Bourgeois Small Jumbo Bubinga

February 27, 2011
Comments off

Last year we received our first Small Jumbo model from Bourgeois and I was so impressed with the guitar that we just had to get another one. However, instead of ordering the exact same guitar I thought that I would ask Dana what exotic wood he may have around the shop that we could use. His answer: figured Bubinga! Right on, now we are talking custom! The idea behind the Small Jumbo body size is a guitar that is more comfortable and manageable  but still retains a lot of the power and tonal depth that you get from a larger instrument. Let me tell you this guitar delivers the goods!!

   Featuring a Bearclaw spruce top and figured Bubinga sides and back on a 15 1/2″ lower bout and 4 1/2″ depth body this guitar sings! The Bearclaw Sitka top provides a strong and silky dynamic note fundamental with lots of sustain and the Bubinga provides warm even tones with a lovely sweet sparkle across the entire spectrum. The bass response is strong but not overly dark and there is great emphasis on the lower midrange which provides a meaty feel to strummed chords and fingerstyle playing.

The reddish orange and brown hues of the figured Bubinga and the nicely figured Bearclaw Sitka top are simply a treat for the eyes along with the perfectly understated appointments. The small and curvy body size, 25″ scale length and medium elliptical neck profile make this guitar feel so comfortable that you could play for hours and not get tiered! Bourgeois guitars once again proves good things really do come in small packages!
