2007 Bourgeois Slope D Short Scale

Bourgeois slope shouldered dreadnoughts are only about 1/4" wider than a standard dreadnought... and what a difference! Voiced for a more open,less driving sound than the Country Boy models, the Bourgeois Slope D accommodates a wide variety of playing styles ranging from country to pop covering nearly everything in between. Fingerstyle players love the increased response that the Slope D provides, even when played with bare fingers!

Adirondack Spruce, "the holy grail" of topwoods, drives the top of this powerful 2007 Bourgeois Slope D. 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 Dana's guitars. The sonic benefits can't be ignored, adding not only responsiveness, but a new level of detail and clarity. The Adirondack Bracing helps to stiffen the top, making it that much more powerful with more headroom and overall volume.

The tone of this guitar is extremely balanced, with a dry, clear note definition and a presence that only Adirondack Spruce and Mahogany can offer. This guitar practically begs to be placed in front of a microphone... those vintage tones you have heard on recordings for years is right at your fingertips. Mahogany offers a midrange that historically requires little eq in the recording studio and has become one of the most popular tonewoods for anyone looking for a balanced recording tone that starts with the guitar.

This 2007 Bourgeois Slope D is in excellent condition with just a few minor scratches, to the top, back, and headstock. There is a small 3mm x 5mm dent to the top of the guitar that can be seen in the photographs below.
