Well it just doesn’t get much better than this! Once again I have picked up one of Dana’s Signature OM guitars and had to pick my jaw up off the floor!! Every thing about this guitar is down right beautiful from the hand picked wood sets and understated appointments to the clear well balanced sound layered with rich overtones. The Bourgeois Signature OM features an Adirondack Red Spruce top and eye popping Madagascar rosewood sides and back. Top this off with a flamed Koa body binding and custom herringbone top marquetry and you have a guitar that you could stare at for hours. That is of course if you can stop playing it!

Adirondack Red Spruce has a powerful and well defined note fundamental with slightly more complex overtone content than Sitka spruce and has a high volume ceiling with excellent clarity at all dynamic levels. The Madagascar rosewood used for the sides and back has tight and dark bass response with a rich overtone range. Madagascar is probably the closest tone and aesthetic quality you will get to the much sought after Brazilian rosewood but at a fraction of the price.

The 1 3/4″ bone nut, 25.4″ scale length and soft V neck profile make for a very comfortable playing guitar which is well suited for light to medium strumming and fingerstyle playing. Whether you are strumming in standard tuning or finger picking through open tuned chords this guitar practically comes alive in your hands and provides exciting tonal expression!!
