(USED, MINT) Dana Bourgeois knows wood. While we are all feverishly hunting for the heir apparent to the all-but-unobtainable Brazilian Rosewood, Dana Bourgeois is quietly leading us into the next Golden Era of guitar construction with new tonewoods and new technologies. The first two of these sold before we were able to list them. We are thrilled, then, to offer our THIRD Bourgeois to arrive with PERUVIAN (“Sacha”) Rosewood and we are here to testify: The wood has most of the harmonic qualities of Honduran Rosewood and Brazilian Rosewood, and some desirable “woody” qualities that neither have. It’s like mahogany on steroids, if that makes any sense. It sure is good looking stuff with copper, green, and black highlights, a touch of sapwood and and thick spider-webbing. The tone is bell-like but less dense and bright than Honduran or Cocobolo. 1 and 3/4″ nut width, ebony belly bridge with 2 and 5/16″ spacing, Waverly tuners, hide glue construction, and a license to thrill. A GREAT flatpicking guitar. Our List: $5,795 One might argue that it is seriously under-priced at that point…Check out the YouTube video of Daniel Marcus flatpicking this guitar.
