2011 Bourgeois DB Signature Dreadnought Custom Tasmanian Blackwood and Adirondack Spruce ID-7203
2011 Bourgeois DB Signature Dreadnought Custom Tasmanian Blackwood and Adirondack Spruce
This Custom Bourgeois DB Signature Dreadnought features Tasmanian Blackwood back and sides. The wood is a rich, golden brown color with beautiful figuring throughout. Tasmanian Blackwood is a member of the Acacia family, and most resembles it's sibling Koa in appearance. Blackwood is known for it's warm, mellow tone, which only helps to complement the crispness of the Adirondack top.
The traditional Squares & Diamonds inlay are made unique by cutting them from Certified Fossil Ivory. With finely flamed Curly Koa body binding, Nickel Waverly tuners with Snakewood Buttons, Bone pins and a premium pickguard you will be hard pressed to find more value and beauty in a single guitar.
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.
The tone of this guitar is extremely balanced, with a dry, clear note definition and a presence that only this combo can provide. 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.
This 2011 Collings CW Adirondack and Indian Rosewood with Adirondack Bracing and No Tongue Brace is in excellent + condition with only a few surface scratches on the top, back and sides which we were unable to capture in the detailed photos below. It has very minor fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
