Bourgeois Country Boy SOLD

Historically, manufacturers of flattop steel string guitars have reserved mahogany for their plainer low end guitars … which in a lot of ways is a shame. In Dana Bourgeois’ words “Mahogany guitars are often looked at as poor cousins of rosewood guitars, but we politely disagree, dressing the Country Boy in classic appointments such as ebony fretboard and bridge, wooden rosette, tortoiseshell binding, vintage style top toner, and nickel Waverly tuners. We also consider it worthy of the same diamond volute that we use on the back of our Vintage Dreadnought peghead. In addition to selecting only the finest quartersawn and matched South American mahogany backs and sides, the Country Boy Dreadnought is appointed with an extra premium sitka spruce top.”
