Bourgeois DBJC Koa SOLD Discontinued

Bourgeois DBJC Koa SOLD Discontinued

Yes this guitar just might be the next best thing to being on vacation in Hawaii!! When it came time to place another order for one of my all time favourite Bourgeois guitars I decided to try another exotic wood pairing. Seeking advise from the master I called up Bourgeois and asked what fantastic wood set they might have stashed away. The enthusiastic answer came in the form of a highly flamed Hawaiian Koa. I contemplated using a Sitka spruce top but Dana suggested that the usual Redwood top would sound great with the Koa and wow he sure was right!

Bourgeois Small Jumbo Sunburst SOLD

Bourgeois  Small Jumbo Sunburst SOLD

There are many guitars that employ a smaller curvy body size, like a Jumbo that was put in the drier for too long. The idea is to get a more comfortable and manageable body size but still retain a lot of the power and tonal depth that you get from a larger instrument. However, few guitar actually achieve this feat. The Bourgeois Small Jumbo takes this idea and hits one right out of the park!

A true finger style OM cutaway with premium European spruce and Brazilian rosewood this guitar looks and sounds amazing!!  The dark chocolate coloring and distinct grain lines of the Brazilian rosewood are immediately eye catch and are perfectly complemented by the contrast of the light European spruce top. The tone is captivating with a crisp yet silky note fundamental and layer upon layer of rich complexity in the overtones. This one makes me want to play for hours!
