Boucher SG-41-V OM Hybrid Steel String Guitar

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

The Boucher SG-41 Studio Goose uses the OM (Orchestra Model) Hybrid body shape, modified to work better with fingerstyle playing.

A locally harvested Adirondack Red Spruce top is paired with Brazilian Mahogany to provide clear, crisp tone and immediate response. The neck is South American Mahogany, and Ebony is used for the headplate, fingerboard and bridge. Bindings are Maple with Herringbone purfling.

This Boucher SG-41-V has been upgraded with the Vintage Pack, which includes a Torrefied AAAA Adirondack Red Spruce top and a traditional tapered headstock design with open geared tuners that provides a visual aesthetic evoking the spirt of the 30’s.

Typically, as newly harvested wood dries and ages, the oils and resins diminish and you start to get the wonderful overtones and note fundamentals often associated with vintage guitars. However this can sometimes take decades and also might cost you an arm and a leg when paying for a vintage instrument. Torrefying, or thermo-treating wood is a process where wood is heated over an extended period in an oxygen-free kiln (which allows the use of high temperatures without the wood catching on fire). The oils and resins are “cooked off” which comes close to replicating the cellular structure of the top of an old guitar. In addition to sounding more like a vintage guitar this process also makes the wood more resistant to swelling and shrinking when exposed to climate changes. Natural finished guitars with Torrefied tops also have a slightly darker look as if they have been exposed to natural light for many years.

The added warmth and overtones from the torrefied top on the Boucher SG-41-V OM adds a wonderful tonal layer to an exceptional sounding instrument.

The Boucher SG-41-V is sold with its original deluxe arched top hard shell case by TKL.
