What We Think

This Classic D from Bourgeois is a marvelously balanced, sensitive beast. The sympathetic harmonies are lush and abundant, while the fundamental notes themselves are so articulate and defined you can finger-pick or flat-pick a storm. Defined and tight, strong and responsive, it's an entirely different flavor of square shoulder dread. This guitar has all the nuance, power and complexity you'd ever need.

Manufacturer's Description from Bourgeois

Our most popular model, the square shoulder pre-War style Dreadnought delivers ample power to cut through any performance situation. Featuring Dana's unique, single-scalloped X brace system, our Dreadnought has become a bluegrass classic, offering a blend of balance and clarity absolutely required for flatpicking, highly desirable for most other styles of playing, but rarely found in a contemporary dreadnought.
