Description

They don’t make ‘em like this anymore! Literally. Bourgeois and co no longer offer Mammoth Ivory bridges as an option, so we’re extra excited to have landed one of their last Dreadnoughts so dressed up, this one from 2015 with deliciously-figured Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and an Aged Tone Adirondack Spruce top. Additionally, the brace stock and finish are also Aged Tone, and the Adi top is braced to Dana’s Banjo Killer specs. Hide glue construction throughout. The white Ivory bridge really sets off the rich amber of the top, and ties in nicely with the Ivoroid body bindings. The neck feels smooth and easy in hand, carved with a soft V and fitted with a 1 23/32” nut for that sweet spot between 1 11/16” and 1 3/4”.
