Richard Model N55 Dreadnought Guitar Natural, 2008

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

Here we have a Richard Model N55, built during 2008 in eastern Quebec, Canada. Richard is Richard Boucher, a cousin of Robin Boucher of Boucher Guitars, and related to Norman Boucher, who built Norman Guitars. This family has a serious interest in guitar building!

The Richard Model N55 is based on the classic Dreadnought design, with an Adirondack Spruce top (native to this area of Quebec) and Mahogany for the back, sides, neck, and body blocks. The fingerboard and bridge are Ebony. and the headplate is a Rosewood (not Brazilian). The neck joint is a bolted Mortise, which will make the eventually inevitable neck reset considerably easier than with a Dovetail type joint.

Overall, this guitar is in good condition and plays well. It has a full, warm and open sound, with good representation in the lower registers – this is one of the things that the Dreadnought was designed for! Fret and finish wear are minimal.

A Garrison hard shell case is included.
