What We Think

A stunning Aged Tone 12 Fret slope Dread we were fortunate enough to snag from Bourgeois on the fly, this Torrefied Sitka/Sinker 'hog dread beats the pants off anything the capital "M" folks are doing these days.  Big bass that doesn't compromise balance; throaty, punchy midrange; trebles that sing like birds.  Anybody got a flatpick?

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.
