What We Think

What a sweet guitar. I don't mean "sweet" as in "rad" or "tubular" or what have you. I'm just saying that it is an incredibly pleasant instrument to play and hear. The aesthetic simplicity of the tortoise-shell binding, seven-line rosette and nickel button tuners only heightens this 000's elegant curves. The Adirondack spruce top has a slight ripple to it, and the mahogany back and sides also exhibit a subtle shimmer. Its playing response is delightfully touch-sensitive, quite like driving a nice little roadster: It's delicate when you want to play fingerpicking passages, and it's bold when you want to flash some bluegrass runs, containing everything from chiming treble, warm mids and impressive bottom end. Truly the sweetheart of the rodeo.

Manufacturer's Description from Bourgeois

Simpler. Cleaner. More Versatile.

Your daily driver, now with everything you want.

A newly designed Country Boy, built around the things that dreams are made of. We kept everything that worked and upgraded the rest. An Adirondack Spruce top provides the ideal stiffness to weight ratio yielding you even more projection and sustain. Animal Protein Glue is used to adhere our very best selection of tone woods together, giving your guitar an extra kick of tonal perfection. 

The 000 is identical in body size to the 14 fret OM, though with a short scale, 25” neck and a narrower, 1 23/32” width nut. A short scale length brings the nut a little closer to the player, slightly reduces string tension and improves ease of playability, though at the expense of modestly reduced single-note power and presence. Why do we offer such seemingly minute variations on a similar theme? Because the 14 fret 000 has been favored for generations as a go-to instrument for vocal accompaniment. 

Bourgeois Guitars

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.
