❌ SOLD ❌ Bourgeois BK Slope Banjo Killer


Instrument Categories: , ,

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.”

In the words of Bryan Sutton himself, “From the first time I played the Slope-D Bourgeois that would come to be known as the “Banjo Killer”, I was amazed at the range of tone and volume the guitar could produce. The guitar always seems to be to able to handle any dynamic level of play. I can hear the guitar clearly in a loud jam session without feeling like I have to overplay and also enjoy a full and sustained tone when I want to play softly. Dana has recaptured that magic with the new BK model.”

After a couple of quotes like that, do I need to say anything? I don’t think so!
