What We Think

The Adirondack top on this guitar has enough headroom to clear a building in a single leap, and the Curly Maple back and sides are beautifully articulate and allow the fundamental tone to come through with authority. The aged top has opened the guitar like years of playing would. This guitar sounds like a 50-year-old Dove on a mastered recording - the perfect balance of dry warmth with an open airiness. It's an astounding guitar that has its own truly unique sound.

Manufacturer's Description from Bourgeois

The Slope D style premium firestripe pickguard is standard. With bone bridge & end pins and our sunburst finish.

The Slope D happily accommodates a wide variety of playing styles including country, blues, old timey, pop, contemporary, and--you name it. If you're a fingerstyle player looking for a dreadnought-sized guitar that can handle fingerpicks or bare fingers as well as flatpicks, the Slope D is definitely your guitar!

Did we mention the standard sunburst finish? Famously hand-sprayed by Dana Bourgeois himself, no two Bourgeois sunbursts are exactly the same, and that's the way we like it. Sometimes we are influenced by the colors and textures of the top or back; sometimes we want to de-emphasize a distracting feature in an otherwise outrageous top; sometimes we're after a vintage vibe. And, sometimes, we're just going for a cool looking burst.

But if a sunburst isn't your thing, no problem, leave it off. Frequently requested options include a variety of back and side woods such as figured maple, figured mahogany, Cocobolo, Madagascar rosewood or Brazilian rosewood. Some folks request the optional square headstock.
