❌SOLD❌ Boucher HG56 OOO 12-Fret AAAA Adirondack Top Natural, 2019


Instrument Categories: , ,

The Boucher HG56 OOO 12-Fret is a spectacular guitar, featuring a torrefied AAAA grade Adirondack Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides.

This example dates to 2019 and was built at the Boucher shop in Berthier-sur-Mer, on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River and just east of Quebec City. This is a beautiful area where Red Spruce grows naturally, at the north end of the Adirondack Mountain chain. It’s in overall very good condition. The original faux-tortoise pickguard has been removed and is in the case. There are a couple of small dings on the back of the neck, but otherwise it is very clean. These are very good sounding guitars, with huge voices and excellent playability.

Here’s the builder on the Boucher HG56 OOO:

“Our HG-56 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.”

The original tweed hard shell case by TKL is included.
