What We Think

One part sassy and one part stately, this guitar packs a punch for its size and then some. The top fades to black like the perfect sunset, allowing just enough of the aged Adirondack to peak through. The mahogany back and sides are chocolatey and warm, imbuing every note with rustic character. This is the kind of guitar bluesmen kill for. It can growl and it can howl, it can even hum unearthly lullabies. The Ziricote fretboard and short scale length let you slide around and bend in style. The aged tone top has entered maturity gracefully and the aged tone finish actually lets it breath! If you've always wanted an L-OO, but could never find the "right one," give this a try. It might be like finding an old friend.

Manufacturer's Description from Bourgeois

Dana Bourgeois' passion for acoustic guitars was fostered by those coveted instruments built in the pre-war era. Bourgeois Guitars' mission as a company has always been to merge our love for vintage guitar tone and design with modern innovation and playability. This foundation can be heard and seen clearly in our newest guitar, the Bourgeois L-DBO. 

Inspired by the classic guitars that emerged from the mid-west early in the last century, the Bourgeois L-DBO brings that distinctive sound that old-time and county-blues enthusiasts love into a new era. Utilizing Bourgeois' Aged Tone torrefaction technology, this guitar combines vintage small-body character and bark with Dana's signature articulation and response. The result is a versatile instrument with tons of personality, perfect for finger-style blues, old-time accompaniment, and comfortable couch-playing.
