What We Think

This is a beauty! the back is stunning and the attention to detail goes in to every aspect of the look and sound of this guitar.  It is one of the most beautiful sounding guitars I've ever heard, super warm and clear and loud! Beautiful and rich yet balanced overtones.

 

Manufacturer's Description from Bourgeois

This year Dana decided to build a new guitar for himself.  In the process, he designed a new rosette and herringbone purfling to compliment  his earlier design of the Dana Bourgeois backstrip.  He also decided to pick his top and back woods primarily for tone.  The Adirondack and Madagascar Rosewood he chose for his DB Signature Woods are not the most pristine examples of those species.  But we can guarantee that they are some of the best sounding. 
 
Here's what Dana says about Madagascar :  "Madagascar rosewood will probably get you closest to the sound of Brazilian, and at a much lower price. Madagascar has much of the same rich overtone range as Brazilian, as well as a slightly "reverby" quality. It's a little heavier than Brazilian, so I have to be careful about selecting the right top and the right neck in order to keep the weight down and not adversly effect its response characteristics. "  Since Dana himself still picks every top, back and side for each guitar we build, this isn't a problem for us.
 
This guitar features  "Signature" Adirondack and "Signature" Madagascar RW. The traditional  Squares & Diamonds inlay are made unique by cutting them from Certified Fossil Ivory. With finely flamed Curly Koa body binding, Gold Waverly tuners, Bone pins and a premium pickguard you will be hard pressed to find more value and beauty in a single guitar.

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.
