Boucher SG21S OM Hybrid Cutaway Guitar

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

The Boucher SG21S comes from Boucher Guitars, who make very high quality hand crafted guitars in the heart of Quebec and their calling card is their use of locally harvested Adirondack Red Spruce. Simple elegance and outstanding quality control are on display when you first observe these fine instruments. Top notch materials and a wonderful build translate to a sonic palette that will go toe to toe with all other boutique builders and classic flat top guitars.

The Boucher  SG21S, in the Studio Goose line,  is an orchestra sized body with a cutaway which is excellent for fingerstyle playing and light to medium strumming. The body is made from the African Bubinga and Adirondack Red Spruce. Bubinga has a reddish bronze color and is similar to Indian rosewood in its tone with extended bass and treble frequencies and great note separation. However it is a bit denser then Indian rosewood which leads to a bit brighter midrange. The pairing of these tone woods provides a clear, well defined and immediate response which lets the notes jump out and sustain. This particular guitar has been upgraded with the Soloist Concert Pack.

The Soloist Concert pack used in the  Boucher SG21S features the added aesthetics of maple neck binding with black dots, a Venetian style cutaway and a K&K Sound pure mini pickup. The Venetian style cutaway looks wonderful on this body shape and provides easy access to the upper frets. Usually the Soloist Concert pack features the Fishman Matrix Infinity pickup but we requested the K&K sound pickup for its minimal internal footprint and very natural sound with excellent string balance.
