2009 Bourgeois Custom OMS with Maccassar Ebony and Italian Spruce ID-6208
2009 Bourgeois OMS with Maccassar Ebony and Italian Spruce
While we try to be as objective as possible, we get attached to certain special guitars. The Bourgeois OMS has quickly become a shop favorite and this pre-owned 2009 OMS is a fine example of why.
Often times we come across guitars that almost look too gorgeous to play. But, when it comes to Maccasar Ebony, you just won’t be able to help yourself. Macassar Ebony boasts a lot of presence with a broad dynamic range. It has a strong bass, lower mids, and incredible sustain. When coupled with a Bearclaw Italian Spruce top, there is a significant amount of sweet, crisp, and bright tone. Each note carries with complexity and richness.
Fingerstyle players will appreciate the ease of articulation across the entire fretboard, while flatpickers will appreciate the ample headroom and ability to be played a bit harder without a hint of breaking up. Dana has built a versatile workhorse that plays like dream and is very comfortable for lounging while sounding like a guitar much larger.
This 2009 OMS is in excellent condition and his hard to distinguish used from new. There are just a few light scratches to the back and sides, we did our best to capture these scratches on the sides but were unable to shine the light in a way to make them appear in the photographs. None of the scratches are through the finish. Original Hardshell Case included.
