Description

Simply delicious. We’re here to offer one of the most painstaking examples of Bourgeois craftsmanship in this 2016 L-DBO Presentation model. Number nine of an exclusive ten, this is the only guitar in the collection with Ziricote and Aged Tone Adirondack Spruce, an exciting blend of classic and contemporary tonewoods, and you'll find that the rest of the instrument has been done up in high style with a rich bounty of Abalone and Pearl. The Ebony fretboard is almost completely covered with Pearl blocks, themselves inlaid with floral Abalone patterns; a motif you will also find on the wings of the bridge and the heelcap. Antique Walrus Ivory pins, Waverly tuners, and a tiger stripe pickguard for a flash of something off the menu.
A dark and moody sunburst spans the top, which sets off the Abalone trim, and the fact that this Bourgeois comes in a custom fit Hoffee flight case lets us know that this guitar will be safe for the long haul. In spite of this guitar’s trim dimensions, there is a fierce and lively quality to the L-DBO Presentation’s voice that gives the impression of a larger instrument. Instead of a plunky picker, we found real power and dynamism.
It’s an incredible find, to have an instrument whose gorgeous aesthetic is only matched by its voice. We cannot recommend this exclusive Bourgeois L-DBO Presentation more highly.

What a pretty little thing! This is simply one of the prettiest guitars I’ve ever held. I love the dark sunburst, the Mother-of-Pearl fingerboard, the tiger stripe pickguard: all of it comes together beautifully. The small body size is easy to hold, and the sound is sweet and intimate. I enjoyed leaning into this guitar, and it responded in kind. You will certainly walk across the room to pick up this beauty if it was yours.
