(NEW) Bourgeois JOM-T, Jumbo OM, Large Soundhole, Aged Tone Adirondack Top, Guatemalan Rosewood B/S – $7,375

(NEW) As supplies of the traditionally beloved tropical timbers like Brazilian rosewood, Madagascar rosewood etc continue to dwindle, we and our manufacturers continue to seek out new sources of amazing tone.  For a guitar to have the “it factor” that combines looks, sound and feel into something greater than the sum of its parts, everything has to come together perfectly.

(NEW) Bourgeois JOM-T “Country Boy” Jumbo Orchestra Model, Aged Tone Adirondack, Mahogany – $4,225

(NEW) Ladies and gentlemen, we have a smash hit on our hands with these JOM-Ts from Bourgeois Guitars.

(NEW) Bourgeois JOM-T Deluxe, Redwood Top, Figured English Walnut Back & Sides, Superb! – SOLD

(NEW) Here we have something very, very special.  When we visited Bourgeois Guitars in their new Lewiston, ME production facility this past summer, we wanted to see all of the rrrrreal good wood.  We knew that there would be heirloom-grade Brazilian rosewood, some cool figured mahogany and Koa, some exotic rosewoods that we had never even seen before… but we

(NEW) Bourgeois JOM-T, Jumbo OM, Thin Body, Torrefied Adirondack Spruce, Rosewood – SOLD

(NEW) We’ve fallen HARD for Bourgeois’ newest model, the JOM-T! Dana’s Jumbo Orchestra Models have long been a favorite all-rounder for players of many styles, since they have the balance of an OM but a wider waist and bigger body for more bass response. The “T” in JOM-T stands for “Thin” and unlike the standard JOM, this model retains the

(NEW) Bourgeois Soloist Commemorative, Limited Edition, Cocobolo – SOLD

(NEW) Thirty years ago, Dana Bourgeois and Eric Schoenberg set out to design the ultimate fingerstyle guitar, one that used the venerable Orchestra Model as its jumping-off point, but added top-tier exotic tonewoods, a soft cutaway for upper fret access, elegant appointments and of course Dana’s masterful voicing techniques. Thus, the Soloist was born, and now in 2017 we are

(NEW) Bourgeois Soloist – Aged Tone, Brazilian RW, Adirondack Spruce, Hide Glue – $9,355
