Bourgeois Standard D (Discontinued)

PLEASE NOTE!   This instrument has been discontinued.  We’re maintaining the post for historical reasons. 

The Standard D model from Dana Bourgeois gets my vote for THE best flattop guitar in its price point … period! This instrument consistently utilizes some of the nicest tonewoods I ever see on a dreadnought. It displays all of the attention to detail that you would expect from a Bourgeois, and each Standard D model has its top “tuned” by the maestro himself!

And what a top!!! For a guy who uses a lot of Adirondack, this man has one of the best stashes of Master Grade Sitka spruce in the world! Dana explains his use of Sitka thusly: “Quartersawn Sitka is quite stiff along and across the grain; high stiffness, combined with the relatively light weight characteristics of most softwoods, is a recipe for high velocity of sound. A strong fundamental-to-overtone ratio gives Sitka a powerful, direct tone that is capable of retaining its clarity when played forcefully. Sitka is an excellent choice of topwood, then, for players whose style demands a wide dynamic response and a robust, meaty tone.”
