What We Think

This is a guitar you could fight crime with

One well-directed chord will make villains crumple and damsels swoon

It's powerful and kind in equal measure 

It imbues every vibration with a warm wash of bass and overtones 

It's like playing a grand piano in small room with the sustain pedal slightly depressed 

I've always loved Dana's multi-color herringbone trim 

And combined with the aged Adirondack top, it's as earthy and elegant as tops come

The red streaks in the Madagascar made me grin 

You won't be able to decide which side to show off first. . .or you could just let the sound speak for itself.

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.
