Pre-Owned – (USED) Bourgeois DS Custom – CUBAN Mahogany, Aged Tone Adirondack top – SOLD

Keeping it interesting!!!

(USED) We are happy to present another outstanding guitar from our friend Dana Bourgeois.

We’re known here at Moe’s House of Mahogany as lovers of all things mahogany, and Cuban mahogany has been a subject of particular fascination for us over the years…from Bourgeois to Tippin to Collings to several other of our favorite builders. We find to be the perfect blend of woodiness, sparkle, projection and warmth. It is *perfect* then, to provide the backstop for one of Dana’s highly prized custom AGED TONE SLOPE D models – so let’s get crackin’ and kill us some banjers!

Mr. Bourgeois takes his highly regarded slope D model, selects special stiff torrefied ADIRONDACK SPRUCE for the top and then employs special double-scalloped Adirondack “cooked” spruce braces and cooked bridge plate. This enables the esteemable Mr. Bourgeois to build a guitar that has the oomph, power, volume and clear bass response that can make banjos nervous.

While it can kill banjos, this guitar is no bazooka. It is a refined and articulate large guitar with commanding presence and w-i-d-e dynamic range. It is a strummer, a flat picker, and a great country blues finger-style guitar.

1 3/4″ bone nut and 2 5/16″ string spacing at the compensated bone saddle. The special features of this guitar include tightly figured Cuban mahogany, bronze Waverly three-on-a-plate tuners, zipper backstrip, and ebony pins.

The guitar was built in May of 2015 and sold new by our shop last year.

Note: Thanks to Ryan @ Bourgeois for the great photos of this gorgeous guitar!
