The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Bourgeois Vintage D Adirondack Top, 2015

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

The Bourgeois Vintage series aims to replicate the look and sound of older, classic steel string guitars including the Dreadnought and OM size models. Built in the USA at the Bourgeois / Pantheon Guitars plant in Lewiston, Maine, these guitars are extremely well built and voiced.

Here we’re treated to a Bourgeois Vintage D, dating to May 19 2015 and featuring an Adirondack Spruce top paired with Indian Rosewood for the sides and back. The neck is Mahogany, with a Ziricote head plate, and Ebony is used for the bridge and bound fingerboard. Mother of Pearl is used for the Bourgeois headstock inlay and the snowflake position marker sets. The top is enclosed in an old-style Herringbone inlay, and the back has a ‘Zipper’ center strip.  Open gear,  nickel plated Waverly tuners – made in Bozeman, Montana, not far from the Gibson Acoustic shop – are at the head. 

This guitar is in very good condition, with the lightest wear. There is very, very light scuffing to the lacquer finish and the faux-tortoise pickguard in the usual spots, and fret wear is similarly negligible, but this guitar has been very well looked after.

The original Bourgeois hard shell case is included, and contains the original Specification Sheet listing the options chosen by the original purchaser, and the original warranty sheet.

Bourgeois guitars are impressive. Well known as an expert on guitar top voicing, Dana Bourgeois has built since the mid 1970’s while also repairing guitars. His first guitar building company fell victim to distribution issues, and was restarted as Pantheon Guitars in 2000, and they have built and shipped thousands of guitars.
