What We Think

What. A. Guitar.  From looks to sound, this is the finest 'hog dread we've seen in a good while.  We love the Country Boy Deluxe package, from the figured Mahogany on the back and sides to the burst to the Cocobolo binding here, there, and every where.  Dry and immediate, punchy and sustaining--this thing is like the fantasy version of every D18 you've ever imagined.  Aside from a crack on the bottom side of the guitar that our luthier successfully patched (can't feel it, can't hardly see it), the super-clean used condition is incredible given the guitar's been around for almost a decade.  if you're looking for a Mahogany dread to flatpick, you'll be hard pressed to find something better sounding (or downright prettier!) than this dressed up Country Boy!

Manufacturer's Description from Bourgeois

Mahogany has a quick velocity of sound, relatively lightness of weight, and noticeable midrange overtone attenuation. As a result, mahogany guitars have their own sound. Warm, dry, woody, not particularly complex, but direct, lively, and famously easy to record. 
 
Mahogany guitars are often looked at as poor cousins of rosewood guitars, but we politely disagree, dressing the Country Boy in classic appointments such as ebony fretboard and bridge, wooden rosette, tortoiseshell binding and nickel Waverly tuners. We also consider it worthy of the same diamond volute that we use on the back of our Vintage Dreadnought peghead. In addition to selecting only the finest quartersawn and matched South American mahogany backs and sides, the Country Boy is appointed with an Adirondack spruce top (Sitka spruce is a popular option for this model).
 
When Ricky Skaggs suggested the name "Country Boy" for our mahogany dreadnought, we all fell on the floor. We still wonder where he got such a great idea for a name!  Admittedly, depending on which Body Style is used with this traditional combination of spruce and mahogany, you can get pretty far removed from anything remotely "country" in look and sound.   Over the years we have considered changing the name but we can’t, it was a gift!
