What We Think

One seemingly universal strength of Bourgeois guitars is the melding of the tried-and-true with the new. This 00-12 Vintage "Coupe" exemplifies this quality. The cutaway is the only giveaway that this is a modern guitar, considering the slew of classic aesthetic details like herringbone purfling and nickel Waverly "butterbean" tuners. The 12-fret design itself is a throwback to the guitars of the early 20th century. But you may notice it looks a bit different... Why's the soundhole look so big? Why's the bridge riding so low? Well, it's a 12-fret design, yes, but applied to a 14-fret body. So how does all that affect the sound? Brilliantly. Brassy mid presence, throaty bass and singing highs all culminate in a ridiculously well-balanced tone, and the string-to-string clarity is surprisingly precise while still allowing opportunities for pleasant overtones to ring out. Not to mention the dreamlike playability!

Manufacturer's Description from Bourgeois

We are still in awe of the magnificent American Vintage guitars that inspired generations of players and helped produce diverse traditions of iconic American music. The Heirloom Series is our tip of the hat to the guitars that inspired our careers in lutherie and ignited our never-ending pursuit of the essence of yesteryear’s sound and vibe.

About Manufacturer

Bourgeois Guitars are defining the future of vintage tone, combining old-world hand-voicing techniques with modern innovations in design and materials. Built in a ca. 1850s mill in the industrial town of Lewiston Maine, master luthier Dana Bourgeois and his small team of highly skilled craftsman produce some of the finest steel-string instruments available today. 
Known for tonal excellence, meticulous craftsmanship and top-notch materials, they are played by six-string luminaries such as Bryan Sutton, Ricky Skaggs, Sean Watkins, Della Mae, the late Doc Watson and countless professional and nonprofessional enthusiasts. Bourgeois guitars have had a prominent role in the American steel-string guitar renaissance for more than two decades, helping shape acoustic music’s most recent rise in popularity.
