Boucher HG56 Heritage Goose 12-Fret


Instrument Categories: ,

We’ve been carrying Boucher Guitars for some time and are thoroughly impressed. Pairing an Adirondack ‘Red Spruce’ top with Indian Rosewood for the sides and back, the Boucher HG56 Heritage Goose 12-fret  is an outstanding instrument that easily compares with any other high end models.

Here’s the builder on the Boucher HG56:

“The Boucher HG56 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-56 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.”
