(NEW) What an intriguing little box! We've been ordering variations of the "Bourgeois Blues" ever since we've been a dealer for the brand. Many a slope D and OM has come our way with the all-mahogany treatment, and we've even expanded it on occasion to all-koa or all-walnut! This L-DBO, though, surprised us a bit with its combination of form, function and fun.
The top, back and sides are tightly-flamed figured mahogany, and the guitar benefits from the warmth that comes with a 12-fret neck joint. The mahogany is spectacular looking, which is nothing unusual... Dana B knows his wood. The appointments definitely elevate the concept of "all hog" though: Fully bound in ivoroid with ivoroid pick guard, bone pins and saddle, Waverly tuners with ivoroid buttons... it's a "tuxedo," sure, but it's a lot less uptown and a little more downtown.
For specs, we have a 1 23/32" nut, 2.2" saddle spacing and short scale. Ziricote fingerboard and bridge. Mahogany neck with comfy mod "V" neck profile and satin finish. Includes TKL hard case.
The cure for the blues? Play some blues on this Bourgeois Blues!
