What We Think

A glowing, stunning example of why we're so crazy about the "boutique" world of acoustics and, more specifically, the masterful work of Dana Bourgeois.  Styled, of course, after the famous Clarence White/Tony Rice large soundhole dread, this powerhouse sports a just-right 1 23/32" nut width, torrefied top + bracing, and a beautiful set of deep red, straight-grained Madagascar Rosewood.  But what about the large soundhole--does it really make a difference?  Send a couple G runs across the neck and you'll find that the answer is an emphatic "yes!"  

Manufacturer's Description from Bourgeois

For decades, serious flatpickers have known that the simple modification of enlarging a soundhole offers proven benefits. Though originally introduced as a cosmetic hack, we treat the large soundhole with the same respect we reserve for vintage design while retaining, in tribute, a variety of minor details unique to an iconic guitar that inspired a generation of players and luthiers.

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.
