Today we're looking at a Bourgeois Custom DS Adirondack, with 12 fret neck and slotted peghead, built during 2012 at Dana Bourgeois' Lewiston, Maine shop.

This guitar is new, old stock, sold with full warranty, and we're discounting it because over its time here it has had a strap pin installed on the heel, in the usual position. The original price was $4550 Canadian.

Featuring a DS, or Dreadnought Slope body design with Adirondack top and Mahogany back and sides, this slope-shouldered guitar has a mahogany 12-fret neck with slotted peghead and ebony fingerboard. The 12-fret neck shifts the ebony bridge closer to the widest vibrating area of the top, providing more response and volume. This design works very well for fingerstyle and old-time flatpicking.

This was the original configuration of the dreadnought. The C. F. Martin conpany built a number of guitars for the Ditson company including the first dreadnought, Ditson 111, between 1916 and 1930.

The original hardshell Bourgeois case is included.
