❌ SOLD ❌  Bourgeois Slope D Adirondack Sunburst 2009

The Bourgeois Slope D is based on the large dreadnought body size, but with rounded or ‘Sloped’ upper bouts. The shape is similar to the original “Extra Large” dreadnought guitars made by C F Martin for the Ditson company from 1916 to 1930. Gibson also used the slope-shoulder form on many of their instruments, including the iconic J-45. However, during the 1960’s many of those models shifted to square shoulders to reflect market demand.

❌SOLD❌ Bourgeois Slope D Steel String Sunburst, 2003

The Bourgeois Slope D draws from the classics – the slope, or round shouldered dreadnought guitars introduced in the late 1930’s by Gibson and to some degree the earlier Ditson Martins. Many of Gibson’s J sized models – the J-35 and iconic J-45 used this body design. Bourgeois takes the idea and executes it flawlessly with the highest quality materials.
This Bourgeois Slope D was built during 2004 in Lewiston, Maine, and features a Sitka Spruce top with a sunburst finish. The sides, back and neck are mahogany, with an ebony fingerboard and bridge.
