We're quite excited for this Mistral OM as the start of our relationship with Canada-based builder Loïc Bortot of Bouchereau Guitars--one strum, and you'll see why. This 2016 Mistral is a finely-honed machine capable of rendering your black-and-white arrangements in full technicolor. The voice is remarkable: profoundly clear, instantly responsive, a focused edge with flatpicks, enveloping and colorful with fingertips. With its wedge-shaped Ziricote-and-Lutz-Spruce body and slim neck for fast fretting, this Mistral is built with a smaller person in mind, but still effortless to play if you're of a larger persuasion.

The setup is so glassy smooth it's as though fretting notes were as easy as breathing. We put the Mistral through its paces in Standard, DADGAD, and Cadd9, and the result was consistently mesmerizing: the bass strings remained crisp and present, the string feel comfortable but not floppy. Honestly, this Mistral blew us away, from Bortot's refreshing aesthetic (check out the relief carved into the heelblock where it meets the sides) to his effective voicing techniques.

New Bouchereau Mistral -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Loïc Bortot has got a magician's touch when it comes to voicing a guitar. This Mistral is deliciously playable, and the clarity of rich tones pouring out of the soundhole is so seldom heard." - Paul Heumiller

"An amazing guitar with ringing trebles and rich but clear bass tones. The neck profile reminds me of an early 50s Martin with its nut width and chunkier feel. I'm very impressed with this guitar overall. The string spacing at the bridge is great for fingerstyle. " - Al Petteway
