's balance across the tonal spectrum with an articulate airy lushness usually associated with Maple. The sound is absolutely dreamy. Take a chance to find out why we're so hot on Boucher's.

Condition: Used, Great

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!
