Bourgeois Slope D Sunburst Finish w/ Adirondack & Mahogany Pre-Owned 2007
The Bourgeois slope shouldered dreadnought is only about 1/4" wider than a standard dreadnought, but what a difference! Voiced for a more open, though less driving, sound than the Country Boy, the Slope D happily accommodates a wide variety of playing styles including country, blues, old timey, pop, contemporary, and--you name it. And if you're a fingerstyle player looking for a dreadnought-sized guitar that can handle fingerpicks or bare fingers as well as flatpicks, the Bourgeois Slope D is definitely your guitar!
Standard materials include an Adirondack spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and ebony fretboard, headstock and bridge, trimmed everywhere (body, fretboard, headstock, and soundhole) with ivoroid binding.
Adirondack Spruce, "the holy grail" of topwoods, drives the top of this powerful instrument. Adirondack is generally favored by heavy handed players, and provides nearly unlimited headroom when you need the extra power, yet on this Slope D, also provides a quick and lively response that fingerstyle players aren't accustomed to with traditional dreadnoughts.
This guitar was built with Adirondack top bracing, as are all of Bourgeois's guitars. The Adirondack top bracing effectively stiffens the top a bit more, providing more headroom, a more defined note, and a faster response time.
This guitar also comes with a K&K pure mini that has been installed with the vintage jack! (cable in the case). Stage ready with power and clean tone!
This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent Condition w/ some very light scratches throughout the entire guitar. A strap button has been added(see photos) and the vintage jack K&K has been installed(see photos).
