Bourgeois Custom D
The Bourgeois D is a faithful recreation of the now-classic Bourgeois Brazilian Rosewood Dreadnought made famous by Bryan Sutton, Ricky Skaggs, Dan Tyminski, and other bluegrass notables.
Featuring Dana's unique, single-scalloped X brace system, Mahogany back and sides and Aged Tone Adirondack spruce top, the D delivers a blend of Mid Range balance and clarity absolutely required for bluegrass (and highly desirable for most other styles of playing!) --but rarely found in a contemporary dreadnought. Additionally, the top bracing is attached with Hot Hide Glue, which was the original glue used on the early guitars.
Hide glue has been phased out by most luthiers due to its labor intensive application & difficulty in building a spotless, clean body interior. Hot hide glue sets up like glass, offering a more immediate and efficient transfer of energy throughout the top, making the overall guitar more responsive with a clarity of tone that is unmatched.
Bourgeois guitars made with Aged Tone Adirondack tops combine characteristics of both new and vintage guitars. Players describe their sound as “immediate, “open”, “responsive”, “loud” and “surprisingly broken in”. New guitars made with Aged Tone tops will continue to break in as the top reacts to continuous string loading and vibrational activity.
This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent Condition w/ only some light scratches in the dark burst.
