Bourgeois Guitars: The Advanced D Model

Different versions of “Advanced” slope shouldered rosewood dreadnoughts have been produced by various companies since the 1930’s but few have ever boasted the power, coupled with the rich complex tone, of this Advanced D Model from the workshop of Dana Bourgeois.

In Dana’s words: “Our slope shouldered dreadnought is only about 1/4″ wider than a standard dreadnought, but what a difference! Voiced for a more open, though less driving, sound than the Country Boy, the Slope D happily accommodates a wide variety of playing styles including country, blues, old timey, pop, contemporary, and–you name it. And if you’re a fingerstyle player looking for a dreadnought-sized guitar that can handle fingerpicks or bare fingers as well as flatpicks, the Slope D is definitely your guitar!”
