What We Think

Wow, I wish this were my signature model! It already feels so familiar, warm, and broken in. This is the kind of guitar that gives you confidence. It says, "Don't worry, I've got it. Write a song." This top is very responsive and has a way of processing vibrations that suggests intelligence. The mahogany reflects differently than a lot of other cuts I've played. It adds a stoney reverb. It's a really spoecial instrument.The appointments are killer, too. Subtle and just right.

Bourgeois Ray Lamontagne Signature Dreadnought Demo

This Dreadnought crafted by renowned luthier Dana Bourgeois and designed with indie-folk icon Ray Lamontagne in mind is a special instrument. Its Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides give the instrument a very responsive character and a nice, stoney reverb. The gorgeous appointments are perfectly designed to give the the dreadnought a fantastic look to go with its superior sound. A few minutes with this guitar will have you writing your own tunes and falling in love with this instrument, just like we have. Thanks to Robinson Earle for his contribution to this video.

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.
