Description

Not a Bourgeois passes through this shop that doesn't wow us, and this 2011 Bourgeois SJ Signature more than did the trick! With a gorgeous set of Madagascar Rosewood for the back and sides and an Adirondack Spruce top, this SJ looks as good as it sounds--and that's saying a lot. The voice is firecracker-crisp and focused, perfect for recording, and packs a fierce amount of projection regardless if you're playing fingerstyle or with flatpicks.

Fast, clean playing is made possible by this Bourgeois's smooth low setup, and the punchy low end is excellently balanced with the other strings to make this guitar articulate and precise, even when driven hard. In wonderful shape, this 2011 SJ is itching to be played, and comes with a TKL hardshell case for protection on those rare moments when you won't be playing this dynamic livewire.

I haven't seen too many Bourgeois SJs lying around in the past, and now I know why: they're cannons with a big guitar sound, but a small guitar feel. The slightly shorter scale length at 25" makes for a little extra sweetness in the trebles, which really stuck out to me.
 
I like this guitar very much. The feel and tonal production are exactly what I like to hear in an acoustic guitar. It also features some of the best Madagascar rosewood I've ever seen.
