What We Think

There's something about this back 

It's some of the most beautiful wood I've ever seen 

Tonally, it imparts a tight, rich bass that never gets muddy or lost in the fray 

This guitar is dark and magical 

It's got a strong, confident voice that is as much felt as heard 

It could be a wonderful backdrop for a skilled vocalist or the star of its own show 

It's a wonderful player with a quick, dry response that cuts through a mix with masterful precision 

The Aged tone Adirondack top is a textbook example of the benefits of torrefaction 

It sounds like vintage guitar from some exotic land that fell off the map a couple of centuries ago 

This guitar has a personality all its own 

Used - Very Good

We were thrilled to get this unique guitar back in our inventory!  The previous owner was good enough to install a top of the line L.R. Baggs Anthem.  Light scratching can be found in the finish on the top, back, and sides.  Our luthier performed some minor fret and setup work to bring this beauty back to 100%.

About Manufacturer

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.
