Bourgeois 00 Country Boy Hide Glue

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,



Here is a wonderful small body guitar from the Country Boy Series which features a Hide Glue upgrade option.

Hide glue has been used for thousands of years in the making of musical instruments. However, it is generally not used in a mass production situation because it is not the easiest adhesive to use.

Still, many builders are convinced that the brittle stiffness of a hide glue bond will transfer vibrations more efficiently than a modern PVA adhesive. So hide glue certainly has its place and advantages in a small high-end shop environment.

The 00 Country Boy has everything you could want in a high quality small body guitar: comfort, classic good looks, flawless finish and a warm and sweet articulate tone that you don’t usually see from a guitar of this size. The premium Sitka spruce top and South American Mahogany sides and back combine for lively and direct sound with a midrange emphasis which adds bloom and girth to the overall tone.

While this guitar can’t produce as much tone at higher volumes like its cousins the OM and Dreadnought Country Boy 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 focused bass and midrange frequencies that would make you swear you are playing a bigger instrument.

The shorter scale length decreases the overall string tension which can reduce playing fatigue. Combined with the low profile elliptical neck shape and small body and you have a guitar that you can play for hours on end. With a tone this good why would you want to stop!!
