Boucher Studio Wild Goose Dreadnought SOLD
Norman Boucher founded Canada’s first guitar manufacturing company in La Patrie Quebec in 1968 and began to built Dreadnought style guitars with “X” bracing patterns inspired by C.F. Martin. Norman’s son Claude continued to build and research guitars after Norman Guitars Inc. closed its doors and sold its trade mark in 1988. In 2000 Claude decided to build high quality acoustic guitars with only the best materials including the famed Adirondack red spruce. He then began to stock raw materials and share his passion with his son Nicholas. Today Claude and his cousin Robin run Boucher Guitar Products Inc. building their guitars with three generations of family pride and heritage.
Boucher guitars use a controlled sound board aging environment where the unfinished tops are allowed to mature like a fine wine. Their acoustic chamber is filled with music 24 hours a day that surrounds the suspended wood. The tops absorb and vibrate with the resonance allowing the Adirondack spruce to mature and become more sensitive. This translates into excellent projection and dynamics with a more open and slightly played in sound.
The Studio Series Wild Goose dreadnought features Claude Boucher’s Signature grade Adirondack spruce top and AA grade Adirondack braces. The East Indian rosewood body is bound with a beautiful flamed maple and the Herringbone purfling and backstrip really emphasizes a classic visual dynamic. The treble frequencies are crisp and clear with a very solid note fundamental which is complemented by the darker and round overtones provided by the East Indian rosewood. This dreadnought also possesses a large dynamic range and is well suited to heavy strumming and flat picking with its large volume and excellent projection.
