What We Think

Hats off to Dana and his team--this is what the guitar world needs these days!  A no-nonsense, no frills, worldclass guitar just as ready for the stage as it is the couch. As usual with Dana, the little touches go a long way and reflect some serious thought on his part as far as what the average player is going to appreciate. That satin finish keeps both weight and cost down, the decision to torrefy the Sitka lends a great look and even better sound to the instrument, and the overall appointments and pre-installed L.R. Baggs Lyric just make this one a no-brainer. They're not going to be making too many of these--don't wait to grab one!

Manufacturer's Description from Bourgeois

Generation Series

Some players plug in regularly, some plug in occasionally, and others not at all. To accommodate the widest variety of player preference we've designed an out-of sight, out-of mind pickup installation that facilitates the plugged-in option when you need it and only when you need it. And the best part: Plugged in, it sounds recognizably and refreshingly like its acoustic self.”
