Boucher Heritage Goose HG-26 000 Body 12 Fret Guitar


Instrument Categories: ,

We’ve received a set of new guitars from Guitares Bouchers, including this Boucher Heritage Goose HG-26, and they are impressive. Boucher focuses on use of Picea Rubens, better known as Adirondack Red Spruce, which thrives in the area of Berthier-sur-Mer. Many Boucher models feature torrefied spruce, a process involving close control of heat, moisture and oxygen that simulates the effects of age on wood.

The Boucher Heritage Goose HG-26 is based on the traditional 12 fret, 000 body design, with a slotted peghead to increase string downbearing at the nut without increasing head pitch. This helps add clarity, separation and sustain to open string notes. Here, Boucher has paired the Adirondack Red Spruce with African Bubinga. The neck is Mahogany with Ebony used for the headplate, bridge, and fingerboard.

These guitars are very well suited to fingerstyle playing, with full, clear, well separated tone throughout the range. The 12-fret neck moves the bridge closer to the vibrating center of the top, improving volume and detail.

The original Boucher hard shell case is included.

Here’s what Boucher has to say about the Heritage Goose HG-26:

“The Boucher Heritage Goose HG-26 is crafted for the best tonal results. It will deliver mids and bass depth while finger picking even using a capo at the 7th fret. Evenness and richness of sound will surprise the most accomplished players.

The ability of this instrument to adjust to your musical style will elevate your playing to the point of your finding it difficult to put it down. Many fingerstyle players have told us that they feel immediately became better musicians as soon as they played our Heritage Goose. This gives us at Boucher Guitars a great sense of pride to help you accomplish your full musical potential and to boost your creativity.

The Heritage Goose HG-26 is built using torrefied Adirondack spruce personally selected by Robin Boucher for both the bracing and the soundboard.
Its incomparable playability and versatility will make it the ideal guitar to satisfy your most ambitious aspirations.

The HG-26 is the perfect guitar for your Fingerstyle projects!”
