The entire concept behind this guitar is enormously appealing 

It says, let's just pick the best wood and let it speak for itself

The results are perfect 

This guitar can hold it down it any context

An honest, articulate, and straightforward voice like this commands attention 

The dynamically grained Addy top will catch your eye and the chocolatey sheen of the mahogany will make you want to hang it up backwards 

This is a recipe that needs no improvement

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!
