Boucher BG152 Bluegrass Goose Dreadnought

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

Built in Berthier-sur-Mer Quebec, the Boucher BG152 is a rich, lively and loud dreadnought from the Boucher Bluegrass Goose series of guitars. This impressive dreadnought pairs an AAAA Adirondack Red Spruce top personally selected by Robin Boucher with a lovely set of Madagascar Rosewood.  Red Spruce has a high ceiling for tone production which means you can drive a lot of energy with a flat pick or your fingers to produce lots of volume and tone. The hand scalloped and forward shifted X braces are also made from Adirondack Spruce allowing an excellent energy transfer and top vibration. The result is a rich low end with loads of overtones, a driving midrange and crisp and clear trebles with a super solid note fundamental.

The satin finished Mahogany neck of the Boucher BG152 has a comfortable medium elliptical style neck profile and is very comfortable to play all the way up the fretboard.

The visual appointments used on the Boucher BG152 are subtle and classic with open gear Gotoh tuners, maple binding, herringbone rosette and a lovely B logo inlaid on the fretboard. This allows the natural beauty of the Madagascar rosewood and Adirondack spruce become the focal point on this instrument.

If you are in the market for an exceptional dreadnought with an inspiring voice the Boucher BG152 is the guitar for you!

The Boucher BG152 is sold with its original Tweed arched top hard shell case built by TKL,

This model is also available in left-handed form.
