Description

A custom piece from Dana Bourgeois’s fine team! This SJ Custom is a charmer in Madagascar Rosewood and Redwood from 2011, with 14 frets to the neck, Waverly tuners (plus Snakewood buttons), and hide glue construction throughout. The voice is characterized by an even response from bass to treble, with an added touch of warm sustain to the trebles. Definitely a fingerpicker’s guitar, with 14 frets to the body and a short 25 inch scale this Bourgeois plays oh so easily, and we found it took to Open D and Open G as easy as breathing.

This is simply one of the best guitars I’ve ever heard from Dana Bourgeois. Very lively and expressive, warm and rich. I would love to spend a few weeks writing songs on this baby.
