1998 Bourgeois Ricky Skaggs Signature Guitar Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood

Dana Bourgeois is known around the world for his superb craftsmanship and also as one of the foremost authorities on the voicing, selection and utilization of fine tonewoods. As testimony to these great instruments, they have become a favorite of many professional country and bluegrass players, such as Ricky Skaggs, Bryan Sutton and Sean Watkins. If there is one thing Dana Bourgeois knows, it’s building a knockout dreadnought. This is a 1998 Bourgeois Ricky Skaggs Model Guitar with a great tone. Bourgeois guitars are truly a work of art. As much detail is paid attention to the inside as the outside. This guitar is near the same specs as his D-150 except with Sitka top and Indian Rosewood back and sides.

It features an ivoroid bound neck, headstock, and body, ebony fretboard with split diamond inlays, rosewood headstock overlay with pearl logo, ebony belly bridge, abalone soundhole rosette, tortoise plastic pickguard, Waverly tuners with butterbean buttons, and a big, rich tone! It has a wonderful, open and woody sound, with great volume and clarity.

This Bourgeois Ricky Skaggs Signiture Model plays like a dream. It is well broken in and is very responsive across the entire fretboard. The tone is quite large, typical of Bourgeois dreadnoughts. The action is very fast making fast solos effortless to play. The Sitka Spruce top is responsive and mellowed on the top end. The Indian Rosewood brings the guitar balance and warmth, and when coupled with Sitka Spruce brings the guitar strong fundamentals, quick response, warm round trebles, and with the Sitka top can be strummed or finger-picked with ease.

There are some scratches and dents on the top, back and sides that do not go through the finish. Additionally, there are a few string winder marks on headstock as shown in the detail photos. It has minor fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
