Bourgeois 00 Signature


The Signature Series of guitars from Dana Bourgeois has become easily one of our favourite guitars due to its stunning beauty, impeccable craftsmanship and selection of premium tone woods. Today we are featuring the smaller bodied 00 Signature.

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.

This Bourgeois OO signature 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.

While this guitar doesn’t produce as much tone at higher volumes like the OM and Dreadnought Signatures, you can still dig in with your strumming a lot more than I expected. Fingerstyle and light to medium strumming is where this guitar lives with crisp but never harsh trebles and deep bass with exceptional overtones that make’s it sound like you are playing a bigger instrument.

The shorter scale length decreases the overall string tension which can reduce playing fatigue. Combined with the comfortable neck shape and small body and you have a guitar that you can play for hours on end.
Comfort, tone and beauty what more could you want!!
