Manufacturer's Description from Bourgeois

The DS pairs our standard Slope D body outline and side depth with a 25.5” scale 12 fret neck.

Shortening a neck from 14 to 12 frets necessarily moves the bridge closer to the tailblock, by a distance exactly equal to the length by which the neck is shortened. This configuration places the bridge at the center of the widest part of the lower bout, the most efficient location from which to drive a top. In such a large guitar, the result is an uncommonly full, rich and bold voice that is unique among all our body style offerings. If you’re missing those extra two frets, the DS is now available with an optional Venetian-style cutaway.

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.
