2008 Bourgeois Country Boy Dreadnought Adirondack Spruce and Mahogany

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, Sean Watkins, and most recently, we sold an identical Country Boy to Michael Harris of Apache Relay. If there is one thing Dana Bourgeois knows, it’s building a knockout dreadnought. Dana always builds guitars with only the best tonewoods, and this guitar is definitely worthy of the Bourgeois name... in both tone and appearance! The Bourgeois Country Boy is a dependable, tried and true mahogany workhorse. Mahogany has a quick velocity of sound, relatively lightness of weight, and noticeable midrange overtone attenuation. As a result, mahogany guitars are warm, dry, woody, direct, lively, and famously easy to record. This is especially true with this guitar. Each note has commanding presence, yet is balanced and well represented. Chords ring with powerful, driving volume and lead notes are clear, punchy, and distinct.

In addition to selecting only the finest quarter sawn and matched South American mahogany backs and sides, this Country Boy is appointed with a beautiful Adirondack Red Spruce with nice wide grain at the edges.

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.

This Country Boy features classic appointments such as ebony fretboard and bridge, wooden rosette, tortoiseshell binding, and nickel Waverly tuners. This guitar also features the same diamond volute used on the back of their Vintage Dreadnought peghead. Additionally, it includes a professionally installed strap button.

This guitar has some very light scratches on the pickguard and a few string winder dents on the headstock as shown in the detail photographs below. It has very minor fretwear which is also shown and includes the original hardshell case.
