(NEW) The guitars coming out of the new Bourgeois shop in Lewiston ME are his best yet. From their exquisite tone to their unrivaled fit and finish, it’s hard to imagine a better guitar, at any price. The Orchestra Model is a shape that Dana and crew know particularly well, and Dana was pivotal in helping to reestablish the popularity of this design.
This Country Boy OM is a lightweight, crystalline gem of a mahogany guitar. It’s highly responsive with a warm, round voice and exceptional note separation. Dana’s pioneering work with torrefied Adirondack tops and braces is on full display with this one, with a sound that fits like an old shoe.
Torrefied Adirondack top and braces, Honduran mahogany back, sides and neck. Long scale, with 1 3/4″ nut width and 2 5/16″ string spacing at the bridge. Custom “1931 Style 18” purfling and rosette scheme, Brazilian rosewood binding and peghead overlay. Nickel Waverly tuners. Animal protein glue construction. Includes original TKL hard case.
List Price: $6,140… AMW Price: $5,525
