Bourgeois Custom 00 Country Boy Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood with Hot Hide Glue Pre-Owned ID-11364
Bourgeois OO Country Boy
Bourgeois OO is slightly larger then other luthiers in the lower bout and length. This sweetheart is a versatile and articulate workhorse. The 00 is appointed much like the Country Boy.
The topwood on this Bourgeois is Sitka Spruce, paired with Rosewood back and sides. This is a classic combination that is highly versatile for many playing styles. Sitka can be played fingerstyle or with a flatpick and can excel at both.
It is ideal for flatpickers who don't require the stiffness of Adirondack, offering more volume and responsiveness from a lighter touch. When combined with rosewood on the back and sides, Sitka is very lush and has a warm, rich low end.
Indian Rosewood keeps the tone rich and full with round notes and lush chords up and down the neck. The Collings 00 models are always some of the most versatile instruments in the shop, and this one is no different…. it will be right at home in jam circles, on stage, or in the studio, regardless the style of music.
This guitar was built with Adirondack top bracing, as are all of Dana's guitars. The Adirondack top bracing was painstakingly made by hand in the old fashioned method with hot hide glue. Hide Glue sets up very hard, like glass, allowing more energy transfer through the bracing.
Hot Hide Glue adds responsiveness across the spectrum. This type of glue was used on the early guitars we have all fallen in love with, but later phased out due to the time required to use it, not to mention the mess it makes. 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.
This guitar comes equipped with a K&K Pure Mini pickup. The K and K Pure Mini is a passive system for steel string guitar, with three pickup heads and an endpin jack. The Pure Mini is a transducer system only.
It does not include a battery or on-board electronics. Don't be fooled by the sound of some competitors' thin sounding passive systems--the Pure Systems are definitely different. They sound full and rich and have sufficient output to drive most amps and PA systems directly!
This Instrument is in Excellent Condition with only a few light and very minimal surface scratches and dings on the top and back.
Includes Hardshell Case.
