SOLD!!! Bourgeois Slope D Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2003

SOLD!!! Bourgeois Slope D Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2003

Bourgeois guitars also tend to have relatively high neck angles, so there is more saddles exposed. In the short term, this means a bit more volume from the steeper angle of the string back to the pin. In the long term, it means that the guitar isn’t likely to need a neck reset for quite some time. Most steel string guitars will over time require a reset, and this can be an expensive proposition. Bourgeois seems to be taking a longer view with the higher angle.

Bourgeois JOMC

Bourgeois JOMC

This really is the most versatile guitar in the extensive Bourgeois line. In Dana’s words; “JOM stands for JUMBO OM. The JOMC is an original body style developed in the late 80’s, in response to players’ requests for a mid-sized guitar having the balance and clarity of an OM–but with a bigger presence. The idea was simple: Start with the OM outline, enlarge it a bit, play around with the curves, deepen the sides, then add the Bourgeois trademark cutaway. The result is our most versatile guitar; larger than an OM, smaller than a Dreadnought, capable of handling almost any playing style you can imagine, and equally capable of operating in solo or ensemble situations.”

Bourgeois BK Slope Banjo Killer

Bourgeois BK Slope Banjo Killer

As Dana says, ” The BK Slope D known as the Banjo Killer has a deep, broad tone. Through wood selection and voicing, we push it in the direction of a bigger bottom end, a lush top end, and greater volume, similar to the characteristics of Bryan Sutton’s original Banjo Killer. When I first started making slope shouldered Dreadnoughts, I went for something as different as possible from the balanced and focused sound of my standard Dreadnought. The Banjo Killer gets me back to that original idea.”
