Boucher Signature Series Richard Bennett Mahogany Dreadnought

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

The Boucher Richard Bennett signature series model is based on the classic Dreadnought body, pairing an Adirondack Spruce top with Brazilian Mahogany for the body and neck. This combination provides a full tone with crisp sparkling highs and fast response.

Decoration on the Richard Bennett model is minimal – it focuses on tone and performance. For the top, this model uses AAAA-grade Adirondack Red Spruce, which grows naturally near the Boucher shop. Bracing is the same wood, in a hand-scalloped, forward shifted X brace pattern. Mahogany sourced from South America is used for the back, sides, and neck, with a two-way or bi-flex truss rod installed in the neck. The fingerboard and bridge are Ebony. Mother of Pearl is used for both the fingerboard position markers and Boucher headstock logo. Waverly open-gear tuners are installed at the head, and the bridge pins are by Tusq. The nut and saddle are both solid bone.

The finish is high gloss, with an innovative ‘speed neck’ alteration to the back of the neck. This applies tung oil, providing a non-stick surface regardless of environmental conditions.

A Boucher branded, tweed covered hard shell case by TKL is included.

Here’s what Les Guitares Bouchers has to say about the signature Richard Bennett model:

“Renowned for his guitar skills but also for his humility and generosity, Richard Bennett is an artist who shares the deep values of Boucher Guitars. Designed in close collaboration with the talented artist, the Signature Richard Bennett model is an aesthetically sober instrument with distinctive attributes.

The exclusive ‘speed neck’ and the Waverly tuners exemplify the philosophy of an uncompromising instrument to meet specific needs. Equipped with a 100% tung oil-finished playing surface, the “speed neck” keeps its optimal sliding properties, even when you must perform on an outdoor stage and the weather conditions are not favorable.”
